@enzo Cheap UWA for Fx? Samyang 14mm 2.8 :)
Yes jigs, kaso lang walang AF baka mabitin sya sa wedding shoot out. Sa landscape,you have all the time. At the same time hirap magcorrect ng moustache distortion. Alam mo paano? Gusto ko rin sana ng Samyang 14mm.

Nope, sir Retina. Not familiar with the moustache distortion. First time I've heard about it. Anyways, I thought the UWA would be for landscapes and wide angle environmental portraits. Anyways, I think enzo found a gem in his 16mm 2.8 prime :)
You can use it for landscape and if you are careful the distortion will not be prominent. The moustache malady is very obvious in architectural shots.There are times that you can't avoid shooting landscape with architecture so that made me hesitant to get one. Good luck to enzo and hope he will find his new "prime" satisfactory.

There is just one problem. You may not find it that sharp but it really depends if you are pixel peepers or OC....

Eventually you may buy a real UWA. I sold my 11-16 years ago so I don't have samples to show. As mentioned by @jigs10orio , the Samyang is a very reasonable and cheaper alternative.

Here are some articles that you may find helpful...a little bit of an OT:
