I am considering purchasing an S5200. I am confused as to the use of an adapter ring for filters and lenses.

Is 55mm a standard size and a 55mm to 52mm adapter ring must be used for filters and lenses? Are there any standard 52mm lenses or filters?

An adapter ring is used to enable you to use a filter that you already have that is not the right size to fit your camera. 55 mm is a standard filter size, but so is 58 mm, 62 mm, etc.. So if you already have some larger filters you can get an adapter ring that will enable you to attach those filters to your camera. However, if you are going to purchase new filters, just purchase the ones that are the right size for your camera.
