Hello 

I need some advice please.

I am looking to get the samyang 10mm f2.8 for my Fujifilm XT2 but here is my dilemma.

I also have a Canon 5D Mark 3 and I'm thinking if I get the Canon version of the lens and not the X mount I can then get an adapter and use it on both. 

So will using the Canon version on the Fuji give me any less image quality than getting the dedicated Fuji version or can I kill 2 birds with 1 stone with no problems.

Thanks

Good point. 10mm on a full frame would be insanely wide.

Not really that. The image circle of an APS lens would not cover a full frame so the image would be heavily vignetted. You can use FF lenses on APS though because the opposite is true and APS would only use the central area of the FF lens - the best part. The big guns have long had primes and zooms in the extreme wide angle 10-12mm range.

Those WAs are too much for me though. It took me a while to be comfortable with the Fuji 14mm when there was no 16mm (24mm equiv) but now I love it.

You should notice no loss of image quality.

Your 10mm on Canon will be 15mm on Fuji.  That's about it.

I have 8mm Rokinon with Fuji mount (so adapter not needed).  Thus 12mm on my XT1/XT2.  180 degree fish eye.  It's a blast to use.

I skipped wide angle lenses and got a fish eye for landscapes and architecture. fun is just about to begin.
