Sounds like a good plan. I should know, I have 4 Zeiss MF lenses, 2 Nikon MF lenses, and 2 Voigtlander MF lenses. but I did not go with the Zeiss 21. Why?

You are correct, the images on the web are outstanding. But, at least for me, you must discount those with similarly outstanding subjects - exotic landscapes, breathtaking sun and light, etc. - to get the true measure of the lens. I went with the nikon 24 1.4G, because it was more versatile, and because I am not comfortable with lenses any wider. The AF is nice, particularly matched with the 85 1.4G, and, soon, the new Sigma...
