Size matters

No one in the thread has mentioned, well threads.  It's probably worth thinking more about what lenses you're likely to get in the future as you'll want whatever filter you buy to be as big or bigger.  I started out buying 52mm filters as that was what my Oly XZ-1 and the Nikon kit lenses took.  I upgraded to a lens that takes 72mm filters so my 52mm B+W polarizer sits on a shelf gathering dust.

Today I standardized on a 77mm filter and I have stepping rings so I can mount that on a 72 or 52mm thread.  Rings are like $5 so easy enough to get if I get a lens with a different thread set.
