in that case I might see if I can get a look at the R1 wide adapter, probably equally rare out here, but which are 57mm, just 2mm narrow
I take it you meant 67mm. Since you already have it, I would try the R1 converter with as thin a step ring as you can get/make. At only 2mm thickness that will not be easy. You might try a large diameter rubber O-ring to give you some idea of the lens compatibility and go from there. The LW69 is most likely the best match, but~$500 is rather steep, IMO.

Indeed I meant 67mm Fred, I could machine a sep for a stepring, they are about the same price as the pana part DMW-LW69 so theres no saving in it.
