Now, there are enough owners and testers, so an answer must be out there.

I will be travelling through the capitals of some European countries and I want to travel light.

So, in addition to my FE 35/2.8 and FE 55/1.8, which wide should I seek for?

- light and relative small

- sharp when stopped down

- easy to correct in PP or already optically corrected (you know, architecture is the main photography during this trips).

The ones I'm thinking of are:

- Voigtlander 15/4.5 - I saw some corrected photos taken with A7 and it looked promising

- Voigtlander 21/1.8 - expensive solution, but...

- Samyang/Rokinon 14/2.8 (T3.5) - correctable in PP, but on the huge side

- Sony 20/2.8 - I have not seen any photos in combination with A7/R

Suggestions, please?

I am planning a 2-month trip to Patagonia.  My main interest is PJs, stills and videos. It's an easy decision for me, all are ready:

A. Cameras:

1. A7R

2. HX50V p&s (social, occasional static wildlife)

B. Lenses:

1. FE 24-70/4 - walk around. landscape (avoid straight edges near borders, etc, for those horrible mustache)

2. M 35Lux - low light, in-door

3. M WATE - UWA landscape

C. Accessories - Small tripod etc

Cameras + lenses + Accessories ==> 4lbs.
