The Coolpix A with the Bower 52mm tube + a 52/49mm step down, vignettes using the Ricoh GW3. Holding the lens directly in front of the camera seems to work, but cannot confirm how well.

Yes you're right. I found out myself. Also way too much vignette with a Panasonic 0,79x wide angle converter lens

But as a surprise an adapter tube came with the Coolpix A (2nd hand, but as new with guaranty) In the meanwhile I already ordered an adapter tube myself.... Also have some metal step down rings.

I'm gonna cut about 3 or 4mm of the adapter tube(metal also) and glue(2seconds super glue) a metal step down on it. That way it must word with the GW3.

And I still have the original adapter tube with sun protection cab.

Hi there!  did this work?  I'm trying to decide between the coolpix a and the gr II and I prefer the coolpix,  but really want the wide angle adapter.  did you have success?  it would be absolutely amazing if it worked, I'd be over the moon!
