Lenses with most character?

I'm about to sell my Canon 5D mkIV and quite a few lenses and go fully Sony. I already have the A7III and will be ordering an A7IV.

With my Canon I loved the rendering of the 70-200 f2.8 L II but used it less and less due to the size. And ended up using the Sony 85mm 1.8.

One lens i loved was the 35mm L 1.4 so creamy and lovely colours.

So I'm wondering what people consider the FE lenses with the most character and lovely rendering.

I'm mostly into portraits, both with strobe and candid as well as landscape and street.

I also want something small and light for street stuff. In fact small and light will probably make me pick up the camera more! I got fed up with lugging 3 zooms and a tripod with my 5D.

Will be sad to see my Canon 24-70 2.8 L II go but maybe I can get what i need for landscape with a good 35mm.

Would love to hear any suggestions?

Lenses I already have:

Zeiss Loxia 35mm and 50mm

Sony 28mm f2

Sony 35mm 2.8

Sony 55mm 1.8

Sony 85mm 1.8
