Helpsss

Need to decide between these:
Batis 25 f2

or

Zeiss 16-35 f4

or

Zeiss 35 f2.8 + Zeiss 20 f2

or

Sigma alternatives (I have the metabones)

I house an A7RII, though i really can't make up my mind between them. I was holding out for the 16-35GM, but due to a turn of events is now out of my budget. This lens will be used to do my landscape photography, and also act as a compliment to my 55mm that i currently use for portraits.

I'm usually shooting urban settings as i am based in Singapore and Manchester. I'm factoring these vital criterias for me:
1. Sharpness
2. Portability

Any suggestions guys?

Thanks in advance!

Try the Sony Zeiss 16-35mm f/4 if the GM is out of your budget. It's more flexible than the other prime lenses if that is one of your consideration. Other than that, can't really offer much advise. Your post is kinda vague.

Go with the Zeiss Loxia 21mm but you need to consider if a prime alone is enough. Loxia 21mm and 35mm will cost more than the Sony 16-35mm GM.

I mean i've updated with the exact lens i'm aiming at. I believe we had a miscommunication about with 16-35 and the loxia.
