So, I think that I'll go with the 16-35 and 55 combo.

That is becoming popular with the A7R2 but from the samples I`ve seen of the 16-35 on the R2 from Liesayers posts, the edges are far worse at 16mm than the 24-70 (or my 24-70 anyway) at 24mm even at F4 . it didn`t look magnificent on the A7R either .. either Liesayer has a dud 16-35 or the lens isn`t what its cracked up to be

I uploaded some raw samples. Feel free to download and have a look: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B93HF6w-u-VXcl9na21XSjM3cEE/view?usp=sharing

My take is that it's an excellent zoom.  It can't match the Voigtlander 15mm III at the wide end, the Batis 25 in the middle, or any of the native 35mm primes at 35, but it's a zoom!
