If you feel the 70 - 300 is alrezdy hezvy, forget about the 24 70 gm.

The 135 is awsome but very narrow usage.

The 24-105 is a nice choise but I would take the tamron 28-200 as you are fully covered below 28. You get f2.8 up to 35mm. And f4 up to 105. And of course you get the 200mm. A unique versatile lens.

This is a modern lens, cheap, with IQ as good as the sony.

And for money you save. Get the sony 85mm f1.8. Cheap too and incredible lens.

I was going to suggest something similar. Sell the 70-300 and get the Tamron 28-200. If you find you are using it a lot but need a larger aperture you can look at the excellent - but heavy - Sigma 24-70.
