I was wondering about pretty much the same thing myself. I have only the 12-50 and I'm contemplating between the 12mm and the 9-18mm. In terms of IQ how do the 12-50mm and the 9-18mm compare at 12mm when stopped down to f/8 or something like that?

I'm looking for the best bang for buck option for landscape photography and I've been using 12mm focal length most of the time, but 9-18 would be very flexible. I guess 12mm offers the best IQ, but I don't really need the f/2, so that's a bit of a waste. 7-14 is just too expensive.
