Thanks to member Captura for revealing that certain Panasonic conversion lenses fit right onto the Sigma 30 and Sigma 19. Two ultra-wide Lumix UW conversion lenses (CWC1 and LW46, both x 0.75) screw right onto the 46mm threads of either Sigma lens. I have the LW46, which was actually the predecessor of the CWC1. Price was about $125 like new used through Amazon.

Hi Runnicle,

While scanning for LW46 info, I found this at Amazon:   ($29.99 + free shipping)

Looks like a low-cost fisheye conversion lens that may work with the Sigma lenses. But it doesn't appear to be made by Panasonic (quality?). I already have a Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens, so probably don't need this one too.  Here's the link:

Thanks for the field-of-view comparison photos.  Perhaps you could add a fisheye view too?
