Which ultrawide ?

Which is the best glass ... Da 15mm, 8-16mm, or one of the 10-20mm's ? My camera is a Pentax k-5. My only problem with purchasing the da 15mm is that I have a da 17-70mm which does a fine job ( between 17-40mm ) ... Or even possibly going with the Pentax 10-17mm FE . If you need to know my intent and interest will be abstract/Fine Art photography.
Thank you,Tim !

Personally speaking, fixed focal length lenses are in most cases sharper and faster than zoom lenses. If you are looking for a wide sharp lens, it would be the way to go.
