Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F505 Digital Camera
As an up and coming buyer of the DSC-F505 camera, I would just like to ask the advice of any digi-cam experts here. As most of us already know, the DSC-F505 comes with Carl Zeiss lens, thus the first thing that comes to my mind when I buy it is "BUY SOMETHING TO PROTECT IT"... otherwise if anything does happens to the original lens, I could say bye bye to my new camera! Anyways, on to my question for anyone, what type of filter lens would you recommend me using with the DSC-F505? I do know there are quite a number of different types and brands of filter lens in the market. First and foremost, I would like advice on types of filter lens and their functions as well?? (ie. uv, polarizer, neutral-density, or whatever other types you would suggest?), and secondly, what brand name filter lens I should stick with??(why, why not, or it should not matter at all?) also, are there any drawbacks with attaching filter lens to the camera?? I was just thinking to myself that by adding additional lens to a camera that sports a "carl zeiss" lens system, it would therefore degrade the quality of the picture wouldn't it? BTW, just out of curiousity, if I was to add a filter lens to the DSC-F505, would I still be able to attach the lens cap back on the lens body when the filter lens is already attached to the camera?? Thanks for any help you can offer!

I bought a Hama skylight filter for the express purpose of protecting the lens. I've not noticed any degradation in image quality. Of course, ultimately the filter will block some of the light that's hitting the CCD, but it's so little as to not be noticeable. Being as the lens cap clips into the thread of the lens then yes, it does still fit perfectly into the thread of the filter, so no problem there!
