Sure, if the 12mm is worth the extra 100 EUR then why not? But lets not stop there....which it looks like the OP certainly did not haha!

12mm is great for landscapes. Maybe that's valuable for the OP. The 12-32mm is also very compact making it highly portable.

To update everyone - I did not buy either of the 3. I am still getting along with just my 5 and 20mm 1.7.

I do still want to buy a zoom lens for convenience, but I want my zoom to be of similar quality to my primes. I don't want to take a photograph with a zoom and later regret not taking the same photo with a higher quality prime.

So, in that case, I am leaning towards the more expensive 12-35mm zoom. Due to its price, I am just waiting and waiting for it to lower to a more affordable price.

Would that be that great? I mean, that would render your primes pretty useless. I've heard people who have O12-40 end up selling their primes, unless portability was a concern. I'm not sure if it is of concern to you.

I would plan to use the primes if I was going lightweight, as a walkabout lens or if I needed those extra stops of light.
