Well done and thanks for the education. I also was under the impression that 9mm would be horribly distorted. Appreciate.I'll accept.
Here is shot of the entrance to a university. The building is very close to the entrance gates. This first shot was taken at 26mm, so you could imagine what it would look like at 50mm.

The building would totally overwhelm the arch.
Instead, I wanted the arch to frame the building, so I employed a Laowa 9mm 5.6 lens on a Sony a7rIII fullframe camera.

Here is the image after a little cleanup and cropping that I ended up using.

So for me, a 9mm has a place in my kit especially if Canon can produce one with much better edge sharpness.
