Lenses for travel videos (Nikon Z6)

Hi. I'm thinking about the lens setup for making "travel" (not professional, more of a hobby), videos with my Nikon Z6.

Usually people recommend one of these two sets:

Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/2.8S

Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8S

Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8S


Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/4S

Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4S

Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/4S

The problem is that the first one is crazy expensive, and the second one is too slow as it's only f/4.

I was thinking about the following setup instead:

Nikkor Z 24mm f/1.8S

Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G + FTZ (I have that lens already)

Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 (this one would serve more for the stills actually)

Where I would mainly use 24mm for the videos, it sounds like a pretty reasonable focal lengths for travel videos. And occasionally use 50mm and 85mm since their AF is probably not as good, not being the Z lenses.

Do you maybe have some recommendations for a good lens setup?
