(I like shooting more than screwing, in this particular instance!)

Anybody know if the 16x9 .7X wide is slow, screwy screw-on or brisk, better bayonet?

As has been mentioned, screw-on. I leave the wide angle adapter on permanently, it gives a decently wide angle of view but is very prone to flaring. It needs to be shaded - which is a pity as there are no filter threads on the front at all - shameful omission. That said, the combo is so small that I forgive JVC (just this once).
