Which prime set to start with

I am looking to get a 35mm and an 85mm for travel photography and events/portraits. I also do landscape/hiking shots but never go particularly wide but will add a 24 eventually.

The options I’m looking at are

Samyang 35mm f1.4 with the Sony 85mm 1.8

Samyang 35mm 2.8 with Zeiss Batis 85mm 1.8

Zeiss 35mm 2.8 with Sony 85mm 1.8

Has anyone had and used the lens options to compare? I am just a little concerned over quality control of the Samyang/rokinon from reviews of broken focus and aperture being stuck. The Samyang AF lineup seems to get good reviews over image quality. I’m not sure how picky I am about af speed but I can say that I purchased the Sony 50mm 1.8 and am returning it because I don’t like the autofocus speed and accuracy as well as 50mm is Justin meh focal distance for me. Thanks for opinions in advance.
