2 lenses for travel with G85: 14-140mm and which second lens?

Hi guys,

I'm a beginner, going to buy a Panasonic Lumix G85/G81/G80 for my travels and will create more videos than photos.

I want to travel as light as possible, so I think the 14-140mm F3.5-5.6 lens is perfect for most of the needs.

But I also want to have a second lens with a good low light performance. For example for street shots at night or stars / milky way. It should also have a better bokeh effect than the 14-140mm, so I could also use it for various shots where zoom isn't needed.

I read that the 25mm F1.7 lens by Panasonic is the most versatile. It's also the cheapest.

But is it the perfect partner for the 14-140mm lens?

Should I go with a prime lens with another focal length?

Should I get a second zoom lens with lower focal lengths?

Should I get an other zoom lens than the 14-140mm when I'm going to use 2 lenses (12-60mm F3.5-5.6 + another one)?

Thanks in advance!
