    Lens hood Filter arrangements

    1. you have to buy a Adapter to fit a Filter.?

    2. Lens hood can't be used with a Filter..??

    3. Lend Cap can't fit on the Filter. ??

    4. DMW-CHFZ8 case is to small the take the adapter + Filter..

    Please correct me if I am wrong as the Reviews do not mention this, they do refer to a Adapter for
    the Lens Hood but do not state if this adapter can be used with a Filter..

    A friend brought a Canon PowerShot Pro1 and that suffered the same problem, lens hood no filter or
    filter with no lens hood, but that did not worry him to much as he thinks that lens hoods cut out
    the visable light, he was using a film camera before and he showed me stacks of photos take in OZZ
    with out a Lens hood ALL suffered lens flare.

    It's not an isolated problem. I bought a Nikon D40 and a Tiffen
    Skylight filter and a threaded rubber lens hood. The lens hood would
    not screw in. As soon as I can get back to the camera store I'll
    exchange the Tiffen for a filter that does accept a screw-in lens
    hood. The rigid plastic Nikon lens hood works over the filter, but I
    don't like a rigid hood.

    No. It goes on the included lens hood adapter.
    No. The lens hood can be used with a filter.
    No. Lens cap does fit on the filter if the filter is stack threaded.
    And lens cap isn't terribly important with the lens retracted way back
    into the lens hood adapter.
    I use a much cheaper and better aftermarket leather case that fits
    Filters mount to the lens hood adapter.
    The lens hood can be mounted at the same time.
    Not a problem with the FZ8.
