If you could only have three APS-C E-Mount lenses what would they be and why?

The Sigma trio (16mm, 30mm & 56mm all F1.4) due to the quality for the price and the ability to get great shots in low lighting.

I currently have the Sigma 30mm F1.4 and I plan to get the other two lenses so please note that i can only go off information i have read online for the other two lenses at this stage as i do not own them.

I am interested to see what other peoples choice would be and why as this could help me and others in the forum when buying APS-C E-Mount lenses going forward.

Thanks
Adam

I wanted wide, telephoto med and Long telephoto. So, my lens purchases are, Sigma 19mm-f2.8, Tamron 28-75mm- f2.8, and the new Sigma 100-400mm. I would love a Sigma 30mm f1.4 as well, for super low light.
I shoot indoor family stuff, and outdoor wildlife mostly. Lens choice based on content. If I shot a lot of Landscape stuff, I would love all the lenses you listed, Sigma seems top-notch to me, and my Tamron is amazing, I can't justify Sony G lenses financially.
Shooting a Sony A6500.

I'm shooting with the A6500 as well. For my dogs when they aren't moving much, I like the Sony 50mm f1.8; for telephoto, I love my FE 100-400 mm f4.5-5.6GM, and for wide, Sony 10-18 f4. The FE 100-400 will work for full-frame also which is nice for me since I will probably upgrade to a full-frame for my next camera.

Rokinon 12mm, Sigma 30mm, and the 70-350mm G although I sold this lens (regret it everyday) to purchase the 200-600mm.
