I believe you will need the Olympus friction fit lens thread adaptor as there are no threads on the camera itself.

If it's a filter adaptor you want then it's a slide over and screw fit (not friction). My CLA4 adaptor says 45.6 - 55mm.

That's assuming it's the same as C730.

Now you can get those all important polariser and ND filters.

Wrong, I already have them for my Minolta Maxxum. I can only use one camera at a time, so no sense buying duplicate filters.

It's a good idea to keep the filter tube adapter and a UV/Skylight filter on at all times to protect the lens tube from getting bumped (some people have had their lens tube bumped while extended and knocked it out of alignment so it doesn't move).

I expected a slip-on adapter, but this is a threaded adapter that screws into the body behind the lens. In addition to providing a mount for filters, it protects the lens from accidental bumps.

A slip on tube would be useless...first of all it would put extra weight on the lens assembly (the lens already wobbles as it is)...second, when the lens retracts the tube (and any filter or accessory lens) would fall off.
