Kind of hard to give a response to this. Which Micro camera, the Cinema or Studio?
Given that 17.5mm is "normal" angle of view (AOV), how wide do you need?
What is the camera to subject distance, and how wide is the field of coverage, i.e. 12-ft wide area or?
The wider the lens, the larger the lens becomes. For compact size, the Olympus 12mm f/2.0 is nice and compact, as small as you are going to get. Next the Panasonic Leica 15mm is also fairly compact and at f/1.7, fairly fast., both have a 46mm filter ring size
Next, the SLR Magic 10mm is a very nice, low distortion lens, and fairly sharp when stopped down to f/2.0 to 5.6., but it is larger with a 77mm filter ring size.
Next, going up,in price and size are the wide Super 16mm lenses, likemthe Zeiss Super Speeds, which are 12mm and 9.5mm, both have an 80mm front element size, no filter ring thread. Also Elite and Illumina lenses came in 8mm for super wide shots.
