Zeiss ZM 21mm Biogon f4.5 & Zeiss ZM 85mm f4 Tele-Tessar

I'm thinking of buying the M mount adapter for the X-E1 / X-Pro1. In particular I'm looking to buy a mild wide angle prime (14mm is way to wide for my needs, the 18mm reviews are mixed), followed by a short telephoto.

What I'm looking for is light weight, small, good build quality, good optics. Speed not so important, especially for the wide angle. I also can't break the bank (so Leica stuff is out). These two Zeiss lenses seem to tick the boxes:

Does anyone here have experiance of using these two lenses on an X-E1 (or even an X-pro1?).
