Quick Lens Help for the Future

I'm stuck, Switched from Sony earlier this year and I changed what lenses I got with this system a bit, this is what I have for my Z8 and soon will have a Z9. I'm a semi-pro and I shoot a lot of passion stuff with travel, cities (street), sports, wildlife, action and landscapes (This varied list is why I went to Nikon)

I'm expanding the events that I shoot going into the future which is sports sometimes but mostly smaller weddings and portraits.

- Z 50 f/1.8

- Z 85 f/1.8

- Z 14-30 f/4

- Z 24-120 f/4

- Z 100-400 f/4.5-5.6

I know Im adding the 35 f/1.8 and im sure of that. The 180-600 is also attention grabbing.

I'll admit for a couple of events last year I rented the 24-70 f/2.8 S, 2.8 is just better for people in most circumstances next to f/4.

My basic question is: Given the obviously overlap with the 24-120 (which I really love) and any 24-70 I get is it worth ponying up for the 24-70 f/2.8S? or should I get the 28-75 f/2.8?

That means the 24-120 and 28-75 together as a '1-2 punch' is the same price as just the 24-70S.

Thanks all, thinking a bit economical as events are awesome but they are not where I take most of my photos, secondly, I'm trying to not cause too much overlap with my lenses.
