I saw those filters on ebay Ian and they are being sold by the same person who sold me the hood....if i was you i would buy the filters and the hood....they come very well packed....then you could remove glass from the useless +1 filter and attach that to lens hood to make it a lil longer....it's what i would do and works out at just under 14 quid for the lot posted to uk!

Get the 52mm size so that the hood will go onto the Kyocera extension tube

Tried out my lens hood tonite .....i had only tried it straight on the Kyocera adaptor.....put a uv filter between the hood and lens and the coeners are visible of the hood so at full wide angle i cant even have a uv on! Still the filters that KK kindly sent me and which have now been de glassed will make a good extension for the hood for when i shoot at a different zoom range....i am going to glue the 2 filters together and spray them matt black so it looks better

Using the filters as an additional extension tube did nothing in terms of making magnification higher using the +4 close up so that was a waste of time!

In an idle moment (of which I seem to have many!) and as I was playing with an el cheapo glass magnifying lens (off one of those helping-hand thingys) .... it just happened to fit in my lens hood ...........

(macro setting, full optical zoom, poor room lighting, f3.1, 1sec, mini tripod, 2 sec self timer)

Tony,

I'm waiting to get my +10 so I can post something:lol:

Hope it arrives soon, have got some old filters and taken the glass out so the extension tubes done.

Just waiting for the lens set.
