After a not very successful purchase of a Panasonic TZ7 I have decided to keep my current camera and try to improve it. I currently have an Xacti HD1010 which I love, but the only thing that could improve it is a wider field of view. Currently its lens spec is the 35mm equivilent of 38-380 mm

I know that wide angle lenses are available, but the two that I have found are described as either 2X TELEPHOTO & 0.45X WIDE ANGLE W/ MACRO
or 0.5X Wide Angle & MACRO lens
I wasn't sure if I was allowed to post links to an auction, so I didn't. I can if anyone needs more information.
I undestand when something is described as 25mm that it is very wide and, but I don't undestand the 0.45 x or 0.50 x. Which is the better lens? I am not bothered by the macro ability, I simply want to get a wider angle.
What would either of thoses lenses give me in 35mm terms please? Also, would I still be able to use my full 10x zoom without any distortion?
Many thanks in advance.
