    Thank you Neil sounds like it will be fine until I can find a branded one. Happily I don't intend to use a hood as the QL17 is for "street shooting" and I don't want the camera looking too obvious lol

    Do you want some 48 mm filters? I have several (Hoya) I shall probably never use again. If you're interested, I'll write a list.

    Regards,

    David your a Godsend It's a UV I'm really after if you have one. Just let me know what you would like for it. I'm on a late shift soon so whenever it's convenient

    Have Hoya UV, yellow/green, orange and 80B, also Vivitar cross-screen diffuser, all virtually mint. Also older Leitz yellow/green and yellow, usable but not perfect. Also have Hoya stepping ring (49 mm filter/48 mm mount). £6 for one filter including UK postage. Open to offers for the lot!

    Just an update on this one. The filters I was asking about are Hitco which look good quality but not a name I've heard of. However I now have a couple of mint Hoyas' thanks to David being kind enough to sell me his.

    Hoya filters are the best and still not that expensive. Why spend a fortune on a lens then put a bottle end in front of it to save pennies?

    Very true David At the time I has having trouble finding 48mm as I couldn't find them listed at Hoya anymore. It's the Hoya I'm now happily using.

    Probably too late, but you might check for Canon branded 48mm filters. They make some that screw into the drop in filter holder that fits some of the big white telephotos.
