    I'm looking for a fisheye or wide angle lens for my panasonic fz20. Does anyone have any experience with these types of lenses in general (not necessarily the panasonic cameras).

    Out of these, which would you suggest? (All of these fit the fz20 too with the right adapter).

    I can get the Olympus WCON-07 for $210 (AUS) here, or a Nikon FCE9 fisheye here for $235. There is more info about the nikon here

    Any help will be appreciated.

    In general, converter lenses are ok but not the prefered way to go. You don't get the same quality image as you do with a dedicated lens. They are okay for average shooting, but you may have issues with sharpness.

    I don't have any experience with the specific ones you mention.
