$1K to get into Fujifilm - could use some purchase advice

I'm having trouble deciding which package below offers the best value with serious consideration for future-proofing. My budget is $1K US including tax, shipping, maybe an extra battery or two, etc.

XE3 w/18-55mm - $800

XE3 w/23mm f2 - $750

X-T30 w/15-45mm - $850

I typically shoot primes with my current gear, but I like having zooms available. Assuming I prefer the Fujifilm gear to my M43 gear, I'll sell my current gear and use the proceeds to pick up more lenses. Eventually, I'll want a normal zoom, a telephoto zoom (or maybe a superzoom) and a couple primes in the 35-90mm range. Preferably, one of the above will have macro capabilities.

I am an enthusiast with interest in most types of photography and an increasing interest in video. I want to try Fujifilm gear because I enjoy traditional controls, and I have long admired the colors and rendering I've seen from the system.

With that in mind, which package offers the best starting point in your opinion?
