Nice post and welcome! Personally, I would consider the 17 or 25 Pro for the freebie but also pick up a Voigtlander at some point. My choice might be the 25 Pro/Voigtlander 17. You can't go wrong with the opposite though, 17 Pro/Voigtlander 25. You are strongly considering the 17 Pro so that is probably the way to go. I like to buy used and if I don't like the lens or I change my wants/needs, I can sell it for close to even money or lose maybe a little (call it a long term rental fee!) Keep in mind the Voigtlanders are not weather resistant so that maybe a factor. Good luck on your choice!

Thanks!

Good advice indeed. The thing is that I would be very happy not to buy another lens after this free one as I think I already have too many very close options.

As to the Voigtlanders, from what I've read, Voigtlander 25 is not that good, so if I buy a Voigtlander, it will be 17.5.
