Not sure if you can get it from a retailer, but the 35mm f/1.7 Ultron is a superb lens. I bought it after reading Sean Reid's review, and have been very pleased with it, especially in b&w.
It should be cheaper than the other options.

Also, I am a student attempting to establish credit so I will be purchasing from a retailer which may or may not mean full price.
1. VC Nokton 35mm 1.4 $629
2. VC Nokton 35mm 1.2 $1300
3. Zeiss 35mm 2.0 Biogon $1000
The 35mm 1.4 interests me because of the size, 1.2 because of speed, and the biogon because I have owned own before and it was very sharp.
Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks folks!
