Perspective question

The 12mm Oly is a very nice lens but I don't always want the perspective of a 12mm to get the FOV of a 24mm lens.

Help me with this one.  I do not understand your comment above.

How is the perspective of a 24 mm lens on a 1x sensor different from that of a 12 mm lens on a 2x sensor holding camera to subject distance constant?  Clearly the FOV is the same and the DOF is different.  My understanding of perspective is that it is simple geometry dictated by viewing position independent of lens.

Thanks for clarification.
