It's a tube that fits over the *floating* lens barrel (note, not "wobbly"). The filter tube adapter then gives you a standard filter size of 55mm, 52mm, 46mm, or whatever size you wish (52 seems to be the best). Some photos of a tube courtesy of the Oly_C-700 Yahoo Group:

The body side of the filter tube adapter is always 45.6mm, and you have to get a tube specific to the C-7x0 series of cameras.

Just the technical term.

As we say in the Oly_C-700 Yahoo Group, we're not here to defend Olympus...we're here to help you survive them.

The barrel tube is not very firmly inserted in his place and has a slight movement up/down/left/right (around his axis). This movement is more amply when the barrel tube is bossy. Anyway, I understand from the members here this is normal and I sleep well now You know...I'm from Romania and here this camera is very, very expensive. It's about 1200$ I don't see the filters and the tube in Romania you speak here for my camera and I don't know exactly what is a tube and how can I mout the tube on the barrel.
Thank you all for your support!

Look at the 2 filters link I posted earlier. I don't know if they take international orders or not. Possibly someone travelling could ourchase for you? Olympus offers a tube, but its more expensive and doesn't have the aesthetics of the aftermarket model.

I purchased the adapter tube , Hoya 52 mm UV Haze filter, and Snap on lens cap from http://www.2filter.com
as recommended by Jerry Backof above (thanks).
The items cost me 21.63 inc postage & packing to UK , the Company is brilliant to deal with and I got the goods in a couple of days.
Highly Recommended !!
