Zeiss 24mm vs...? options?

I'm considering picking up the Zeiss 24mm for my NEX-7. I currently have the following:

18-55 kit


16mm & UWA

30mm Macro

30mm Sigma

35mm Voigtlander F1.4

50mm Canon nFD F1.4

200mm Canon nFD f4

I would like some decent performance between 16mm and 35mm, with good bokeh and microcontrast. The Sigma 19mm is extremely tempting and is about the cost of a legacy lens & adaptor.

However, is there any legacy glass I am missing? The Canon 24mm f/2 is pretty expensive for what will be an old lens, but is it as decent as the Zeiss no doubt is? Voigtlander's offerings 21,25mmf/4 will both give magenta casting, which is undesirable in a lens I would like to use maybe on a daily basis.

Thoughts, images, comments, would all be appreciated!
