Best way: obtain a 49mm filter adapter .. either buy a 40.5->48 adapter and file the threads or buy a premade one. Then yu can use 49mm accessories.

Visit the following web site:

The Coolfix Variable Adapter for the 5700 allows you to use standard 62mm filters on the 5700. And the variable adapter can stay on the camera fulltime, if you choose. There are other adapters there is you decide to go with a fixed diameter, like 46, 49, or 52mm.

Default What size adapter?

With the different size adapters for the CP5700; how do you know which one to buy or doesn't it make a difference? I was wondering if different sizes would have any effect on the quality of the photo? I have a Nikon 35mm SLR and 62mm polarizer filter for it Just wondering if I could use the filters for both cameras without effecting the end results of a good picture.

size does not matter except for convenience. I would recommend 49mm since that is not bigger than the fornt end of the telescoping lens. IMO 62 mm would be unwieldy. If you go to eBay 49mm folters are dirt cheap. Yu may be able to buy a set, /c polarizer and UV for 10 to 20$.
