    as the title says....

    I know there's the Panasonic wide angle converter for P14 pancake, but having seen the results, I'm not sure if it's the converter or P14 there are tons of distortion and CA, sharpness isn't good towards the edges. Has anyone tried that or other converters on P14-42II that you'd recommend? Thanks.

    The Panasonic DMW-GWC1 does not work with the P14-42 II. I don't have the GWC1 any more, but when I did I tried it on the P14-42 II on my daughter's camera. It was designed for use on either the 14mm or the 14-42mm PZ lenses. Sorry I can't help with what does work though.

    What about the Olympus 9mm Body Cap lens instead??
    It's also cheaper...
