NiSi is probably best known for its filter systems, but it’s also branching into camera optics, as shown by this newly-announced 9mm f/2.8 prime lens. We don’t know too much about it yet, but NiSi has posted a video that shows the 9mm f/2.8 in action.

From what we’ve seen so far, this lens will be available in a number of mounts, including Sony E and (from the video) Fujifilm X. We believe there will also be an MFT version, though the smaller MFT sensor size means there are probably better ‘native’ ultra-wide lenses for these cameras.
