On getting a FF (5D Mark III) and looking for a replacement to my EF-S 10-22, I have become a Zeiss convert with the Zeiss 21mm.   

The 16-35 just disappointed on the edge.  The TS-E 17 is likely a good Canon choice and may be on my shopping list.  14 not so much for that price.   So while the Zeiss 21mm is MF, turning for focus-assist is quite fast and the shots - amazing.  And I dont really miss the zoom.  When I need something wider, I'll look at the Zeiss 15mm.

i've been looking at this lens for a while now, i really like the 21mm focal length MF was the biggest deterent
got some sample pics? is it really corner to corner sharp on FF?

For best IQ, 24mm Prime, otherwise the 16-35, which is really an excellent lens. I use both, and love them!

Thanks for all the feedback!!

I think for my immediate needs, will start with the 16-35mm.....after that, likely going mostly all primes...like the 24mm or maybe save and get the 14mm, or one of the tilt wide angle primes.
