The LX5 lwa52 wide angle adapter works great on the LX7.  You can't zoom, like you could with the LX5 but I only use the wide angle when I want wide angle.  Unless you are shooting a brick wall closeup (as others have on this site-for art?-boredom?), with landscape photography I can't see any distoration and I shot both the Lx5 and 7 at F2.0.  I would post samples but they were just personal testing and I deleting them.

As you imply, Andrew, why would anyone want to zoom with a wide angle accessory lens? The LX3 and LX5 had a Conversion Mode setting for use when the auxiliary lens was used.

Shots of brick walls are a convenient way to assess the extent of distortion produced with different lenses at different settings, and thereby to obtain the PP settings to correct shots of subjects in which the extent of distortion are less easy to discern.
