The Instrtuction Manual of my Olympus doesn't mention the filter diameter. It seems about 37 mm. I'm right?

Olympus does not list a filter size because the SP550, 560, 570 are not manufactured to take filters (due to the construction of the high zoom lens.)and Olympus does not recommend a filter.

However, do an internet search, there are numerous aftermarket adapters if you feel you must have a filter.

53mm on the body but it will be listed as 52mm, olympus adapter tube is again 53mm where it connects to the body and the end of the adapter (where you connect your filters or conversion lenses) is 55mm.

items that u will find on ebay will either be 52-55-58mm where they are mentioning this end where lenses/filters connect. all the stuff you will find, as long as it says for sp-550/560/570 will fit your camera.

i use 52mm adapter tubes which kinda limits my wide angle shots when using filter (ie PL filter) zooming (so you wont get the round black circle in the shot) also naturaly increases aperture which slows down the lens, unfortunately i cant say olympus uses the fastest lenses (but still impresive for a 520mm lens).
