55mm lenses, WL or Extenders for Fuji

I just picked up a Fuji S7000 and now I'm interested in looking at the extenders and wideangles available. With the Fuji I can get a step down from its 58mm to 55mm. So it looks like I can go shopping for extras. Any recommendations? The fellow at the local London Drugs said that the Olympus WL and extenders were good. I'm not a still photographer so I don't really know what to look for except that it would be nice to have a wide angle.

By the way, I put up some pics on my site.

I did a search of relevant threads on dpreview.com and the consensus is that the Olympus teleconverter (1.7) and wideangle (.7) are good or better than the Fuji lenses but that they were basically comparable.

Instead of getting the Olympus, I picked up a Raynox WL .66. Serves me fine.

thanks for the updates. I've heard good thinks about the Raynox and Olympus lenses.
