Re: Which adapter ring and UV filter for the SX50?

Agree withwaterwingz and Augustin, get the Lensmate adaptor. I use mine set up with the 58-43 stepdown and the Raynox 250, just like Augustin.

As to using filters for protection of the SX50, I wouldn't try to convince you one way or the other. My only suggestion is to run some tests at different focal lengths both with and without the filter attached and then do some pixel peeping. If you see some degradation at certain focal lengths with the filter on, just remember to take the filter off when you are at one of those focal lengths and need the highest sharpness. When in tough conditions or when content is more important than quality, leave the filter on.
