Was available a few years back

Panasonic had a product called DMC-GWC1, which was a wide angle converter for their 14mm prime and 14-42 pancake powerzoom. I believe the result was something like 10.5-32mm zoom. Something along those lines.

Of course Panasonic being Panasonic, they soon lost interest in selling that to people, and the only way to get for the past couple of years is to stalk ebay for a few weeks in hopes it pops up (quite often those offered for sale are missing adapter ring or two needed to actually use it, though).

But yes, a kit zoom starting at around 10mm would be nice for an affordable camera aimed at vloggers, where a wider angle comes useful.

But for me, I want the 8-25 PRO that I hope will come next year. If it's of similar quality and bulk like the excellent 12-45, all the better.
