Having searched the archives ....

I want a 49mm UV filter for my A2, don't wish to use a step-up
adapter, and want to keep using my KM lens cap. I'd like something
thin, multi-coated, with 49mm threads in the front. I struck out
at B&H, and at Adorama could find only this (at $52.50):

Within my parameters, can I do better?

Thanks,

I used an original Minolta 49mm L37 UV filter for my 7hi/A1

It is a slim version and has front thread. No vignetting at any focal length. The coating on the filter matches the Minolta GT zoom lens as well.
