Has anyone come up with a good third party wide angle lens/mount adapter combination for the X-E1 ?

I have tried the Nikon 10-24, Sigma 8-16, and a Voigtlander 12mm. All were fine, and the Sigma was VERY wide. My only problem was how they felt on the camera. Didn't like it at all with regards to the zooms. The Voigtlander, however, was the best overall in my opinion, and didn't feel awkward on the camera. Some might argue that the zooms have similar or superior optics to the Voigtlander, and they may be right, but I liked the images it made and the rendering.
