I have the 14mm and like it a lot - incredible lack of optical distortion for such a wide lens. And f2.8 is nice too, sometimes. I'm surely going to buy the 10-24 when it comes out and see how I like it. If I find myself not using the 14 much once I have the 10-24, I'll probably sell it. But if the 10-24 is too big, isn't corrected well enough, etc, I may not keep it, in which case I'll keep the 14 for the Fuji and the much smaller Olympus 9-18 for my OMD. I suspect the 10-24 could cause me to sell the 14 and 9-18, but we'll see...

If 10-24 turns out optically good' you will take a heavy loss reselling the 14 mm.

I am waiting for 10-24 myself, but I'm somwhat pessimistic about its future price (27mm pancake price is outright ridiculous, hope that 's not a new trend for Fuji).

On the other hand' if it does turn out unreasonable' I would buy the Sigma 8-16 instead and adapt it. DOF is pretty much infinite there anyway, I'm not sure autofocus is even needed there (for most - not all) WA applications.
