Default C-5050 and filters

I just purchased a C-5050 and its on the way. Can anyone recommend a good set of quality and reasonably priced filters: UV, Polar, Protect, Fluor? Not finding much in way of reviews. Are Hoya filters quality? Would appreciate the voice of experience.

Don't forget that in order to use a filter on the C-5050 you'll also need a filter tube adapter, either the CLA-1 or the clones (depending on the size of filter you want) that the 2filter site has:


The main filters you will need is a UV or Skylight filter to protect the lens, and maybe a polarizer (for those times you wish to shoot through glass, water, or make the sky bluer). You shouldn't need a fluorescent filter as the camera has white balance.

I found 2filters.com from this forum, used them twice this week. They have good prices and excellent service.
