For a very long time I've used fixed lens cameras. Now with the BMC giving me the freedom to choose I am torn by decisions I will be making.

I am getting the Tokina for the wide shots, I picked up a used Zeiss 35mm ZE on evil bay very cheap. I was thrilled with the build quality. I've used it on my still camera and it's amazing.

My question is how well will the other brands match up with the Zeiss? The Tokina or Sigma are a must but I'm interested in a 18 or 19mm, a 24mm and a 50mm.

The Rokinon Cine 24mm looks like an excellent lens at a good price. Is it worth the investment to get the Zeiss/Leica level or are the others pretty close at the end of the day.
