Have you considered using your FE 35mm lens for panorama shots (stacked as well as sideways), stitching them together with PTGui Pro software? I've used this technique to get an entire scene in one frame without lens distortions of any sort. Something to bear in mind: you'll end up with some very large image files!

Actually, as I found with the NEX-6, panoramas of interiors  - even shot vertically - bend diagonal structures unacceptably. You need a real wide angle.

As soon as I have time this week, I will test and post my 17mm f3.5 Tokina AT-X Pro. Big, but smaller than the 14mm Samyang. Full frame - but I have never used it except on my old D70 10 years ago, when it was much superior to my 20mm f2.8 Nikkor AF, even on APS-C. A few interior shots with it looked wide open looked promising.
