best second lens for GX1 (1st is 20mm pancake)

I have a Panasonic GX1 with a 20mm f/1.7 prime lens.

After a trip to the beach I realized that I need a wider angle lens for taking photos on trips.

Now a quick bit of background info, this is my first camera and I'm not looking to spend a fortune on glass.

I'm looking for a decently priced wide angle lens that preferably has the versatility to zoom in (so I don't need another lens).

14-42 is my best candidate right now because it's wide angle, can zoom, and is cheap.

14-45 is nice, but I don't know if I can justify the price difference against the 14-42.
14 or 14/42pz + wide angle converter is nice but a bit expensive altogether.

Are there any other third-party lens that I don't know about that m43 shooters are using?

Any and all suggestions/comments welcome! Thanks!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1
