    Found two opportunities to get those lenses. The 17 for 180€ and the 20-35 for 320€ (think I could negotiate them a bit)
    Has anyone ever played with one of them (on A7 ideally) ?
    Assuming that I already own a 35/2 and 24/2.8 I am more tempted by the 17 but if the 20-35 is good enough at all ranges I could somehow consider it as my travel landscape lens (and thus avoid switching lenses, dirt reach the captor...)

    Any though ?

    I've been wanting to try the 20-35mm. Actually, I've been wanting to compare the 20-35mm to Tamron's 20-40mm, but I've spend my camera budget for the year and I don't really feel like selling anything.

    In any case, 320€ is a good deal even as it stands. They tend to go for more than that here in North America. So if you're able to negotiate lower...you'd have an awesome price on your hands.
