Some options I would personally consider based on your needs:

Sony 20 f/1.8 FE - maybe too close to 24 for you? But amazing small lens with fast aperture useful for many things and for me I find 20mm the perfect focal length for the way I see ‘wide angle’ and I do not find it too close to 24mm.

i were to stretch my budget in this focal length (which i will not this time around), i would go with loxia 21mm instead. but as mentioned, i would like something wider.

Zeiss Batis 18mm - bulkier than the Samyang but better image quality.

batis 18mm is very tempting, but fails on size and budget.

Tamron 17-28mm - probably your best bet for best compromise and most versatility.

Sony Zeiss 16-35mm f/4 - I love mine but may be too big for the 5L?

it would fit, but i am not a fan. i would rather go for the tamron 17-28mm for the money.
