Hello fellow photographer! I need help deciding what prime lens to buy.

I am currently using A7III with FE2470GM. I used to have fe1635f4, fe35f18 and fe85f18 before I sold them all and switched to my GM lens.

The reason I switched to GM lens is because I am getting sick and tired of switching the lenses. FE2470GM is a sharp lens and its so versatile. But now the size and the weight is starting to tear me down as I have 1 year old son and I will have a 2nd child on the way. The amount of stuff that I need to carry by having a child is a lot and in a few months I will have to carry more stuff.

So with a heavy heart I'm thinking about selling my GM lens for 2 Prime lens and I need your opinion on which prime lens to get.

My options are fe20mmf18, fe28mmf2, fe35mmf18, fe55mmf18 and fe85mmf18.

My questions are;

1. If you have to pick 2 lenses, which one that you would pick and why?

2. If you have to pick only 1 lens, which one would you prefer?

3. Is it a dumb move to trade my FE2470GM for a Brand New FE24GM? (straight trade and not getting any money back)

Thank you so much for reading and giving your valuable opinions.

Best wishes!

Have you considered a 24-70 f4?

When I'm traveling with my kids, I bring my LX100, FZ1000, or GX9 & 14-140, and leave my a7III "work camera" at home.
