Don't know how to advise regarding the add-on lenses. Quite a few people are using the Raynox & T-Con lenses, but Fuji says the lens on the 9000/9500 is not designed to accommodate them. I have not heard of any problems, but apparently using them will invalidate your warranty.

As far as filters are concerned, if you purchase 58 mm filters they will attach directly to the lens. I have a UV and a polarizer filters for my 9000. I leave the UV filter attached almost permanently. I have used the polarizer a few times. It makes a little difference, but I like the results I am getting without it.

58 mm refers to the diameter of the filter. That is the size filter that fits on your camera. Filters are sold in many different sizes, 49 mm, 52 mm, 62 mm, etc.. You need to purchase filters that are 58 mm in diameter.

A lot of people recommend Hoya filters. I just went to a local camera store and they had a Quantaray filter in stock. I purchased it and have had no complaints about it.
