Hi guys I am looking for.some advice regarding my next 35mm lens.

I just bought a zeiss 35mm 1.4 amazing lense, but indeed on the big side. So i was looking to get another 35mm that I could use when I dont want to carry the zeiss, I shoot street and documentary.

The summarit 2.4/5 will be the best option, but after buying the zeiss I am out of budget, so i am looking at the following options:

- Voigtalnder skopar 35mm v2 - I can get used for 189 euros

- 7artisans 35mm 2.0 - I can get used for 150 euros

- Voigtalnder ultron 35mm 2.0 / zeiss 35mm 2.8, both very good, but around 750 euros.... so not in my budget right now, unless the image quality is really worth waiting for me to make up some savings:)

Lens will be used in an m10 and a zeiss Ikon zm (film).

Any idea in how good or bad the skopar is? I haven't been able to find any reviews. I tested the 7artisans in the store, seems to be okay, but distortion is quite pronounced.

Thanks!

The 7artisans lens should do very nicely.
