Ultrawide solution

I'd like to have a ultrawide lens in my kit (I already own the samyang fisheye, but I want a linear lens). The options are quite limited and I'd like a quality lens because recently I'm doing big prints. The panasonic 7-14 is about 950 euros and using filters with it is difficult; the olympus 9-18 is about 500 euros, but reviews are not so good. So I was thinking about buying a fuji x-e1 with the new samyang 12mm (for about €730) or a sony a6000 with the same lens (about €870).  The lens can mount filters and it seems to be quite sharp from f2.0 (which is useful for night skies shots). What do you think about this move?
