Bayonet Mount Lens for HVX?

Please forgive my ignorance, but I need the benefit of someone else's' knowledge/experience.

Am considering getting a full-zoom-through W/A adapter (
16x9 Inc. 169-HDWC8X-HVX EXII 0.8x Wide Angle 169-HDWC8X-HVX B&H
) for my AG-HVX200P...NOT a 200A, but the one I'm leaning towards comes in a bayonet mount. I've only dealt with screw-on filters for the HVX. How can it accommodate a bayonet mount? Does it fit in the grooves/slots for the lens shade? Or do I need to buy an additional piece of hardware? And will this work with the 200P?

Input/feedback appreciated.

Re: Bayonet Mount Lens for HVX?

Yes, the bayonet is the stock lens hood attachment. Far, far quicker and easier than a screw mount.

FWIW, I was never pleased with the effect of a .8x, simply because of how minimal the difference is. Even though it's not zoom-through, I prefer my .6x wide angle adapter. It's effective enough within the ranges of situations where I'd use it.
