Is there such a thing .....?

.... as a legacy 9,10, or 11mm lens which will adapt for m4/3?

I have the Micro 9-18, which is good, but when I shoot wide I often want a wider maximum aperture than f4. And what I call wide, is less than 11mm. OK, 12mm at a push.

Oh, and I'd like it to be affordable, too!

Oooh, 11mm on film - would be a megawide. The widest half sensible lens from the film days were - erm- 15mm???

You could get an 8mm Peleng but I understand its rather fishy, if you see what I mean. Anyone else have a suggestion?

I've seen a few 10mm Schneider-Kreuznach intended for cine use on Ebay. Don't know if they're a viable option?

Yes I guess so. It depends on the cine film format and the rear registration distance. As we are talking m4/3 here, then the world is more of your oyster than it would be for a DSLR mount...
