Why are you limiting yourself to crazy expensive glass? (Though I love my 85mm PC-E T/S for product shots)

If it's good enough for MKBHD and DSLR Video Shooter, this should be good enough for most of us: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1165600-REG/venus_optics_laowa_15mm_f_4_macro.html

The Laowa lenses are an interesting offering. The 15mm shift/macro is very clever but the reviews I saw lauded its macro capabilities and IQ unshifted. The price is attractive though. Another lens they make is the 12mm f 2.8 but that is about $950.

Sigma's latest 12-24 Art lens is $1500. All are cheaper than the Canon offerings with the Sigma available in Nikon mount.
