16-35 f2.8 or 16-35 f4 and newbie questions

I’m new to photography and just ordered the A7III. This is my first camera so I’ve ordered a couple books to jumpstart the learning process.

Intentions: newborn/children photos, dog, landscape and birding.

Dream setup would be:

16-35 GM, 85 GM, 100-400 GM.

As a newbie, are these lenses totally a waste for a beginner? I’m the type of person that when I get into a new hobby I want the best right away and be done with it.

i was thinking of going the Zeiss route and getting the 16-35 and 55 but I’m nervous I’d be wishing for the GM for UWA

Any advice on lenses/books/tips would be greatly appreciated.

Sony a7 Sony FE 85mm F1.4 GM
