This is a good approach. I haven't tried to replicate the focal lengths so much as the IQ and the FOV options. I've covered 14 mm to 200 mm with 3 good zooms that have slightly different ranges than the Olympus. Now I need a lens for UWA that accepts filters. That's a tough nut to crack with different solutions in Nikon FX.

Like the 7-14 / 4, both the Nikon 14-24 / 2.8G and Tokina 16-28 / 2.8 cannot accept screw-in filters, but perhaps something like this DIY technique for the 7-14 / 4:

will work.

For the Nikon, you can use this

And they do it for the Olympus, too
