I have a set which looks exactly like that but they don't work and I don't know why. when I mount them on camera or lens all contact are in place but it doesn't work. but mine are old so it may have something to do with pins on camera or lens sticking out less than in older cameras.

I'm surprised no one's commented on the UV filter mention. You don't need a UV filter. It can only degrade your image quality and the only reason to have one is if you're really worried about the lens being dropped or smashed into something. Some use lens hoods instead, most just go without.

You can use them if you WANT to, but they're definitely not a NEED.
