Hi 'Foocando',

The WC-E68 was originally developed for the Nikon Coolpix 5000. It has a 46 mm thread and its shortening factor is 0.68x.

The X10/X20 has a 40 mm thread, not 40.5! It's an old Canon thread and you really have to search E-Bay to find a seller for the step-up ring.

THe WC-E68 can also be used on the X100/X100s, but that camera has a thread of 49 mm and it may need an extra distance ring of 2-4 mm thickness to give optimal sharpness in the corners. It can be an old UV filter with its glass removed. This you screw between step-down ring and camera (if it was a 49 mm filter) or between WA converter and step-down ring (if it was a 46 mm filter).

I have used this WA converter with a 52 mm step-down ring on a Nikon 24 mm lens on my D200...

Regards,
