Panasonic G3 - ultra wide lens needed
Oct 21, 2012

I just purchased a G3 with double lens kit - got a nice deal now that the G5 is out.

I would like to add a lens that goes a bit wider than the stock 14-42mm, ideally 10-12mm.

I have looked at the options from Panasonic and Olympus, but don't want to spend several hundred on a lens that is not going to get a lot of use.

Looking at the Pany website, there is a conversion lens - DMW-GWC1 - that " Extends the focal length of wide-end from 14mm to 11mm by just attaching it to the front of the lens ". Link:

Does anyone have any experience with this 'lens'?

Any suggestions for relatively cheap alternatives appreciated.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5
