New XH1 owner - AF lens for video needed

Hello everyone,

I am the proud new owner of an X-H1 with battery grip, Fringer adapter, Viltrox focal reducer, all to go with my existing collection of Canon EF lenses.  So far, so good, and I am quite happy with my purchase, however I was wondering if someone could recommend one or two general purpose native lenses to complement my setup, with the focus on shooting video - smooth and accurate autofocus is top on my list; I can use my Canon lenses when I will shoot manual focus.  (So far the AF with Canon lenses on the Fringer for video has not been at the level I want it to be.)  I was thinking one standard zoom (perhaps the 18-55 2.8-4, or the 16-55 2.8), as well as a prime (in the range of 16mm to 35mm).  I would also consider the Sigma 18-35 1.8 in Canon EF mount if the AF is great as a single solution, but the emphasis is on useable AF, not sure how well it will work with the Fringer.  Any recommendations are very much appreciated, looking forward to using my new setup!
