There's also the Samyang AF 18mm and 24mm primes.

Oooh, that Samyang 24 may be a good choice. I like that focal length better than 20 mm, and it's not much bigger than the 20 pancake.

I also see Samyang makes a small 35mm which reviews say is sharper than the 24.

These all vary more or less copy to copy.

Yeah, sometimes quality control isn't the greatest with lower-end lenses.
