This UR-E22 adapter, as advertised, is solely for use with the WC-E75A wide-angle lens attachment. It has an oddball 50mm thread on the front, so you can't adapt it to any filter thread, which I feel is a dumb and inconsiderate oversight on Nikon's part; 49mm or 52mm threads would have been nice. Its predecessor, the UR-E21 (for the Coolpix P6000), was metal, with 43mm threads, which is an obscure filter size, with very few filter choices. However, via a 43mm to 46mm adapter ring, you could use 46mm filters, which are available in many high-quality choices. Via appropriate rings, you could also adapt 49mm or 52mm filters.
As for whining about the plastic construction, keep in mind that the UR-E22 attaches to the P7000/P7100 via a bayonet mount, rather than the threaded screw mount of the UR-E21. If the UR-E22 were made of metal, requiring a much more complex bayonet fitting, then many would be whining about the much higher price. These are, after all, point-and-shoot cameras, not pro-grade DSLRs, so realistic compromises have to be made. Bottom line, it does what it's designed to do, no more, no less.
Maybe because the English language or because I already used other ADAPTER RINGS in other point-and-shoot brands, I was let to assume this product would be to, besides protecting the lenses, adapt some filter I use with my D90, what is not the case. It is to adapt the Wide Converter WC-E75A. The product description has no info about it and should. The name of the product should be changed to "UR-E22 ADAPTER RING TO BE USED WITH WC-E75A ONLY". So, considering my primary intention, the use of filters, what I payed to this product was the same as throwing the value to the trash as I have no possibility to use it as I was let to imagine.
