The 12mm is only marginally wider than the 14mm, and the 14mm seems to be an optically outstanding performer, similar to Zeiss famous 21mm Distagon.

I'm thinking like you, but in the opposite direction - I feel the 14mm is only slightly wider than the 18-55 zoom and the Zeiss 12mm will therefore be a better choice...

We can put a number on the differences. FOV for APS sensor is

18mm - 76 degrees

14mm - 89 degrees (17% wider than 18mm)

12mm - 99 degrees (30% wider than 18mm)

Yes...for ultra-wide angle shooters such as myself, there is a HUGE difference between 12mm and 14mm.  I can't wait to see how the Zeiss performs, but likely I will try and hold off for the Fuji 10-24 as I want as wide as I can get.
