I am wondering what people have been doing about filters and accessory lenses. I am using the extension that they pack with the camera and put the UV filter on there and then use the hood that is also packaged with the camera but wonder what others do. Seems like a far piece to go to put on a filter, why they didn't just put the screw grooves in the lense area is beyond me. I had the hood on and exention and still got some flair so go figure.

This camera however gives me about 90% of what a DSLR would for a third of the cost and the lens is a Leica to book.

I have so far over exposed some pictures but will get used to the camera soon I hope.

I cannot say most but many people buy a third party adapters, smaller filters and a Hama multi-lens hood. No need to buy expensice filters the Hoya standard line have one coating on each side and this camera only requires a Linear Polarizer PL.

Try these two sites for more information.
