Help me build a prime lens kit

Hi there.

Ive been using an A7C with 55mm 1.8 and tamron 24mm 2.8 for some time  .

Really enjoying this kit , taking family photos most of the time. Both lenses are very sharp, I think the tamron is a really good copy.

Now , I have a dillema, I dont really have a "normal" lens.

The 24mm is a bit too wide ,making the enviorment taking most attention , and 55mm is too tight . A good 28mm could replace the 24mm , but I tried the sony one and it wasnt sharp wide open (in the center , maybe a bed copy).

So maybe a 35mm between them.

Also, I miss the 90mm equivalent I had in my older system ,I need a portrait solution

But a 4 primes set? Probably too many.

So maybe 24mm+ 35mm +65/75/85mm ? But I really like the 55mm

Or maybe tamron 28-75 g2 and an 85mm as I use to have in my older system...

So I really like to hear your input about optional prime kits ,and some suggestions for good lenses for the a7c. Im no pro , but I do get better photos with better gear.

I have in mind :sony 35mm 1.8 ,35mm gm , sigma 35mm 2 ,65mm 2 ,85mm 1.4 ,90mm 2. Samyang 35mm 1.8 ,75mm 1.8 ,85mm 1.4.

I added some of the photos I took this year..
