I have been trying to look around online for information on what size the filter rings need to be for the 5060. I know there are two rings, an outer one connected to the body and threads that are actually on the extendable lense itself. That is where I would like to put any filters of course. Does anyone know what size I would need?

You may want to consider purchasing the Raynox RT5248Lense Adapter which will accomodate a larger variety of filters made at 62 mm. The tube is only around $15 and being aluminum, protects your lense tube from accidental bumps....

When the lens goes in and out it acts like a bellows and sucks in air. If you put a lens adapter tube around it with a UV filter on the front, it not only protects the lens from knocks and things that might gouge the front lens, but it keeps dirt from getting sucked into the camera when the lens extends.

This argument convinced me to leave the tube/uv on my C-755 more or less permanently.

Thanks for the feedback. I am going to look into the Raynox. I used to use UV's all the time on my 35mm rig as lense protectors, so that has a lot of appeal to me in the digital world too.

From what I see, this doesn't seem to be the case for the c5060. I say this because there is build-up of dustat the end of thelens barrel of my camera. It seems that any dust resting on the lens barrel is being pushed out when the lens retracts.
