Zoom pairing for my primes

I currently have the 35 GM and Sony 85/1.8. I need a zoom for versatility since my main subjects are my three young kids. I’m leaning in the direction of the 24-105 but the Sigma 24-70 seems intriguing. My hesitation with that lens is its size, presumably subpar af in relation to the Sony, and the reports of it being a dust vacuum (even if it doesn’t impact IQ, it brings the sealing into question). Is there a compelling reason to get the Sigma given the primes I own? Is the af much slower? I’ve seen reviews but the af comparison isn’t as conclusive as I’d like.

Thanks in advance
