The Nikon 3T and 4T macro filters are 52mm in size and the 5T and 6T are 62mm in size, so you would need a step down or step up ring to use these. They are excellent Macro filters and can be found on Ebay and other camera stores. At this time I couldn't find any on bhphoto.com, but that is where I bought mine.

There are of course the Minolta Macro lenses that come with 55mm thread to begin with.

There are also Hoya's at 55mm.

Cheers

i noticed after reading through some other threads that the adaptorthat comeswith the fz5 has to be sanded down in order to attach other lenses.

is this correct? (i really don't want to do that)(looks like they are talking about for long lenses).

so now all i have to do is buy a step up ring--(55mm to 62mm) and the nikon 6t and a 62mm uv and i'm all set to go.
