That's going to be tough.

Add-on or accessory lenses are usually designed for a specific camera or class of cameras. So they are not adaptable over a wide range of cameras. Your most economical solution would probably be to acquire an inexpensive camera like the Panasonic ZR1 which has a nice 25mm lens on their 25mm to 200mm zoom range and costs $185.00.

So what you're saying is ... 38mm*0.7 = 26.6 mm is the lowest possible focal length this camera can achieve?

Might start looking at the return policy in that case ... I guess all good things are expensive.
