Moving from 2 primes to 1 zoom? 18mm/55mm to 24-70mm

Shooting with the A9. Has anyone made the switch from primes to zooms? I have the Batis 18mm 2.8, the Zeiss 55mm 1.8 and the 70-200 2.8 GM. Considering returning the two primes and going for the 24-70 2.8 GM. I came from Nikon where I had that identical setup and while heavier, it seemed to work. I used the Batis for some WA shots and it’s almost too wide. I noticed how much I was changing lenses over the weekend and between the general hassle of it and how much more likely that dust makes its way into my A9, this swap out came to mind.

I do not shoot weddings or much video. I primarily shoot lifestyle, casual portraits and limited landscapes (95% of my work is aerial).

Opinions?
