how about a REALLY close-up shot of your latest masterpiece !?

Here's my pic of front of lens adaptor, plus skylight and lens cap. The camera is off, proving lens fully retracts.
Apologies for pic quality, took it with an old Sony digicam.
Even so it shows that the camera looks as good as it handles, unlike the plasticy sc-fi looks of the 7,!!

Default Oh WOW !

this is so ~ cute

kinda get rids of the "dead-end" feeling at the lens front .
.. and U adjusted the ring so that all the lettering would show up as a guide /for dummies/ ?
good work allant . I'm sure Steve approves too "V"

Is there any reason why Steves said he was using a 40.5 to 49 mm adaptor ring and Allant is using a 40.5 to 46mm adaptor...or do both work. I still got a 49 mm polar, that's why.

Eheum, but I'll first have to go and by the 5700.

I bought the 46 adaptor from a price point of view, the smaller the filter the cheaoer they are.
Because the lens elements close flush, I can't see a problem using a 49m adaptor.

I chose 49 because it is a very common filtert size and easy to find accessories.

I'm interested if vignetting might be a problem -- either with the 46mm or 49mm adapter. I presume that a single filter would be ok; if anyone has experience with two filters in either size and could reply I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

You know - the only thing I wanted for my CP5700 was some kind of protection of the lens. I bought - at nextphoto - the adapter in 46mm (maybe some would prefer 49mm - larger ass.) then I bougt a simple filter, no skylight no nothing - pure glass. I unscrewed the glass and mounted it in the filter - the screwring and glass fitted well. No vingnetting. Just a protection for the lens.
That's one way to do it.
