Olympus made a series of tele and wide converters, like the 1.3 I posted earlier. The Oly lenses are decent glass, much better in my opinion than the currently available Chinese examples, the are multicoated....

The Oly WCON-07 worked well for me on the old FZ50 which had a wide-est of maybe 28mm equiv (I forget) but I don't recall vignetting as happens when it's connected to the FZ200 with a 55mm to 52mm step down ring.  It's BIG and HEAVY and requires careful handling.  My opinion is for the small gain in angle of view it's not worth the hassle.
