Wide angle lens for F335

I am about to purchase a PDW F335 and lens. I need a wide angle lens and can't decide between the Canon KH13x4.5 and the Fujinon XS13x3.3. Has anybody had any experience with either lens and what are your thoughts?

I use the Fujinon. Like the picture, the extreme wideness, the speed of the motor...
No complaints sofar exept sometimes a little vignetting in the widest angle with a fully open aperture.

The Canon seems a little less expensive. It wasn't at the market when we bought our set.

Have you read this article?

Fuji is a nice lens. Very wide, very good.

Canon

I have the canon and love it. I was worried about which lens and if it was enough telephoto etc. It is a great lens with great fit and finish (like most canon lenses)
You can't go wrong here, but the canon is really, really nice. Wide as can be...

It would be great if they also had a 2x extender version of this lens.
