I want to go wider than 14mm

The widest angle lens I have for my Olympus MFT cameras is the bottom end of my 14-42mm IIR kit lens.  My widest prime is my 17mm Oly f2.8.  I'd like to go wider.

Olympus makes a wide angle converter for my 14-42mm kit lens that makes it go to 11m.  It's only about $65.

Olympus makes a 12-50mm weatherproof kit lens, that's only $130 new.

The Oly 12mm prime is too expensive.  I'd buy a 12-40 f2.8 before I'd buy that.

There are several third party lenses, manual focus, from what I've seen, that are in the 7.5mm range, but I don't want a circular fish eye, just something wider than the 14mm I already have.

I would imagine most of my use of the lens would be walking around, daylight shots.

Any suggestions, of what are economical ways to go wider than 14mm?

Thanks in advance, for any help you might offer.
