Which lenses for my new 6D?

Hello,

Have just bought a Canon EOS 6D (yes, bought in 2012 the 'first' 6D launched 5 or 6 yr ago) and was keen on your recommendations for which lenses to plug to what is my first FF camera.

-- hide signature --

To facilitate my learning curve, opted for a simple lens to start with: Canon EF 50mm F1.4 USM

https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canon-50-1p4-c16

-- Which lenses would you recommend to cover the standard requirements of a private user?

Whichever types of lenses? Prime or zoom

Budget in total: 3k USD

Favorites Uses: Family events (sunlight and low light as weddings, birthdays), kids portraits (both sunlight and low light), mountain landscapes..

Should I take a zoom that covers 24-105mm? 2 zooms 24-70 + 70-200mm?

F2.8 or F4 would do.. ?

85mm for portraits from further afield..?

Thanks in advance for your kind inputs

Cheers

Erik M

Canon EOS 6D
