The Panasonic DMW-GWC1 Wide Conversion Lens increases the magnification by 0.79X. When attaching this lens to the LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 14-42 mm/F3.5-5.6 ASPH/POWER O.I.S. (H-PS14042) or LUMIX G 14 mm/F2.5 ASPH (H-H014), it extends the focal length of the wide-end from 14 mm to 11 mm (35 mm camera equivalent: 28 mm to 22 mm)2. This is helpful for shooting everything from dynamic landscapes to indoor group portraits.

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!
