What's your lens kit?

I am interested in what others have decided to use with their A7* cameras.

In my case;

Sigma Art 14 F1.8 and Irix Firefly 15mm F2.4 Sigma MC11 adapter and Metabones 3 adapter.

Sony FE 24-70 F2.8 GM lens ( my main lens). (I went through a Canon 24-70 F4L and F2.8L ii first). Love the lens but its pretty large and heavy which makes me reluctant to travel with it.

Canon 70-200 F4 L (cheap but very nice).

Sigma Art 35 1.4 (returned as it wouldn't work reliably on A7r3 and Metabones 3 adapter).

Loxia 21, 35 and 50. I really only use the 21 the most. I should use the 35 and 50 more.

Batis 25 and 85 1.8 - really like both of these lenses. AF is instant, great colour.

Sony Zeiss 55 1.8 - everyone loves this one. It also was one of the only lenses that would fit my A7r2 in an underwater camera housing shooting coral.

I am interested in 24-105 F4 (but a bit of an overlap with the 24-70GM as I can use crop mode to get 105mm).

Interested in 16-35 F4 and 12-24 F4. Both get rave reviews. Not entirely needed as 24mm is wide enough most of the time but 16-35 may be useful at times.

24 1.4GM could be a good astro lens. I think Sigma Art 35 1.4 in FE mount may be better as its a wider aperture.

What lens lineup have you settled on?

If those rumoured Zeiss pancake lenses came out I would buy them straight away.
