Wide angle for vacation; Greece

Me and my wife are going to Greece this summer and I would like to prepare my photo equipment for the trip.

I sold my X-M1 and the 16-50mm kit lens due to upgrading to X-pro 2 and 35mm F2, but I would like a wide angle for the trip.

I'm mainly interested in the historic monuments, buildings and generally documenting the vacation.

I'm torn between the Fujifilm 10-24mm (can get a used copy for 770$) and the Samyang 12mm, with the latter being half the price and faster. Will the OIS in the 10-24mm make up for the 2 stop difference?

Is the 2mm in focal length worth it or can I simply move a feet back to get the "same" shot with the 12mm?
