I just use my lens cap as a filter, as my favourite colour is black I'm really happy with the results.

I use the filter linked below. It is designed to eliminate haze and serves as a nice lens protector.

Gordy-

And using a Polarizing Filter reduces glare and enhances blue skies and clouds.

I use the same Hoya UV filter but the 55mm size for my FZ50. Mainly to protect the lens. Very happy with it.

And not to mention the fact that you don't have to worry very much about getting the correct white balance, either! What a bonus!

Getting back on topic, I have a UV filter for protection from my own idiocy, a circular filter, and one of those fluorescent lamp filters that I got in a 3-pack buying the camera. Haven't even touched the fluorescent illumination filter, though I've played with the circular polarizing filter a few times, with so-so results.

How well does that Hoya haze filter work at cutting through haziness? And what about the Haze-1? What are the disadvantages of using that filter? Is there a reduction in light levels, or...?

It won't. If you get the 46mm filter, it screws onto the inner lensing section that pops in or out with the zoom. No jack-in-the-box surprises.
