    I've read some posts regarding this accessory, however not much useful. Asking for opinions from users: is it wise to spend a USD100 on this just to get 22 mm equivalent on kit lens or better save them for a used 9-18 mm? Thank you.

    I have the wcon-p01 and think it is very good. You say "just to get 22mm," but going down from 28 to 22 is A LOT at a wide angle focal length (actually the exact specs say 10.5mm, so you get 21 - I tested it vs a 9-18 set at 22 and the wcon was slightly wider). Even 2mm is pretty significant. It is nice to have this wide option so quickly available without a lens swap. It makes an excellent travel companion for the 14-42.
