    I planned to use all 72mm filters until I bought that damn 28-85 zoom that takes 82mm filters... :cry:

    So, I have step up rings that'll get me from 28mm (the Coolpix) all the way to 72mm.

    I have some older 52/55mm filters that I use with the Coolpix to keep things reasonable, though I won't buy anymore that size.

    Actual lens filter diameters are 28/52/55/62/67/72/82. You can see why I went with step up rings. :)

    4"x6" filters have my attention at the moment, but that could change any second. :wink:

    With my G3 I use a 58mm adapter / filters plus a 58->62mm stepping ring. I am also getting the Lensmate 52mm adapter.

    My Nikon 35 film gear which is gathering dust at the moment I have lenses which take 52,62,67 and 72mm filters plus 62->77, 67->77 and 72->77mm stepping rings

    Many between 49mm and 77mm, series VI, and bay II.

    I am looking for info on push-on filters and hoods for a Zeiss Ikonta C 521/2 w/ 10.5cm f/4.5 Zeiss Jenna Tessar.
