I use the Pemaraal PD62 adaptor, a Hoya UV & a Hoya Linear Polarizer. More than happy with this combo.

Thanks for the good info. a couple of questions:

1) there are a number of hoya filters for f10 what was the exact models?
a is the hoya green label 62 mm skylight filter in the sky filters 1a section at around $5 the correct one to order? there are 4 others with different coatings (?) ranging to $55 in the 1b section what is the diffence between the hoya filters in the 1b section?

2) what is the difference between linear & circular polarizers?
advantages & disadvantages of each
3) the permaal adapter i found was $32 do I need anything else - rings?

4) what is the difference between a skylight filter & a uv filter?

i notice that at 2,8 opening there is more depth of field in my close ups for portraits

this can be adjucted with editing but i was wondering if there is a filter which helps to blur the background more

The DOF also depends on the focal length.

If you can step back and zoom more, you'll get a shallower DOF.
