What should I buy next: sony body or gm lens?

Hi,

I need advice what should I prioritise more - a new lens of similar fl like 24-70 gm ii (I have 16-35 gm and 20mm g right now) or buy another like a7iv body (I have a7siii). This is more for speculation, I am not sure if I buy any, but maybe you will tell me some interesting insights kn such decisions. Also the thing is that they are similary priced 2100 for lens, 2500 for body. Maybe someone was in this situation and can tell pros and minuses?

I imagine taking more photos with a7iv as it has almost triple the pixels. Especially since I have ultrawide zoom which is cool cropping. But sadly is not very compact, so it would kinda have the same general purpose as a7siii. I am really waiting for something like a7cii... but not sure when or if it will be released

If I have the lens I may have more opportunities to mix and match lens setups (because sometimes you want zoom on long end - like trips, sometimes on longer zooms - like filming some docummentary in forest, the same goes with primes). I often find 16-35 being extremely good for filming vlogs, while in car or some obscure placd to show the view and environment, but needing 24-70 in situations where human faces are important, where you wamt to be a bit more discreet and not that close to capture the face or reactiom or to emphacize on details. The biggest minus is that there would be only 35mm of "unique" fl BUT it would stay more on camera whivh I always like (I hate switching to specialised lenses if I have one camera body thus the second camera body question...)

I also need ultrazoom, but don't want to rush on it as I feel there will be tons of releases soon from sony and other manufacturers (tamron already started the race with its 50-400)
