clump that won't take filters easily

What filters would you want to use with it?

ND Infrared UV ( for protection, I hate cleaning front lens element in field in case grit rubs the coating off ) I even bought a CP for mine but haven't seen how good it works yet.

Exactly what doesn't work as well with Olympus?

CA and distortion correction, perhaps focusing.
