Is 12mm wide enough?

I had an opportunity to shoot with the Oly 9-18 once (Yosemite National Park - nice place to try out a lens). I didn't own it, but I was tempted to buy it afterwards.

Now, all these months later, I've decided to invest a bit more in my m4/3 kit and am considering a wide option. (BTW, I shoot with a PEN and am mostly a landscape shooter.)

Looking back at my pictures from Yosemite, I was surprised to see how many were shot at 12mm and above (80%)... so that made me wonder if I'd do well to get the 12mm Oly instead. I've read such good things about it.

I'm wondering if any landscape shooters here have contemplated this question and ended up with the 12mm. Happy with your decision? Wide enough?
