HD1000, HD1010, HD2000 Screw On Filters?
 
I've just received my HD2000 and it has a 40.5mm filter thread on the lens.
I am looking to pickup a high quality UV protection filter, and also a circular polarizing filter.
My quest begins by me noticing the Sanyo Xacti OEM Circular Polarizing Filter VCP-F01PLU and the Protection Lens VCP-F02PU.

I also have the Sanyo Xacti VCP-L07WU 0.7 Wide/Macro Lens (40.5mm > 67mm) and the Sanyo Xacti VCP-L16TU 1.6 Teleconverter Lens (40.5mm > 55mm).

My questions are:
  1. Has anyone used these "Xacti" filters, and if so do they work w/o any distortion, lens flair, vignetting or color issues?
  2. Are there any threads on both sides of the filter to "stack" one on top of each other?
  3. Does the Circular Polarization filter rotate to adjust the amount of effect the filter offers?
  4. Would you suggest stacking (not just the filters listed above, but any filter) going from Camera>UV Filter>Circular polarizing and then one of the Tele or Wide conversions, or would taking the circular polizaring off of the 40.5mm position and purchasing one for each of the 55mm or 67mm tele/wide converters be a better solution?
  5. If not the "Xacti" brand of filters, what experiences have you all had with other MFG filters, such as color issues or anything similar? If I do not go with the Xacti brand filters, I'm going to look at either HOYA multi reflective coating, Tiffen Titanium Coated, Formatt or B+W models.

All help/models/part numbers, would greatly be appreciated & thanks in advance!

I wish i can add filters on my unit but it's balanced already for my stabalizer.

Here are a few videos

I use the 40,5>37mm step down and 37mm polarizer and close-up+3 from Hama rest in post. Also ideal but expensive Century FishEye. See my clips at www.vimeo.com/xacti

Why 40.5>37 and not 40.5<43? As it seems that less vignetting should occur...

I got 40.5>49mm and I use all my lens for the Olympus C-2100UZ ,
its also 10X zoom , but those Olympus lens does not came for cheap.

Some Olympus extra lens use 55mm but I have step-up from 49-55,
so I can use them all ..

B-300 1.7X Tele 55mm
A-200 1.5X Tele 49mm
A-28 0.8 Wide 49mm
B-28 0.8 Wide 55mm
Olympus Macro f=40 55mm

And the light weight Olympus Tele 1.5X 43mm
But I do not trust this one.
Its uses an simple clip on mechanism with two buttons.
