In retrospect, I'm considering doing it this way: Phayee 62mm > 62mm UV filter > Phayee 72mm > 72mm lens hood/and or 72mm lens cap. Comments?

Would there any flaring or shadows from the added length?
Are you describing Phayee adapter 62mm filter inside, outsideconnect Phayee hood, 72mm Hama hood and 72mm cap connected to the Hama.
Your configuration is correct. I do not know if there isvignetting at 1X, but if there is none remember the Hama is a 3-position hood, that is the best solution
Yes, exactly! I think it would look like the pictures in jsiladi's post in this thread:
http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=23

Thanks for all of your explanations, I understand everything much better now. The thread genders were throwing me off, I understand that the base Phayee has BOTH inner and outer threads now. Makes much more sense

I'll order my Phayee and UV filter in the morning. I'll hold off on the polarizer for now, until I get a little more experienced and would make better use of it. I also have to find/choose a collapsable hood (probably Hama).

Thanks again!!

Jesse

You have it correct. Try and explain it to the next guy, I dare you. I wish my adpater was ready for sale it eliminates the different lens mount problems thatmany people have. There is no other hood choice it is the Hama or Hama copy.

Phayee is good. Pemaraal is good Yosheda is good but the best 62mm adapter is my own design. I get 62mm 55mm and 52mm very close and do not use step rings.
