    Don't be smart (lol), OP was seriously asking if a 52mm filter would fit 52mm threads on his lens.

    ...lol

    Damn - you caught me.

    Well, we know that they are both 52mm... What is the thread pitch? If they are not the same, it will not work.

    Report back when you have found that out.

    I'm on your side, you must not have caught the sarcasm in my statement.

    Don't know how to check or know pitch until you try. 52mm might fit 52mm, only way to know is to try.

    I dunno, just reading some of the questions and comments here on TPF, I realize that "there is no such thing as a...."

    But some of them here on TPF sure come close.

    I consider you one of the good guys, so my apologies to you.

    To the OP -

    Thread pitch is pretty much standardized throughout all filter/camera manufacturers - the filter will work.

    Ignore our little games...at least one of us has been drinking tonight, lol.

    I wasn't about to ask a stupid question about differences in thread pitch.

    If you have a 52mm thread on the lens, and a 52mm filter...

    You can make it fit...

    at least once...

    lol

    And I NEVER drink and type!

    You make that sound like it's bad or something...

    I know when I'm too drunk to type, damnit. I know everyone says that - but I really mean it.

    Besides, I can type pretty good drunk...

    I was mostly worried about differences in the diameter of the lens tube when compared to the diameter of a 52mm end of, say, a Canon EF lens or something. The A590 IS isn't a DSLR.

    I'm new to this stuff, gimme a break :p
