Buying advice: non-circular fisheye for Fuji XT3

Hi all

I'm looking for a non-circular fisheye lens for my Fujifilm XT3. I've narrow down the options to the Pergear 7.5 mm f2.8, 7Artisans 7.5 mm f2.8, and TTArtisans 7.5 mm f2.0. I'm interested in close-ups, so I've ruled out the Samyang 8mm f2.8 because of its relatively high minimum focus distance (around 30 cm vs 12 cm for the other three above).

I've found some interesting comparisons here and here. It seems that the 7Artisans is the sharpest, specially at the corners. The Pergear seems to be the best at close-ups and magnification, though, an important factor for me. The TTArtisans is one stop faster and allows the use of a back mounted ND filter, which are nice features but not for my intended use.

All of this considered, I'm leaning towards the Pergear, but I am very interested in hearing your opinions.

Fujifilm X-T3
