Okay, I have a quick question.

The panasonic FZ7 camera came a lens hood and lens hood adapter.

The lens hood appears to have a 52mm ring on it. Is there any reason if I want to buy a filter or two that I should specifically buy a lens adapter for the FZ7 (which will put a 55mm ring on it) versus just using the lens hood adapter (and going with a 52mm ring filter)?

I have had a UV filter with the hood adapter, and I haven't had any problems. Is there anything the a specifc "lens adapter" will allow or provide (or prevent) that the hood adapter won't? Or is it just trying to get more money, saying that I have to buy a lens adapter instead of using the hood adapter? If I end up buying some add-on lenses (like a wide angle or telephoto) will they work with the hood adapter (assuming they have a 52mm ring) or would I need to get the lens adapter to have them work correctly?

The lens hood adapter works greatif you are only using it for the hood orfilters. If you ever get a tele convertor or wide angle convertor, you will need to get theDMW-LA2 from Panasonic or the Pemaraal lens adapter. The plastic lens hood adapter isn't strong enough to take the added weight of conversion lenses.
