For the lens, has anyone tried the
ACMAXX LENS ARMOR Multi-Coated UV FILTER Olympus XZ-1
(amazon and ebay)

How does that thing even attach? There aren't any threads on the end of the lens.

I generally use the lens naked, but if I'm shooting in a dusty or sea-spray environment, I'll just stick a standard 52mm UV filter on the end of my XZ-1 Lensmate.

I'm generally against adding extra glass unnecessarily, as it just encourages flare. I guess it keeps Hoya/Pentax going, though, which is good for the industry!
