Upgrade kitlens: which first?

I take quite a bit of pictures indoors, one of the reasons I got the A7 III. Of course, for these kind of shots, the kitlens hardly suffies. I was thinking to get the 35/2.8 (Samyang) or the Sony 85/1.8. Both might be a bit out of reach for now, so only the 85 is not quite an option (too much tele). Then I got across the Tamron 28-75/2.8 which gets good reviews and could essentially double for the 35/2.8

So what would you suggest, get the Tamron first and later te 85 (or 55 depending on needs). Or get the 35/2.8, 55/1.8 or 85/1.8 for indoor shots and just keep shooting with the kitlens for outdoors.

note: my most used lenses past few years were the 24/1.8 on the a6300, the 50/1.8 on my D750 and the 23/1.4 on my XT2 (still have this). I did use the 16-70/4 and the 24-120/4 a *LOT* on the Sony/Nikon too.
