Is there a wide angle lens available for the Vixia HF R52?

Searching online, I can find wide angle lenses foe practically every Canon camcorder ... except the one I just bought, the Vixia HF R52. Is there a wide angle lens available for this model? I find them for the R62 and R72, also for the R500, 600, etc. Just Not the R52. I'm baffled.

You can't find one because it doesn't have a filter thread (Filter Diameter:Not Supported)

with which to mount a wide angle lens.  The HF R62 and HF R72 have a 43mm filter thread.

OH wow ... good to know. The odd thing is I did find a listing for an NC Digital wide angle lens supposedly for the HF R52 [Removed link per Community Guidelines], retailing for around $200 (!) but the Amazon link shows as "currently unavailable." I wonder what that is then. Ugh. Hope I didn't make an expensive mistake. Thanks for the reply.
