Re: Can someone explain UV filters please?

Putting a filter of any type and a WA lens will most likely cause vignetting..

and putting a Polarizer on top of another filter may also cause vignetting at the WA end.
One way to find out is to try the combo you have.

So it is possible to put a UV filter on the camera and then attach
a wide angle lens?

How about a polarizer?

Any suggestions on brands / models of relatively cheap ones to get
for a FZ5 / FZ50?
