Wide angle lens for Pen-F. Rokinon 12mm or Panny 12-32?

Hello!

I'm looking to get a wide angle lens (12mm and thereabouts) on a budget of around 300$ for my Pen-F. I'd like to keep the whole package small and portable. I did some research and it looks like the Rokinon 12mm prime and the Panasonic 12-32mm pancake zoom are within my budget limit and both quite popular.

I'm torn between which one of the two to get for wide landscapes. The Rokinon is a prime fixed at 12mm with very good image quality and the Panny is a very good kit lens plus its a pancake and the size is perfect on a Pen-F.

I can't decide! Suggestions?
