1. Buy used.

2. Sigma 19mm.

(If you want wider, consider the somewhat more expensive Panasonic 14mm f2.5. I have the olympus 17mm f2.8, which is not as sharp as either of the above but focuses very close, has nice contrast and color rendition, and is considerably cheaper than the f1.8 version for the 35mm equivalent field of view.)
