    Lumix GF2

    Hi all, I have recently purchase GF2. I like the compact size especially bringing it to travel. But I am also interested in getting a new lens for it. Preferable wide angle lense. Anyone have any recommendation and advise for me? As I am realli an amature in these. Thanks all

    You might look at the Panasonic 7-14mm. That would be the one I would consider the most.

    Here are some examples shot by Smartwombat. There are really only two options in the m4/3rd mount. The other is the Olympus 9-18mm. You can also search Flickr for examples shot with both.
    E-P1 and 7-14

    The Panasonic wide angle is awesome! Just to say that if you can't afford it, the Olympus 9-18 is a great lens. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of mine when I first got it - and it is tiny! It's not "cheap" either - but less expensive than the other.

    Just a thought.

    And the front element on the 7-14 is so vulnerable, even with the built in non-removable lens hood.
    I'd advise you to always use the lens cap on the 7-14
