Well, obviously it was my stupidity that I did not check the diameters before buying the B+W protective filter. The image below nicely shows that the outer diameter of the filter is significantly larger than the front end of the lens barrel (top of the image) and just slightly smaller than the outer diameter of the bayonet for attaching the lens hood (bottom part of the image):

And as regards the lens cap, I don't use the original Ricoh one, but bought a third-party one (I think it was Jessops, http://www.jessops.com/online.store/products/76687/show.html ), about the size of the filter itself, with a rubber strip which attaches the cap to the camera body. Never had problems with it, sits excellent on the filter:

Thanks and regards,
Martin
