Anyone's experience with third party wide primes?

As part of gathering information I would like to know others experiences with third party wide angle prime lenses other than the Zenitar. The primes would have to less than 18 mm in focal length. I know this gets me close to fisheye in older film wide angle primes but I believe there were some 17, 16, 15 and lower ones made that did not have too much fisheye distortion. Anyone have knowledge??

The Peleng 8mm stinks.

The biggest loser lens I ever bought.
