can anyone recommend a good wide angle lens to go with my 20mm or the kit lens for my G2?
Panasonic 7-14mm is a really good wide angle lens.
Sorry..I meant one of the adapters that can attach to the front of the lens.
Raynox is considered by many to be the best of the conversion lens makers. I have not used any of their lenses however. Also you might find one from one of the Japanese camera brands. I know Nikon makes them for some of their high-end P&S cameras. If the thread size is the same as yours it would fit. If the thread size is a bit bigger you could use a step-up ring. I would avoid using a lens that is smaller in size as it would almost certainly vignette. Keep in mind these are still $100+.
if you are spending over $ 100+,.. FYI the Panasonic 14mm 2.5 native lens
is only $ 200 us. may be a option .
That's no wider than the kit lens.
An Olympus 14-42 + W-Con P01 gets you to 11mm for ~$200. I'm sure there are generic wide-angle converters that will work too, but I've not personally tried any of those.
