Any 24mm (35mm EFL) fast prime (except Z24)?

After experimenting with different focal lengths I noticed that I do most of my shots near 23-25mm on zoom. So naturally I was just wondering if there is any 24mm or around so, fast prime except $1000 Zeiss - a little too expensive. Maybe some Canikon or RF lenses? Preference to sharpest ones, but I assume I may not have a choice?

P.S. It seems like I've not "discovered America" and this focal length is very popular: Fuji x100/x100s, Sony RX1/RX1R (Ricoh GR (a little too long 28mm but still close) and so on. I feel like this FL (around 24mm APS-C or 35mm on FF) is most versatile - you can work indoors from really close shots to street snapshots and landscapes, portraits are also capable - basically for me it's the most usable FL. I wish Sony have made 24mm f1.8 with OSS for under $499 (or without OSS, since it's not necessary for that wide angle, for $399) - I bet it would have been bestseller.

What prime lenses can one buy used/new for under $600 around 24mm that are at least f1.8 and sharp?

Fujifilm FinePix X100 Sony RX1
