We are in the same boat. SO you didn't regret your decision getting 9mm while selling 14mm for it? On a side note i have 23mm and 56mm from Fuji as well

Yes i also feeling that 14mm is not wide enough.

I checked your insta. Good photos there but since i have an action block i can't like them. Just want to say you have great portraits. But i couldn't find wide shots made with 9mm. May be you are cropping them?

14 is just too safe and ordinary, it a good focal length to some but if I am shooting wide angle I want it very wide.

These are taken with the Laowa, and I have corrected the distortions a bit since they are portrait photos, I don't want the proportion to be too weird.

And without Laowa I don't think I can captured this shot below.
