Will I regret not getting a UWA zoom?

I am currently in the process of setting up my kit for the EM5 and after struggling with the whole 9-18mm Oly v 7-14mm Panasonic thing I am leaning towards not buying either.

Instead I am contemplating getting the Rokinon 7.5mm Fisheye and a 14mm Panasonic instead, which collectively are cheaper than both options and seem to be very good value for money. I would likely be buying either UWA zoom for the wide end anyway and really question whether either of them are worth the money.

My question is: will I regret not going for one of the UWA rectilinear zooms and wish I had bought them instead of the FE and 14mm? Whatever I get will be in conjunction with a 25mm Pana, 45mm Oly, 12-50mm Oly and a 40-150mm Oly.

BTW any news of a prime UWA lens with a fixed focal length - I think that would probably sort me out?

Cheers
