    Hey

    I am looking for a wide angle solution that is good in low light with the GH2. I considered the Olympus 12mm f2.0 but it just seems too expensive. I am leaning toward the Panasonic 14mm 2.5 but I was wondering how a wide angle adapter would work on my Panasonic Leica 25mm 1.4.

    What are some good adapters to use with the PL 25mm 1.4 that won't distort or degrade the image quality? What adapter would make it a 12mm or 14mm 1.4 wide angle lens?

    The Panasonic Leica 25mm 1.4 has a filter thread size of 46mm. Same filter thread size as the panasonic 20mm 1.7 and panasonic 14mm 2.5

    Thanks.

    All adapters degrade quality, it's merely a question of degree. You're asking for 0.5x WA converter. I don't know of any converter wider than 0.75X that is anything other than poor.

    The 14/2.5 is a much better option. Used, they can be found for ~$225. Given that the 14/2.5 lacks stabilization, the kit 14-42 may actually be more useful in low light, if your subjects are primarily stationary.
