    GH2 now, possible E-M5 or GH3 down the road.

    Landscapes only, no interiors, fast lens not needed.

    Want to be able to take long durations of moving water so filter compatibility is a must.

    I would just get the Panny 7-14mm but it can't take filters, bummer.

    The Oly 9-18mm may be ok but wish it were a bit wider like the Panny.

    Since I don't need auto focus for this perhaps an adapted lens would work?

    Ideas appreciated :)

    You won't find anything even as wide as the 9-18 in adaptable lenses except maybe in c-mount. Those are unlikely to fully cover the sensor. If you must have 7mm you'll need to work out some kind of filter holder for the front of the 7-14.

    I don't understand what a "landscape" lens is. I find that normal to long are great landscape lenses. Wides are OK. Most lenses can be fit with a ND filter.

    How about the 9-18 and the Rokinon fisheye as a combo?

    I agree that the 9-18mm is the best bet. You won't get any wider without a curved lens.

    Or maybe you could get a Cokin filter holder and manufacture something DIY to fit on your 7-14mm?

    With the Panny 7-14, you can just hold up rectangular filters in front of the front element.

    No fuss, no muss and usually much higher quality than screw ons.

    The choice is simple, the mZuiko 9-18. It can use a polarizer, filters for doing IR / or UV photograph, large rubber lens shades in case you want to shoot wide angle widow displays; it's very sharp, light weight and is very compact.
    Fantastic lens.
