My father owns an Olympus C-2100UZ. I'd like to get him filters for father's day, as he seems enamored with mine!

The filter threading is 49mm, but should I get a step-up adapter to avoid vignetting at wide-angle (e.g. 49-55mm step-up) because of the lenses' size?

Thank you much

Johnny

Hi,



I have used both filter sizes on my C-2100UZ with never a problem of vignetting. And currently I continue to use both size filters. I leave the 55mm step-up ring on and use 55mm filters to save time for lens changes when using the T-Con or W-Con lenses. I use the 49mm filters when I am not using the additional lens. I have never had a problem. Does yourFather have the additional lenses? If so you may want to go with the 55mm filters to save time when photographing. I hope this helps.

Thank you!

He doesn't use any other lenses. He never concidered it until I got some filters for my Canon S400. Now, when we go on photo shoots together, he's been noticing that my photos are coming out better with polarizer and warming filters... and he wants some of his own! :idea:

Thank you for your replies! I ordered some 49mm filters today. I got a polarizer, ND4 and a macro set (all high-quality Hoya, of course!).

Thank you for your replies!

You won't have any problems using even 2 filters at a time on the standard lens. The only time I'd be concerned is when you put a wide angle adapter, such as the WCON08 or WCON07 on the camera.
