Re: To augment kit zoom, either faster or wider FOV

Cheaper alternatives include the Samyang/Bower/Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye (and learning to use "defishing" software for some shots), and the Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 with DMW-GWC1 wide angle converter, which gives an effective focal length of about 11mm. I use the 14/GWC1 combo (usually at f/5.6 for maximum sharpness), and have been surprised at the image quality. There is some CA and barrel distortion to correct, but this is easily done.

Interesting, I just got the Ricoh .75x adapter for my GR. It gives me 21mm equivalent FOV and it's very sharp. Unfortunately when I tried it on the 12/2, it vignettes. I could try it on a Lumix 14/2.5.

My nickel, since the penny is now discontinued...
