zeiss 24mm 1.8 vs. FE 35mm 2.8?

so i couldnt find a thread on this yet so i wanted to open one up since this is sort of a time sensitive question. i currently have the 24mm 1.8 and have been extremely pleased with the results. however i am wrestling with the fact that its made for the APS-C sensor...

24mm 1.8


- isnt a true 24mm focal length on my a7r making it more like 36mm

- it knocks the 36MP resolution down to 15MP


- 1.8 aperture

although the 1.8 aperture is a really great feature of this 24mm... im wondering if its really a dealbreaker for the 35mm 2.8 which is full frame and will utilize ALL of the greatest of my a7r.

ive been researching reviews of both lenses and have found that the 24mm 1.8 is getting consistently BETTER reviews than the FE 35mm 2.8?

does anybody have the FE 35mm 2.8 and care to share your thoughts? ive heard issues of some slight "grinding" sounds on the focus ring...

so what do you guys think? should i return my 24mm 1.8 for the FE 35mm 2.8?

any thoughts would be awesome.
