Best ultra wide lens for GH4!

What would be the best ultra wide non-fisheye lens for GH4!?

it should be around 16mm to 24mm (Full frame size)...wider the better!

10mm m/43 from SLRmagic seemed nice! I have a Metabones Speedbooster for Nikon lenses so best i have found is Rokinon 10mm Cine lens. I haven't found anything wide and fast from Nikon vintage lenses. What have i miss? Any other ideas with other metabones adapters?

Budget matters, but what about if it wouldn't :)

I'm using a Tamron 1/2" 4-12mm F/1.2 CCTV lens on a GH3.
I modified a Cmount to M 4/3 adapter to mount the lens.
Taking the crop factor of Ex. Tele Converter into account, I end up with, effectively, a 10-31mm F/1.2 lens for approx. $100 (BH photo) plus the adapter.

I'd definitely go with the Rokinon 10mm T3.1 Cine lens, and mount it to your Speedbooster. That'll give the equivalent of a 7.2mm f/2, which really can't be beat. It's sharp enough wide open to make it a good lens for low-light shooting, and cleans up nicely around the corners as you stop it down past F/4. Plus you get the added benefit of geared focus and (stopless) aperture rings.

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 on RJ Lens Turbo (Nikon G to m4/3 mount) is what I use on my hacked Panasonic GH1, you're getting a very fast (f/2!) and very wide (roughly 15mm on so called "full frame") lens for what is a relative affordable price!

I purchased my RJ Lens Turbo via here:

I got on the SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 volunteer program and loved the lens.

This this video there are some low light shots at ISO 400 and at T5.6 (I think) but the Aperture definitely wasn't wide open.
