Nice unboxing video! Now that you have the whole package, are you going to investigate the whole wide angle thing again since the LX7 is 24mm, not 28mm? He he.

Oh, you're going to LOVE the custom white balance of the LX7, just two to three clicks to the right!

Yes
Not worth with any lens designed for 35mm
The lens is very wide and not very close to the glass
However for video am planning to shoot with the nauticam wet mate 85% of scenes
Wide angle lens is only for special occasions
Have spoken with a fellow lx7 nauticam peer and the best bet is the inon uwl-h100 however with dome would vignette
If you are looking for a fisheye option apparently there is an uwl05 lens that should work with g1x that has a larger lens this could be a better candidate
Personally I will not invest in any fisheye for the lx7 am good with a flat 100-110 lens

Looks like the UWL-h100 would work, and surprise that it cover much more than the Wet Mate:

According to my sources is more than 100 actually closer to 110
