what should be my first RF lens? RF 35? RF 24-105 or EF mount 85

I have had my eosR about 9 months now .  I shoot landscapes and portraits.   I have a few a EF lens but NO kit lens at all.   I have the Tamron 15-30 2.8 gen 1, canon 50 1.8, the Tamron 70-200 gen 2.   I feel that I liack a 85 mm lens.  I certainly can’t afford the RF 1.2 nor would I need it, but the  EF 1.8 by Canon does not seem to appealing..  maybe a third party EF lens or just deal with the old EF cannon version for now.   The RF 24-105 would be great for daytime landscapes as my current lens are very heavy and annoying to change in the field.   The RF 35 could be a cheaper light weight option as well   The Cannon 50 1.8 lacks good image quality but I find it a nice focal length on full frame.  I use this lens more since I went full frame but I do miss the more tight 85 mm for portraits.    My Tamron 70-200 does great for portraits especially outside but it is heavy, so certainly a 85 mm 1.8 or 1.4 would be much lighter     
i keep going back and fourth on what should be my next lens, I tend to lean towards an 85 mm but it would have to be an EF version at this point.  The light weight option of the RF 24-105 or RF 35 is appealing.    I need a good portrait lens, my 50 mm is ok, but rather then replace it, I think a 85 mm would be better option    Ok I am rambling here, Amy advice?    My natural move would be either the RF kit lens or the 85.  The RF 35 maybe if I bought an EF 85 and needed something light weight.  One issue I a, considering is the adapter. Now I keep the adapter mounted to the camera and since I have all EF lens I have no issues, but when I start to buy a few RF lens I worry I may get annoyed having an extra step to deal with.   Ok thanks for any input
