Re: Do I already have a wide angle lens?

As others have said, you have a moderate wide angle lens. I caution against the 8mm recommendation unless you like extreme distortion with extreme wide angle. The Olympus 9-18 lens is an option, but more expensive than what I am going to suggest you consider. I bought both items used on ebay for $380 total.

The combo consists of a Panasonic 14/2.5 lens with a DWM-GWC-1 Wide angle converter which  converts the 14mm to 11mm. While that seems like a small increase it is actually quite a bit more angle of view.

I have a thread that show the combo's results here.

The image below shows the 14mm portion of the 11mm capture. As you can see, is significantly wider. There is easily corrected distortion as you can see in the thread I linked to above.
