    I'm looking for a very small (thin) lens to use when my 12-60 Leica zoom is not wide enough - ideas?

    A pancake ultrawide? It's not really a thing. The only lens that fits is the Olympus 9mm F8 body cap, which is a sort-of fisheye manual focus "toy" type lens.

    Other options that are small-ish:
    Lawoa 7.5mm 2.0 UWA
    Samyang 7.5mm 3.5 fisheye
    Olympus 9-18mm 4-5.6 UWA zoom
    Panasonic 14mm 2.5 with wide angle adaptor, which makes the lens over twice as long and gives about an 11mm FOV, which won't really be much of a difference to 12mm

    @EarthQuake@EarthQuake is correct. There is also the Kowa lenses, but they are very much not pancake.

    To get wider than 10mm is going to be the aforementioned lenses or the wide zooms, p7-14, p8-18, o7-14, o9-18. None are small, but the o9-18 is the smallest.

    any others?

    Sorry, I mistyped - wider than 12.

    I think all of the options for wider than 12 have been listed. If you want exactly 10mm the only option is a Rokinon 10mm 2.8. Again, it is not a pancake. There is also the Voightlander 10.5 0.95 lens that we forgot to mention previously.

    Lumix 14/2.5 with fisheye conversion lens. Like the afro mentioned combo, this combo will not be slim when mounted. But it can be slim enough when the two pieces are carried separately.
    The Lumix 14 goes everywhere with me in a slim belt pouch, mounted to my E- P5/VF-4. For a while I carried the fisheye adapter in the pouch, too.
    But to go really, truly slim, I would get the Olympus 9mm body cap fisheye and, if desired, defish in post-processing.

    Thx - I am not looking for a pancake but rarely refuse pancakes when offered.
