There is no conundrum

Today's wide-angle zooms generally outperform the fixed-focal-length wide-angle lenses of yester-year.

That's why there aren't a lot of fixed-focal-length wide-angle lenses available for DX: the zoom "penalty" is not that great. Most of the ones available for FX date back to the film era.

In any event, switching to Micro 4/3 does not solve the "problem". There's only about three or four true wide-angle non-zooms available for Micro 4/3 and as far as I know none of them outperform the Nikon 10-24 or Tokina 11-16 in any meaningful way.
