I'm thinking about buying a Powershot SX40 which fills my needs and is within budget. One thing that I would like to be able to do is to use the 55mm filters that I bought with my old Minolta 35mm. The filters were expensive and are in excellent condition so I hate to just toss them.
I've easily found 58 and 67mm adapter rings for the SX40. And even found one place in England that has and adapter ring for 55mm, but so far non here in the U.S. (Not inclined to pay the shipping from England)
Does anybody know if the 55mm adapter ring is available here in the U.S. and can give me a company name or URL or both?
Or maybe there's a reason not to use the old filters I'm not aware of??
You could try a 58mm filter adapter + a 58-55mm step-down ring, but can't promise that you won't get any vignetting at the wide end.
