Cheap, compact, light(ish) way of achieving very wide angle, with
pretty good results after debarrelising. I didn't buy mine for the FE
effect. So you're right in a way - but that's the whole point (for
me).

Ok if it's being used as a cheap wide angle then that makes a lot of
sense.
Now if money was not an issue would you stick to a good wide angle
lens as oppose to this lens and corrections in pp?

well, in fact I do have a 12-24. And the results are better, particularly near the edges. But the smaller size of the Zenitar sometimes makes it a real option if I'm trying to keep the weight and bulk down. The DA14 is another possibility of course, but, again, a lot more expensive than the Z.
