I would keep the 15mm 2.8 which must be PERFECT for astrophotography (if this is your thing of course).
That's partly why I bought one.

For wide angle landscape, I don't see the need of AF. Plus it is wider than the 16-35 IS.
+1. As a landscape lens, manual focus is fine.

The 15mm is a special lens for me. It might only get used once or twice a month, but when I need it for those UWA shots, it does it's stuff really well. And at the risk of being burnt at the stake, AF is a little over rated in a lens if the subject doesn't move (eg: landscape). For me, landscape is all about the sharpness, contrast and colour rendition, which the Zeiss does really well.
5D mk3 with grip, 300 f4 L, 100 IS Macro L, 50 f1.4, 50 f1.8, 40 f2.8 pancake, 35 f2, 1.4x TC III, Zeiss 15mm f2.8, 24 f1.4 L
580EX II, MT-24EX Macro Flash
EF 12mm and 25mm II Extension tubes

Changed my mind. Not selling any of them. At least for now.
