I just got my pre-owned Zeiss 100 f2 zr.2, and wow. I can see what all the fuss is about. (Landed one one in like-new condition.)

Just a few casual shots with my d800, accidentially shot in JPEG fine small were pretty impressive in terms of sharpness, color, contrast, etc. I'm hoping this is not a placebo effect.

Now I'm in a spiral of ZAS. Zeiss aquisition syndrome. Feeling an urge for the Zeiss 21 2.8. (Equally hallowed????) Without the sofa change to fund it. So that means selling stuff if I want more Zeiss in my life.

Selling lenses would mean a big hit. I saw somebody selling an 85 1.4 on here at what looked like a very low price.

I would take a hit on current lenses. But after seeing the Zeiss 100 the 21 mm is very tempting.

So questions are:

Is the Zeiss 21 2.8 as good as the 100?
If yes, which of the lenses below should I prune to fund it?

Current lenses are:

Zeiss 100 f2
24-70
24 2.8 ais
50 1.8 ais
105 2.8 macro
14-24
85 1.4G
50 1.4G
28-300 Nikon
Tokina 100-300 f4

Lenses are clearly not a limiting photo factor for me.
