Love it. Hate it!

from Undisclosed

Just purchased the wide adapter and had a chance to shoot about 1,000 pictures. It was used entirely on the 14mm F2.5 There is an adapter that threads on to the lens and then the converter is a twist lock on and off so you can quickly have either a 14mm or 11mm lens. THE BAD: Directions are vague as how the converter turns the same way to attach or remove. The construction is some type of plastic or nylon composition. After attaching the converter a few times, the tabs that lock it in position would not hold it tight and you could move the converter from side to side on the lens. After carrying my camera around for a couple of days, I noticed dust had actually got into the lens through the gap. The lens has a push on cover and it will not allow for a filter to protect the glass. THE GOOD: The optics are great and 11mm F2.5 is a wonderful combination. It is light weight. I made an "O"ring seal for the adapter using a small elastic band with a dab of silicone grease. I like the combination so much I am leaving it on the 14mm all the time!

Robert L  Will this fit the lumix vario G X 14-42?

Shopper  Will this work with the H-FS014042 lens? If not, is there an adaptor ring that can be used?
Chun-Chieh H  this DMW-GWC1 only works on H-PS14042 and H-H014
roger v  will this work with G3?
WILLIAM I  I bought the Panasonic DMW-GWC1 Wide Conversion Lens with Adaptor Ring for H-PS14042 and H-H014 in July and have used it frequently since then. The conversion lens mates ONLY with the Panasonic Lumix 14mm f/2.5 lens or the Panasonic Lumix 14 to 42mm-X Power Zoom via the two adapter rings, which are supplied as part of the kit. Both options will work perfectly on your G3. The GWC1 converts the 14mm f/2.5 into a 22mm f/2.5 lens (effective focal length in 35mm terms). Be sure you do not misplace either of the adapter rings, as they are the only way to mount the GWC1 to the lenses. My opinion is that, in combination with the 14mm f/2.5 pancake lens, this accessory represents a relatively inexpensive way to obtain the wide angle capability and lens speed approaching that of the much more expensive Olympus 12mm f/2.0 lens ($799), the closest equivalent MFT optic. Image quality is quite decent and the entire rig is still very compact, but you shouldn't expect this combo to equal the brilliant performance of the costly Olympus 12mm.
