I ordered a 55mm UV filter for my FZ30 when I bought it. I just wanted it to protect the lens. When the filter came in, I found that it was not a UV filter but an "MC Protector DMW-LMC55" filter. Apparently Panasonic does not make a 55mm UV filter.The MC Protectoris clear and I presume that it is just a coated piece of glass intended to protect the lens. Although it does the job, the original 55mm lens cap will notfit into this filter. The internal threads on the outside of the filter are only 54 mm.
The MC protector is a perfectly good solution because in reality the UV is neutral at altitudes below 3000 feet. Whether clear or tinted the UV is a neutral filter with a zero f-stop and color rating alteration. Buying more expensive ones $13.00+ just impacts your wallet.
