Which Lens Filters will fit?

Will the Sony 49MM Lens filters fit the NEX lenses or do I need to wait for something NEX specific? Will any other brands fit if the Sony ones don't? Thanks!

Most will do. I currently bought a batch of Marumi DHG filters at around 25D

Very funny. Sony filters not fit ? Where does that come from?

Kenco Pro1 UV 49 mm is good for the 18-55. Made in Japan. It's painted flat black, has notched grips, and a heavy curved inside groove for the lens cap grips.

I don't turn it too tight because I can't see how close the filter glass is to the lens glass.

What is the filter thread size for the 18-200mm ? One option is to get a larger filter & a step up ring from 49mm however the ssue of hoods also needs to be considered if you do that , some filters have front threads which will accept a rubber screw-on hood but others don't.

It comes from a lifetime of nothing ever being compatible and standards being meaningless Thanks for the recommendation!

My $-4.95-49mm-filter fits both kit lenses, even if you use sun shade.

Filter + remote ... each less than $ 5 (with shipping)

Hi, Where did you buy the filter and remote from? I'm interested to purchase those as well. Thanks

jenny, any 49mm filter will fit the nex, you can look up a list of them from amazon or bhphotovideo, just make sure they're listed for 49mm (filter-size) lenses.
