[Lens] Wide angle lens recommendation

I currently own an Olympus EVOLT E500 8MP Digital SLR with the following lenses:
    * Olympus Zuiko 14-45mm f3.5/5.6 lens
    * Olympus Zuiko 40-150mm f3.5/4.5

My wife has started a company doing home staging and needs to take photos of properties to bring home and use in planning what to do with the spaces. She also uses those photos, and photos she takes afterward, on her website and in marketing as before/after shots. Often the after shots will be used by realtors in the listings.

The widest lens we have is the 14mm (28mm equiv) and it just isn't cutting it. We're not able to get enough of the rooms into a single shot.

We'd like to avoid the look of a fish-eye lens in the resulting pic, and can't have the lens causing vignetting.

Can anyone recommend anything? I have looked through some of the Olympus lenses here and see a 12mm f2.8-4.0 and a 9-18mm f4.0-5.6 but I think both would require an adapter from the micro four thirds to my camera's four thirds system.

Thanks for any thoughts you can offer.

Jim

A very good lens for the price. Have used it for many interior and exterior real estate photos, and can highly recommend it.
