I know this question has been asked before, but I can't find it

(I might even have asked it myself!)

I really love the XF14mm, but I can't afford it.

I bought a Helios 44mm and I really love it.

So... I've been thinking of buying a legacy m42 lens to use as a wide angle. But, when I look at them, I can't quite figure out if I can use any of them in the way I want (or whether it's wise).

The XF14mm is listed as equivalent to 21mm on a 35mm camera. So I was thinking of getting a lens somewhere along those lines, but then I thought that, since it's a crop, it would actually work in the other direction: that is, if I bought a legacy 21mm lens, the Fuji crop would turn it into a 35mm field of view.

By this logic, I should be looking for something like an 8- or 9-mm lens in 35mm format. But those are very, very few and far between.

Can someone recommend something to me?
