It is hard to say if it fits you. What kind of subject do you plan on shooting? Is 24mm wide enough for you? I am not aware of any official XZ-1 wide angle lens adapter. So chances are it won't live up to your expectation.

If 24mm is wide enough, there are existing cameras like Panasonic LX5/LX7. Canon S100 that does the job right out of the box.

Hey guys , I've been reading the forum for a while and it's time for my first topic.

I am in a need of a camera that can be easily converted into an ultra wide angle P&S and that led me to the XZ-1 : nice price/quality ratio , and I as far as I read so far you can atach wide angle converters on it with great succes.Only problem is that I am not sure exactly witch one to get as I dont want to spend a lot of money on it - - camera + WA around no more than 400-450 USD. I want to be pretty sure before I get the camera because I need it for a trip witch is 15 days ahead and I wont have time to get another one if this one doesnt suit my needs. I would be really thankfull if you can help me and that way persuade me to get this great camera!
