I have the 14 and 18 mm Fujinon lenses. When I had Canon gear I used a Sigma 12-24 (a very good lens) on full frame and 1.6 crop but it actually did not get used very much and hence I'm not going for the 10-24. Effective 21 mm is about as wide as I reckon to go. I do have an manual Samyang 16 mm for my Pentax weatherproof kit and could use it on the X-E2 but it's large and heavy and one can always crop a 14 mm shot.

I found the same thing when shooting my 12-24 (FF equiv 16-36mm) Tokina f4 on my Nikon D300(half frame). I often ended up at 14mm widest.

Having said that, I now shoot a 18mm lens on my D800e but I often find I crop to 21mm. Having the option is good though otherwise stitching beckons.

Just got the 18mm Fuji f2. Love it. It compliments my 27mm nicely as an about town, smallish, light weight kit with the X-E2.
