How about some help with lens selection for my A9II?

Background...shot Nikon for years. D70, D300, D810 and D750. 24-70 2.8, 50mm 1.8 and 70-200 2.8. I do not shoot anything professionally on the ground (all of my professional work is in the air - literally). I had the A9 with the 24-70 and 70-200 for about a month and returned them all in anticipation of the A9II. Part of the attraction of moving to Sony, to begin with, was portability but I did like having only two lenses to work with.

I shoot my daughter's soccer games, portraits of my family and friends, our two dogs. Do I need an A9II? No. Do I need 1.4 primes for each of the types of shots I mentioned above? Probably not. I love photography and part of my love is the variation in quality across lenses. I truly appreciate higher-end glass.

I have the Sony 35mm 1.8 and the Sony 85mm 1.8 but am within my return window at Adorama. I love the portability but don't want to leave any IQ on the table.

I am thinking of grabbing the Sony 24mm 1.4, keeping the Sony 85mm 1.8 and adding the 135mm 1.8. I feel like they are still relatively portable yet seem to really shine in IQ, sharpness and overall output.

What do you think?
