Should I buy Sony 20mm 1.8 G or save up for 16-35mm 2.8 GM

I only film, do videos. I film documentary, short films, reviews, a bit vlogs. I like both lenses.

20G: I didn't like 20mm 1.8 in past since it had focus breathing, but now sony seems to add firmware on a7iv which fixes it with focus breathing comp. and I have high hope for it to come to a7siii for obvious sony sales reasons - to boost native lens sales. Or you think it won't come to next firmware update? I have enough money for 20g to buy now and use it.

16-35GM: Now I like 16-35 even more since it already have ok focus breathing and also zoom which make my run n gun scenarious more flexible, but that would mean I would have to save for a few months and have no lens or buy something like samyang 24 2.8 which is a bit underwhelming lens on such expensive camera as a7siii.

My planned later lens purchase is planned to be sirui 75mm and 35mm anamorphic. And then probably 24-70 gm ii if its good (if i get 20g, if i get 16-35 probably 85mm prime or 70-200 or smth)

What do you think?
