    I'm the new owner of this little camera and can't figure out how to put my UV filter onto it. The lens on the camera is the basic konica hexanon 50mm f1.7 and the filter has a hood and is Tiffen UV filter.

    I read somewhere that you have to put the filter behind the lens..but I just don't understand how that can be.:grumpy:

    The filters for that lens (and most lenses) screw onto the front.
    Of course you need a filter that is the correct size for that lens.
    The hood would go on after the filter.

    Rear mounted filters are usually only used on very large lenses.

    Well..the filter and lens are 55mm size..but it won't screw on.

    Then the threads on either the filter or the lens (or both) are damaged or bent.

    The most common cause is a dent on the lens in the filter ring area.
