Am looking out for an Oly A-200 teleconverter. The 28mm wide angle should be sufficient for my needs for now.
That's definitely light converter...
Although it suffers more from vignetting than Oly tcon-17

Also Raynox has one 1.54x converter which doesn't look to suffer much from it and is light and quite small.

And for size... Smaller camera size would mean always much worser controls...unless camera could read my mind.
Actually I bought batterypack (lower in page) for balancing external flash (+gives emergency AA capability) but I haven't taken it off since I attached it to camera because stabilizing effect is quite nice, grip from camera is still much more better and handstrap makes it more secure... that's one feature I would miss much now with other cameras.

You might want to check this page:
But actually if you think 0.8x gives equal fov than those 0.6x (or 0.66x) converters for unwide angle cameras.

Also Raynox has some fisheye converters:
And DCR-FE180 seems to work without fisheye effect when little zoomed, although weight is such that supporting converter is definitely necessary.

BTW, good processing can help much with higher ISOs
