A lot of members ask or talk about the Olympus Tcon-17 and or the legendary Olympus b-300 (tcon 17 took over that model) which are incredible high quality teleconverters for the price.

When I received my B-300 I had two minor setup challenges.

First, the B-300 is a very heavy lens and I do not want want to add stress to the camera or the UV/Haze lens protector by holding on to B-300 or by accidently hitting the camera at the end of the lens because its so long.

And second, it is always a must for me to keep a hood on during day shoots and the B-300 does not have front threads to screw on a hood.

I had Ron Jin the maker of Phayee tube adapter make me a custom made 72mm tube to accomdate the B-300 (probably would work fine with Tcon-17)

The original 72mm extension Phayee tube was only .75 inches and he made me one that is 2.25 inches.

This setup protects the teleconverters lens and essentially the whole camera by insulating the B-300.

And yes, i only take pictures in the nude, makes my FZ camera feel special.

I was wondering what the difference is between the Hoya Pro1 S- HMC UV filter and the Hoya HMC Multi-Coated UV Filter?

Is the Pro just more thin?

Is this one (http://cgi.benl.ebay.be/ws/eBayISAPI...ayphotohosting) worth buying?

In a local shop i can get a B&W multi coated UV-filter, are these also ok?

Ok, i just found the Hoya Pro1 in a local shop!!

Do get a hood. Very important. If you get the Phayee adapter tube from ron jin (jinfinance) then get this hood.

Why? Because you can adjust the length of the hood based on what kind of photography you do..(macro versus tele)
Is there an advantage to getting the 72mm lens hood as opposed to a 62mm, if you have the Phayee adapter? I'm thinking that if your filters are double-threaded the 62mm will fit, without the added length of the 72mm section.

Any thoughts?
