    I put a mean machine together for my GRD that I am going to test out this weekend. We will see how it goes. The last bit just arrived today.

    Heres my modest contribution:

    GX100 with Konica Minolta ZCW-200 0.7x wide converter. It screws straight onto the adapter tube and gives a 17mm fisheye fov - no vignetting.

    Lacks the physical presence of the LX2 and WC-E68 though!

    Thatīs a nice combo you have there. The reason I went for the Nikon, even when thereīs plenty of converters that will provide a wider angle, is mainly the distortion, very low. Interesting that the KM converter shows no vignetting, considering it gives a much wider coverage than the Nikon, very nice..I, myself am in the market for a GX100, lovelly camera!!

    Best, Erik.
