Contax Vario Sonnar 35-70/3.4 (not cheap, though).

I concentrated on Contax, Leica R and Olympus. As Canon's WA & standard lenses got better, I eventually I sold off the bunch of them keeping the Contax Zeiss 21mm and Leica 28 R. I'll never be able to recoup my financial investment in the Zeiss although the images are priceless (to me). Both lenses are worth more to keep than trying to sell. They were fun and aggravating at the same time and laid the groundwork for a lot of what I do today.

What did you pay for the 21mm? I consider Zeiss 21/2.8 Distagon ZE for my 5D3 for travel landscapes. Any advice?
