    You will see a silver ring around the base of the lense. At the bottom of it, there is a small button. Press the small, button, turn the ring and it will come off.

    Once you have done this, it is obvious how the adaptor fits.

    Thanks for repling, i tried that but the LA-DC52B adapter i have (Sonia Brand) does not seem to fit, i have a feeling they have confused it with the G5 adapter - do you know if they have the same code?

    No, it was a different one -we have both A40 & A80.

    But the A40 has been sent back & they are picking up all postage costs etc so all is well in the end.
