Depends what you mean by "popular"

This is RIDICULOUS .as I have said all majr companies  have one or more 24 and 28 mm FOV while they do not always have a 21mm. Zeiss has both . Only FUJI has 21mm instead of 24m for the Xpro 1 . NOW if this  correct , YES OR NO ?

When it comes to professional primes I think the real issue is that 24mm provides a bit more of a gap from 35mm, really much the same arguement as Vieri's point that the gap between 21mm and 28mm is significant enough to differentiate products.

The other important point you've both made is that prime lenses this wide while they do exist are obviously less common and I think thats because the demand for large appatures on ultra wide lenses is less. When you get this wide most of the market is landscape and architecture users who tend to preffer the versatility of zooms(unlelss primes offer tilt and shift functions) IMHO.
