    In the long run, if you are going to buy a few filters for the FZ20, it's far cheaper to buy a 62mm thread adapter.........I got mine from ebay, via China, the seller also had some brand new cheap Pro Hoya filters.

    I initially discovered the option through the FZ20 forums on stevesdigicam site......well worth a visit, great photos.

    Smaller adapters are available, but the 52,55 and 58mm filters may be visible when on a wide angle.

    As well as fairly standard filters (which you may already own) you can then add additional lens such as the Olympus WCON-08B, and TCON-14B, I've also got a close-up macro lens kit.

    Unfortunately I am more enthusiastic about buying kit than actually using it..........
