Default options to protect a 5700 lens

I want to purchase a filter to protect the Nikon 5700 lens and I wonder what is the best option:

1. Use a UR-E8 adapter with a 72mm filter.
2. Use a TC-E15ED 1.5x telephoto lens converter with a 58mm filter.

I am led to believe that filters would cause vignetting for nearly the
entire range of the zoom using option 1 above.

Comments please...

Thank you.

There's no vignetting if you use UR-E8 + Bernie 72mm adapter (with 1 filter, stacking will cause vignetting). I don't think putting the teleconverter as protection is a good idea, since it means you won't get the wide angle anymore (35mm). Every focal length is multiplied by 1.5, you end up at 52mm as the widest angle you can get.

Why not buy a filteradapter from canadian Nextphoto and put on a filter. I did - very easy to install and the camera wont get big and clumsy.

This will only extend the lens with min. 3mm max. 6mm depending on how you attatch it.
