Does the W/A Nikon WC-E68 directly fit...

...Or would I need an adapter?

I'm planning to purchase this W/A lens for my HM100.
Can it be screwed directly on the 46mm mount of the camera or would I need any adapters?

I would appreciate a helping answer....

Best regards from Holland

It does fit without adapter

Just bought the WA Nikon WC-E68 and found out that it directly fits!

I have one and it's okay with [main] lens at widest setting, but zoom in and through the adaptor and it's pants. see post 48 here:

I use my HM-100 with the JVC .7x wide angle permanently attached.

Hi all, can anyone else verify that this Nikon WC-E68 wide angle converter is a good fit with the JVC GY HM100 without any adaptor rings?
I'm based in Germany and it seems they cost a fortune here so thinking of buying this one from the U.S: eBay: Neue und gebrauchte Elektronikartikel, Autos, Kleidung, Sammlerst?cke, Sportartikel und mehr ? alles zu g?nstigen Preisen
Is that the right one? I want to make sure it is truly going to fit and be effective because I probably can't return it if it isn't right.

@Steve Cottrell, have you worked out any tricks to get it to focus when zoomed?

Does anyone else have this same focus problem mentioned by Steve?

Lastly, if you can suggest any other lenses that definitely fit and are good are cheap, then please let me know.

Thanks,
Kirsty
