    I'm expecting delivery of my Panasonic FZ7 tomorrow, and am planning a
    weekend trip where I want to start using it right away. Because it may
    arrive late in the day, I want to go to a local camera store to pick up
    certain accessories, but I want to make sure that I'm getting the right
    things.

    First and foremost, I want to get a clear or UV filter to protect the
    lens. I THINK that it takes 52mm filter, but I'm not sure. Can anyone
    verify that? Is there anything else that I would need to specify with
    regard to the protective filter?

    I also want to pick up a protective film that fits over the LCD. Does
    anyone know what these are called and what specific size this camera
    would take? (I THINK that the LCD is 2-1/2", but again, I'm not sure).

    Any help with these questions and/or suggestions of other necessary
    accessories (of an immediate nature) to pick up would be greatly
    appreciated.

    If shooting in sun a circular polariser is good, I dont know if your lcd
    needs protection my Sony has thick Lexan over it. Consider the wide and
    telephoto adaptor lens.

    Yes, it takes a 52mm filter;

    With both my DRebel,and now my 30D, I use the protective sheets sold
    for PDA screens,and cut to size. I get them at Fry's Electronics. They
    stick well, and are inexpensive enough to simpluy replace when needed.

    That's really up to you. I can suggest all sorts of gadgets and
    accessories, but do you really need an espresso dispensor for the
    camera? :)
