    Wide angle converter

    Does anyone have experience with any wide converter on th X100, with decent quality? The X100 forum has one member using the DMW-L46 with some success.

    Thought about it, but wasn't sure if this causes indifferences with the metering (AF and AE).

    Could you provide a link to the samples?

    Here it is: http://www.x100forum.com/index.php?/...w-l46-on-x100/

    I have sent off for a step-up ring, and when that arrives I will use this wide-angle converter on my X10, and post samples if they are any good.

    The 40.5-46mm step-up ring only engages a fraction of a turn. But I was able to mount the Panasonic Lumix DMW-LW46 Wide Conversion Lens. The corners vignetted with the zoom on the X10 set at 28mm. The vignetting is visible even when the LW46 is held up to the lens with no interposing spacing a situation I should have noticed before sending off the for ring.
