Which lenses for A6500 to be comparable to RX10iv in ability and price?

The two cameras I am looking at are the A6500 and the RX10iv. I am coming from a 1/2.3" sensor point-and-shoot Canon 12mp with 12x zoom. It is time to upgrade!

The RX10 iv offers me convenience and a high quality Zeiss lens for $1700 USD but it is bulky and only 1" sensor. The 25x zoom is attractive to me.

The A6500 offers a bigger APS sensor in a small package but with the inconvenience of not having an all-in-one lens. I will not mind having 2 lenses... it is a trade-off that I will live with to have a bigger sensor.

I'm asking for some suggestions for those 2 lenses to compete with the RX10iv. It seems that every "good quality" lens that I have found brings the price well above the RX10iv even though the A6500 body is now about $1000. The cheap-er sony lenses have gotten bad reviews.

My uses include vacations trips to cities, possibly wildlife, scenery, landscapes in the near future. I'd like the 4K video. I am not a professional.

Any suggestions, thoughts, tips are appreciated

Thank you very much!
