    I'm considering the W/A as well. I hope it's good.

    Curious to see how does it compare to Sony WA conversion lenses that fits 14/2.5 perfectly, and little cheaper.

    I wonder If the wide angle would attach to the Oly 12mm. They're both 46mm threads. And that would give the 12mm an effect focal length of 19.5mm instead of 24.

    To my understanding it has nothing to do with the lens thread, it fits around the outside of the lens. The pany 20/1.7 is also a 46mm thread but it too will not suite. In this case it's about lens diameter.

    I'm going to wait for user reviews and image samples/comparisons before I buy, if all pans out and IQ is maintained (wishful thinking??) I'd gladly pay $140 or so for a fast AF native 10mm/f2.5 :)

    Hey had much chance to use it ?
    How's the IQ ?

    I'd like to think that Panasonic will nail this both in quality of optics and design/fit.

    Hope they are good quality, as they are all more than the Olympus equivalents except the fisheye.
