On my 602, and any others that I have seen, the adapter is larger than the housing of the lens. When you turn the camera on the lens extends inside the adapter tube, bringing the front element of the lens closer to the filter, or the converter lens. You are saying the 5000 functions differently than this? I believe the 5000 uses a different length adapter tube, but the way it functions is similar. Could you please clarify this as it seems that if the adapter tube on a 5000 is smaller than the lens housing as you stated, the lens would have to extend over the adapter tube when the camera was powered up. If this is as you state, I can see your genuine concern, as this could definitely create all sorts of functional issues with the camera!
