Thanks everyone for your replies. I actually got the 37mm filter and tried a 'wide angle conversion lens' from ebay

( http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=lx7+conversion+lens&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313&_nkw=lx7+wide+lens&_sacat=0)

and it fit on my LX7 fine, but was useless because of severe 'tunnel effect' at wide angle. I had to zoom the camera in to get out of the tunnel effect which made the 'wide angle' aspect of the conversion lens pointless.

I realize I can use the Panorama mode for super wide angle photography, but I was hoping to get a wider conversion lens for taking super wide angle videos too. Oh well.
