    Is it possible to use the Hoya filter from my old ae100 in my new ae700 if I get an adapter to make it fit into the new PJ?

    Where, other than the obvious Jessops, might I get hold of one of these things for a reasonable price if it exists.

    I thought they screwed right on to the focus ring? Was the AE100 lens a smaller diameter?

    I believe the AE100 - AE500 were 55mm and as we now know the AE700 is 77mm

    OK, knowing that I'd guess an adaptor is impossible - if the old filter is smaller then it's just going to block the image being projected out of the larger lens, surely?

    Actually, you can get such adapters - and if the size you need isn't available, you can use a combination of two (or more). As the filter is smaller than the recommended size, you may need to watch for vignetting (darkening at the corners), especially as the zoom approaches maximum (but you can try this yourself simply by sellotaping the filter roughly in place as a test before buying any adapters)
