Thanks for the info. I wanted to know the dimensions beforehand so I wouldn't have to open the camera and leave it open till I cut the glass.

3mm+1mm sound a lot more than what I thought it was going to be though.

I may be wrong here, but since the filter has a refractive index greater than the air, removing it should be equivalent to moving the lens away from the sensor (disabling infinity focus), and replacing it with a thicker glass should affect the minimum focus distance (no big deal), so I guess I'll go for a 4mm+ replacement.

Did autofocus continue to work with your GX1 after removing the filters? I am not 100% sure about this, but since it relies on visible signal from the sensor for autofocus, unless it also uses distance info from the lens (like the Nikons do), converting it to a full spectrum camera shouldn't affect it.
