    In order to use this product you have to have the lens adaptor part number DMW-LA6. It would be immensely helpful to have this fact duly noted as a priority. I haven't been able to use the filter yet. So I am unable to effectively rate the product.

      Comments about Panasonic 52mm MC Protector Filter:

      This is a perfect fit on the FZ200. It is a pleasure to be able to place a filter directly on a point and shoot camera without having to add an extender. I am reasonably assured of lens protection with this filter and it is working just fine so far.

        Comments about Panasonic 52mm MC Protector Filter:

        I purchased the product at the recommendation of the Panasonic Lumix folks and I am very happy. Because I use the camera in many circumstances: varying weather conditions, dusty areas, around children, etc. I feel much more comfortable having the lens protected by this clear filter. And, it doesn't preclude me from attaching other lenses to use artistically.

            This skylight filter is the only one that allows proper usage of the Lumix lens hood. Generic filters interfere with attachment of lens hood.

              This is a clear filter, made only to protect the lens. So far, I find that it is perfect. Does not distort, or affect the photo in any way. I would definitely recommend.

                  I knew I would need this and confirmed that the day before it arrived by putting my greasy finger right on my lens when removing the cap that was already off. Oh well. The lens is exactly as described and fits perfectly.

                                          Works perfectly with the DMW-LA6 and my LX-5. Great quality and well built.

                                          Product is for my Panasonic Lumix fx40. Installs easily and protects the camera lens, lens cover also stays on better on this than it does on the actual camera lens itself.. Made well and price was GREAT from B&H...

                                          I am using the DMW-LMC52 Protector Filter on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 camera. It fits the camera perfectly and works great. I am pleased with this purchase.

                                            I bought this filter for my new FZ40, fits nicely, and very clear. Unfortunately IQ of FZ40 turned me down so I returned the camera, but I keep this filter and use it on the lens of my K-x I just bought, it works perfectly!

                                              If you have decided to spend a hundreds of dollars for a lens it is wise to protect it by a UV protector filter.But it has to be made from a good, transparent glass and Panasonic DMW-LMC52 fulfill that expectationI have also DMW-LMC46 for my other lens which is great too. Those filters were purchased at the B@H Photo Video store [...] Thank you guys!
