I'm coming back to photography and decided to jump right into digital. I just got new Fuji E550 that I really like, but would like to add telephoto and WA lenses. Tiffen Megaplus looks OK (not too expansive and not an obvious junk) and could be mounted right on 43mm Fuji adapter. Now there is a question: if I want to get filters (such circular polarized or warming) should I get them in 2 sizes:43mm to go straight on the adapter and 67mm to go onto add-on lenses. Or I can get away with only 67mm and get adapter ring 43-67mm (if there is one?). Or there is another option?
And one more question: what is more popular choice for compact camera: "screw-on" filters or "Cokin adapter" style?
Thank you in advance for your help, Alex

Hi Alex;

I'm not familiar with your camera, but I know on my setup, I cannot add filters on my add-ons. I have stuck fiters between the adaptor and my lens, though I undersand that this is not the best practice. As for your other questions, I'll let the real experts here answer.
