Wide angle with close focusing?

Still trying to get my prime lens set up decided! So far I have the Panasonic 20mm which I'm keeping (didn't like it at first but it grew on me due to the image quality).

I really wanted the 12mm F2 Olympus and sent for it. The most disappointing thing about this for me was - my expectations of such a wide angle lens being able to focus close to get dramatic effect. It doesn't focus close enough. So not actually the focal length I want now.

Seems to be limited options for wide angle (wider than 17mm) in prime lenses. Can anyone recommend one that has close focusing abilities. I used to have a Canon EF 24mm years ago and got some stunning images by framing close and low.
