- I f I understand, you need Sony to M43 adapter + this sony focal reducer adapter = stacking, isn't it?

Oh very sorry, only very hastily read @ntblowz post! So when he said "14mm Panasonic pancake" I thought he meant the specific adapter for that. 

Anyway, even with the one he said, there is still no MFT to E mount adapter at all?! As you're using a screw on wide angle, direct onto the front of the lens. 

And the one I use is the Panasonic DMW-GWC1. But yup, the Sony VCL-ECU1 could achieve the same result in the end.

I have the Panasonic 8-18, and while I do love that lens and it’s sharpness for photos, it doesn’t really have the practical advantages for video you might think.  The autofocus is bad to the poi

You could try the Rokinon/Samyang 12mm f2. It's small, cheap, fast, and takes filters.

Sorry...typing mistake, I meant "but as my 12-60 already gets me so wide"...I would recommend that if possible you try the Leica 12-60 at a shop...you will be surprised at how wide 12 on the GH5 is. I

If you're looking to get ultra wide in a truly economical way, I've linked the SLRMagic 8mm below...at f4 but only $176 and no adapter needed....and it's tiny. You also don't need a Speedbooster....the mount is m4/3 already.
