UV filter fits w/o lens hood adaptor... if you reverse it.

I just accidentally found out that there's no real need for the lens hood adaptor to attach a UV filter (and keep the smaller form factor).

not sure if that is known already, but if you just reverse the 49mm UV Filter, it screws on perfectly (at least mine) see pics:

no hood

hood with UV filter

reversed UV filter / no hood

however now, the lens cap does not hold tight anymore..
