Yes, genece is right about 3rd party add-on lenses. Don't waste your money or time on them.
First you have to buy an adaptor, you can find a PHAYEE adaptor on ebay, because the panasonic adaptor is poorly designed.
The PEMARAAL adaptor is also very good but a little more expensive.
The Phayee has a 62mm front thread so will need to choose a lens with a 62mm rear thread.
The olympus lenses
TCON 14B........TELEPHOTO.........1..4X coversion
WCON 08B.......WIDEANGLE.........0.8X conversion
both these will work with the Phayee adaptor.

You may also look into the RAYNOX lenses, but for them you will have to buy the RAYNOX ADAPTOR TUBE...... i think it is RT5264P.......i believe it has a front thread of 52mm.
lenses are
RAYNOX DCR 6600PRO.........WIDE ANGLE
RAYNOX DCR 1540 PRO.........TELEPHOTO
hope this helps
