Fuji Samyang SWA options for Fuji

Hi all,

I'm looking for a super wide angle choice that would be (a) optically good and (b) economical. I have narrowed it down to two options from Samyang: either the 12mm f/2 (Fuji X-mount) or the 14mm f/2.8 (adapted). In fact, since I'm using a focal reducer with manual lenses on Fuji (shameless plug: check out my review on my website here and here), the 14mm will be closer to a FF equivalent of ~16mm and f/2 light gathering ability on my Fuji cameras.

I understand both have their pros and cons and I'm asking for feedback from members with practical experience

12mm:
  • Smaller, ligher
  • Native mount
  • Takes regular filters

14mm + Camdiox adapter:
  • Somewhat wider
  • Bulkier/heavier
  • Can be used on other systems also (adapted)
  • Needs special filter holder/filters

Thank you!
