APS-C Lenses on Sony a7iii?

Hey guys! Well my a7iii is ordered...but BACKordered!!! Can't stand it I just want the thing!!! Im sure some of you can relate.

Anyways, I have been searching long and hard for lens options, and while I love Sony's full frame, I have to say that the lens options aren't quite as nice as the APS-C selection. I used to have an a6000 and liked it, but I switched to canon for the 6Dmkii and am now switching back (finally).

I wondered if any of you have had experience in using APS-C lenses in crop mode on one of the a7's? If so, how does your IQ compare? Pros and cons? Obviously I am saving up for the full frame options, but the 16-35 2.8 is quite the chunk of cash... So I was thinking I could settle for a cropped lens for now. (not all of them obviously, just one or two).

I am mostly interested in landscapes and astrophotography, so have been looking at the Sigma 16mm 1.4 and the like. If anyone has any experience or input it would be much appreciated!!
