Default Coolpix 5000 accessories

I recently purchased Nikon's Coolpix 5000 digital camera and have since been looking for a number of accessories but have not been successful in locating any. These accessories include filters, rings to attach them, viewer hood, and the 2x telephoto lens and its attachment ring.

I contacted a number of retailers and have not found any who have these in stock. Are these accessories available in the market at all? I would appreciate any information as to which store I can contact.

Another question is which ring would I need to attach these coolpix filters to the camera.

Thanks.

Default Lack of Nikon 5000 Adapter rings

The only assessory for the Nikon 5000 the is readily available is the ENL1 battery. Probably because it is used by other models. I ordered a TC-E3 Tele-photo adapter and a UR-6 step-down ring in February. The adapter came after 8 weeks but the step-down ring is still on order. I ordered from RITZ camera. I've complained to RITZ and Nikon but no real response. I imagine they (Nikon) really want to sell the 5700 now which ahs a buit in tele photo lens that's more powerful than the 5000 with the tele-photo adapter

Louise,

I checked and every site is out of stock for the Nikon 5000 adpater ring accessories, without them you can't use the tele-photo converter lens that are available. I have a lens that I paid $265.00 for in February, I still don't have the adapter ring I ordered at the same time.

Nikon service to US digicam users seems abominable. I don't know how delivery is Japan, but a search on BestGate
http://www.bestgate.net/
(a Japanese 'net commerce pricing site)
located the UR-E6 adapter ring at several shops for JPY 1,200--1,400 (list is JPY 1,500). Only one specifically stated that a special order has to be made.
I don't think that you will have much luck putting in overseas orders to any Japanese retailer.

A full list of Coolpix 5000 accessories is available at
http://www.nikon-image.com/jpn/produ..._accessory.htm

You can feed the page to a translation site.

i couldn't find any accessories for my CP5000 either. till i bought a "Coolfix Variable Adapter" from this site. he's not cheap, but it works wonderful. Plus with the "Coolfix Variable Adapter" i am able to use other accessories other than Nikon brand. For example, i can use Tiffen wide and tele photo converters (which are 1/2 the price of nikons and offer excellent image quality).

check out the site.
