My advice is to buy the filteradapter (sadly there's no screwoption on the lens itself), ex. 49mm and then buy a filter to put on. It's at this time the best and most popular option with the CP5700. Forget about the UR-E8 unless you buy some lenses.

Thanx for your advice, but what i mean is...if i attached the UR-E8 to the camera and dettached the optional telephoto converter (TC-E15ED), is it possible to attach filters?

I only tried this with my CP5000 and it gave some vignetting, but i could use it in macro. Very limited - right! I recon you will get the same problem with the CP5700. The reason why I mentioned the solution with the adapter is, that you really should protect that zoom lens' glass from scrathces. The adapter will go in to the housing with the lens and the camera will mentain it's size (give a couple of millimeters). You also can attacht all the filter here if you like. The adapter will leave you with your camera extended about 5-6cm depending on the filters.

I've tried it, as I mentioned, and ended up with that solution. But if you have plenty of dollars - go ahead and experiment! Everything is possible if you've god the imagnination.

Good luck.

Absolutely not! Don't even think about trying this solution. :!: What's going to happen is that if you extend the lens to full telephoto (i.e., 280mm) the lens barrel will extend past the length of the UR-E8 adapter, causing damage to the barrel, filter and adapter. The adapter is simply there to take the weight of any of the Teleconverters. The barrel itself (as you can probably tell just by visual inspection) is fragile and really can't support much weight. Use Bernie's adapter - this is really the best solution out there. 8)

Hi inoino,

Bernie's solution is the one for this poor 5700. I believe you've already known the url for his website.

Just to share some infos about the solution for 5700, apparently a guy from korea showed his solution using UR-E8 and 50-72 mm step-up adapter (yes, 50-72 mm is hard to find). I'll give you the url for the thread:

Sorry ino, I only have one camera, which means I cannot take a snapshot of my own camera + coolfix variable adapter

But I'll give a link to photos posted by Bernie himself: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/read....essage=3415726

Thanx gared, but i think we can use a 62 mm filter, and the fully extended lens will not collide with the (if we can use the 62 mm) filter.....but if it is not, so we have to buy another bernies 40.5-46 mm, and it seems to me that the variable adapter just work like a sunshade, is it right?....would explain it to me! thanx!

Exactly, the idea of using variable adapter is, so we can use 62 mm filter and at the same time it replaces the need of a UR-E8. You don't need another smaller filter adapter, but you can still use Bernie's 46 mm adapter inside the variable adapter, if you choose to use one. And yes, it also acts as a hood. Don't forget, you have to pull the variable adapter back at wide angle, otherwise you'll get vignetting.
