Re: For an exact match; Fujifilm

If you are willing to pay, Fujifilm makes their own clear protection filters. They offer the same coatings that are on the lenses themselves and I would expect the glass is also a match as well. B&H Photo offers a 49mm filter for the X100 series in black or silver, plus nine other sizes with black only rings. But at $49 and up, like all Fuji accessories, they aren't cheap.

Bill, are you sure that Fuji actually makes their own filters rather than relabeling a high quality filter made by someone else?  Outsourcing and relabeling is a common thing in Japan.
