Lens attachments on the Z5

I have a couple Z1's... am curious if my wide-angle lenses would work on the Z5 should I decide to upgrade.

I think the Z1 and the Z5 are both 72 mm lenses. So a lot should be interchangeable.

Whew! Guess I wouldn't have to be selling off lenses one day then!
Thanks Greg!

It occured to me that there could be one problem. The Z5 standard lens is wider than the Z1. It could be possible that the WA lens could vignette on the Z5 at full wide.
