Mike, if I recall correctly, you concluded a few days ago that the Sigma 35/1.4 Art was your favorite 35 for landscapes, beating out even the Zeiss 35.

Yet, if you only had three lenses for landscapes, you would still rather have both the Zeiss 21 and the Nikon 24, at nearly the same focal length, than pick one of them and spread out a little by adding your very favorite 35 for this exact purpose.

I can imagine various reasons, but I'd rather hear it from you given how carefully you analyze these things: why would you rather have the (Zeiss 21, Nikon 24) pair than either the (Zeiss 21, Sigma 35) or (Nikon 24, Sigma 35) pairs?
