This is not a new question I realise but I need help deciding.
After testing my 20-35mm AF I am happy with its sharpness at 35mm but it is a lot softer at 20mm. I've decided to add a 20mm prime to my set but cannot decide between these two lenses. I shoot mainly outdoors in daylight and with a tripod and I can only afford one. I owned one of the 3.5 UDs years ago but that was with a film camera.
These seem to cost about the same used so it does not make deciding any easier.

The eye sees what it wants to see and the camera sees the rest.
