Re: Big question is if you can use the magnetic rings on their own

Personally I would go with the smaller size, simply because it is closer in size to the diameter of the lens, and won't extend beyond its width. Also, Jens Färber says the 52mm filter might cause shadows when using a flash.

In the Cheesycam pictures he seems to be using a 42.5mm filter. Lensmate's kit will use 49mm filters.

I think this all points me to either Cheesycam or the Färber kit. I await a price on the former, and will weigh it against the possibility of having more filter options (though knowing me, I doubt I would need anything more than the circular polarizer, and maybe a neutral density up the road). Jen's 43mm kit costs 30 € shipped to the U.S., plus the cost of filters.

What criteria would one use to decide whether to go with the 52 versus 43mm size?
