Ultra wide for landscapes

Have a Nikon Z7, mostly use the 24-70 F4 with a bias towards wider angles on that lens.

Also have a 20 mm F1.8 which I can use with the FTZ adapter.

Nikon is doing a sale on lenses, including the 14-30 F4 lens.

Hadn't really thought about that lens so bring to see what it would provide that I don't already have for landscapes and architecture.

Mostly it would be in the 14 to about 22 mm range.

One one of my trips last year, I went to Orvieto and the cathedral there, can't easily be captured in one shot especially the facade.

I tried handholding multiple shots for stitching and you still are so close that there's all kinds of parallax errors.

I don't know if a 14 mm would have been able to capture the whole facade from approximately 100 meters away.  You can't get further without having the view of the facade obstructed by other buildings.

Even if I could, I am guessing at the wide end, there would be some distortion.

So who's regularly shooting wider than 24 mm?  Were ultra WA glass worth the investment?
