I made the strategic mistake perhaps, of getting a Loxia 21mm.   


Sorry I got you hooked on the Lox21


I hope the commission you got from Zeiss made it all worthwhile

To be honest I did buy the Loxia 50 first, short after the 21mm.
After much debate with myself and a close comparison to the VM1.5/50 I chose to sell the Loxia50 and buy the Loxia 35 instead. I got some great shots with the lens, but it did not have the character I liked and it had to go as well to fund my 1.8/135GM.

The Loxia 21 is here to stay, on my summer holidays this was my most used lens on my A73.SOme times I miss the Loxia50. The secondhand prices on this lens have gone (WAY!) down, so I might visit this lens again.

Loxia 21 - my lovely lens, but I still don't get it in my bag(((
I own loxia 85 - for my needs, portraits and landscape it's enough.
I love colours that I get from A7iii+loxia and of cause how it build.
Solid piece of steel and glass.

@onsplekkie

The 21mm is very good as a wide-angle landscape lens. I don't think I've used anything that has been close to it in overall performance.

I'll confess I did debate getting a VM 50mm (the APO-Lanthar) but I did feel the gain in image quality was pretty marginal. While the convenience of a uniform 52mm lens filter size was a practical consideration, and the lower price persuasive.

So fare I've not been disappointed in any of the lenses.

@West

I've been able to use all 4 so far in the few expeditions I've made. Albeit the 35mm and the 50mm are the most common. Agree they are superbly well made.
