Post Black Friday wide-angle doubt: 11 laowa rf+16-35 or 12-24?

I love and hate the Black Friday and Christmas offers.

I use  wide-angle under 20mm  for pano, landscape and architectural photo and I wish every time have a more wide-angle lens with less distortion.

For wide-angle I use usually 16-35 or move with 20G for light equipment.

I use sony a7Riii and in the future the sony A7IV

I need decide one of this two options:

1) buy 11 laowa RL to use with my old zeiss 16-35 .

Pro I can move light if I use 11+20g, next year I can buy 14gm if I need and sell 16-35. Both lens use normal filter . More ch eap solution (It cost 130-150€ less option 2)

Cons Laowa No chip, no exif , mf lens (in the landscape isn't necessary) , no water sealed (Is good the support?)

2) Sell 16-35 and buy the 12-24 f4 .

Pro: G lens, more compact lens than zeiss (in the videos 12-24 no extend zoom ring) , AF all f4 . More IQ than 11 laowa + 16-35?

Cons: need big expensive filter and more distortion at 12 than laowa 11?
