Hi Guys,
Right, well, as I say, if it doesn't go on when the camera is off, then it will cause a problem. Even so, I can work around it by putting on a 52mm lens frame on first. BTW..... I never add an adapter to the camera before I add filters. But I'm more interested in whether the 'geometry' of a 58mm filter lens on a 52mm housing, will distort what the sensor sees, in a way that a 52mm filter would not. Any thoughts?
..... john

You should see less edge distortion, all other things being equal (but they never are), since you will actually not be using the outside of the close-up lens, which is where most of the distortion tends to occur. Of course, that is just a guess, since I haven't used that setup myself.

Well, it's academic for the moment. The guy I was going to buy the 500D from, didn't show up for the deal, so I'm still looking.
