    Hi

    for those who may be considering this adapter I just thought I'd let you know that it recently got a bit better.

    I have been meaning to write a post on this for a few months now, but have just got to it this (rainy) saturday.

    Essentially the change is a small but welcome addition of a lens cap. The fitting of the mounting ring (to allow the GWC-1 to come on and come off) meant that previously with that bayonet ring on the front thread that you could not put a lens cap on. The later releases of the GWC-1 come with a lens cap!

    And a quick and dirty compare of the newly acquired pair shows to me that the resolutions are what they were
