Summary: Very hard to find just the right superlatives. I bought this shortly after I bought my Lumix. While it's always inconvenient to take the time to screw on a supplementary lens and change the software settings to reflect that it's in place, especially because this is a one-purpose lens which generally...
Summary: The LX-3 is just the best little camera I have ever owned. The Leica lens is the key to its performance. Add the DMW-LW46, and you have the finest travel camera..ever! I just returned from a trip through Napa/Sonoma in California.
Summary: First, I got a great deal on this lens, which is otherwise pretty pricey. One had better be into wide-angle to justify the price. But I got a great deal through Amazon, and so thank them for that. When I got it screwed onto my DMC-3 I was pretty knocked out by the truly wide-angle view.
Summary: I sell Real Estate which is why I bought the Lumix LX3 camera, for it's wide breadth of view. This great little lens takes that width one step further without too much barreling or distortion. I am very happy with this great little lens!
Summary: I had previously bought the extension tube to use a filter on my camera which is the Leica D-Lux 4, the teutonic twin of the Panasonic model. The next step was this wide angle accessory lens which give you the equivalent of an 18mm lens. It's a high quality piece of glass for a fine camera.
Summary: This little wide angle conversion lens cost me approx. $160 plus $20 for the screw on barrel. I have taken it to Havana, Cuba and taken some amazing photos with it. It is tack sharp and such an inexpensive addition to an already brilliant little camera that I would say it is an absolute must have...
Nice conversion lens, but a bit of a hassle to set up & use

Summary: Yes, it's nice to get even more landscape in photos than the 24mm wa that the camera can already take in. Happy with that aspect. But, taking the ring off the camera, screwing the conversion lens to that tube, and then the tube to the camera, then telling the camera via settings that you've put the...
