Derek, I am drawing into that picture. So peaceful.
Joe, I wish I can struggle with decision between the two No, I can’t afford either. Can't judge sharpness at this size, but you need ask yourself if it meet your threshold for sharpness. I have one in my mind and not very high But if it was me, 0.95 is the one. A truly master piece for just what it can do. It is sharper than 50lux slow down. At 0.95, POP is crazy. Only down side of that lens is size and very occasional busy bokeh, but that is “0.95” Bokeh, whoelse has that?
Edward, I forget offer my suggestion about your choice of 21. If I am in the market again, I will choose either 21 SEM or Voigtlander 21. Zeiss 21 is great lens, no flaw to me, but I feel it will lose sharpness (before f5.6) to SEM, and character/versatility to Voig. I have planned to add 15 Voiglander for a while for its specialty and size and PRICE.
35 and 50 are two must have in M line. You really need ask yourself do you prefer 21 to 25 as focal length need but not optics, that is way more important to me even there is difference in optics performance. (Though, I doubt it has much.) I’d keep 25 and get 15 for the reason listed if you must have a change. Otherwise, I feel your line of lens is just fine
If only keep 4 lens in the bag, I will bring 18 instead of 85mm, just because rangefinder is so powerful at wide end. but that is just me.
