Which legacy lenses for Nikon Z50?

In anticipation of a new Z50, I’m thinning my aps-c lens collection. Keeping the Tamron 70-300 on an old D50 since it won’t work with the FTZ adaptor - I’ll wait until it’s updated or there’s an “AF-PZ“. My dilemma is this:

16-50 coming with the Z50

Nikon 18-140 - great travel and walkabout lens

Sigma 17-70 C - very sharp, relatively fast, “macro”

Nikon 35mm 1.8 DX - small, light, fast, sharp. 
I think maybe two of the above lenses are all I need, but which?  Thoughts:

The new 16-50 is supposedly very sharp, but 6.3 at 50mm?

The Nikon 18-140 is very practical but slow

The Sigma is an all-around great “sleeper”; an excellent aps-c successor to the beloved Nikon 28-105

The 35 DX goes everywhere with me but hardly gets used except for the hurricane-like granddaughter.

So, the sophomoric question, which two (?) would you choose and why?  I hope to be walking and traveling a lot with what you nominate - no more weddings, reportage, etc.  Thank you in advance, Ron
