Getting the right lens adapter thingy?
Apr 21, 2008

Hi all. I was recently given a Bower 0.38x wide-angle converter lens (link below), and have a minor problem. ( http://www.amazon.com/Bower-0-38x-Super-Angle-Macro/dp/B000GTNCJ6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1208807909&sr=8-2 )

I can't figure what kind of adapter I need in order to attach it to the end of my Nikon 18-200 VR (cam is the D80). It says it needs a 52mm thread, but the Nikon BR-3 certainly doesn't look like it would fit. ( http://www.amazon.com/Nikon-FPW00301-BR-3-Adapter-ring/dp/B00009R8RT/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1208810617&sr=8-2 )

The URE20 looks like it would fit, but it says it's for the Coolpix camera...

Anyone know what I'm looking for? Thanks.
