First, make sure that the lens diameter is 62mm. It should say on the front or on the body of the lens. If this is correct, it could be a unique mount that would require a specific brand. If it's quantaray, it might require quantaray filters. If it's an old lens, it might require an attachment to the front of the lens that would act as a filter holder for the square filter tiles.
Wow, four days I just can't get to all the question. Okay here is a solution or two. I've been in the situation several times when the filter just won't unscrew from the front of the lens. Well, the problem is you have to squeeze the lens to get a grip of it which believe it or not makes it out of round and it wil refuse to budge. So method one is to place a wide rubber band around the filter edge and very lightly with your fingers try to unscrew it without applying pressure to the filter (squeeze) This works for me 90% of the time. Another way is by placing the rubber bottom of a mouse pad flat against the filter face edge and unscrew the filter that way. You need to hold the camera/lens in one hand and the mouse pad against the filter with the other and gently turn it off. When it comes you will be amazed at how little pressure it took to turn it off. Best of luck
The SP-570UZ does not have a filter thread; therefore, lens filters cannot be attached directly to the camera.
Filters with 55mm diameter can be attached to the SP-570UZ via the CLA-10 Lens Tube Adapter, sold separately. However, it is not recommended because vignetting may occur in the corners of the image when the camera is set to wide angle positions.
The CLA-10 Lens Tube Adapter (Item #202104) is available from authorized Olympus dealers and also online from The Olympus Store: http://emporium.olympus.com
Please use thin type filters to prevent vignetting on the corners.
The following filters are vignetting-free.
Konica Minolta 49mm AC L37 (UV filter)
(Thickness is approx. 5.5mm in total, and approx. 3.4mm excluding the screw part.)
Konica Minolta 49mm ND 4x filter
49mm type causes vignetting. Please use Konica Minolta filter adapter (49mm > 62mm) and 62mm Polarizing filter II (Circular) in combination.
Get a CLA-1 lens tube. It screws into the camera body. The other end accepts 43mm accessories. Put on a 43-49mm step-up ring. Into that screw a 49mm UV filter. (The step-up ring is needed to separate the filter from the extended lens.) Leave the UV filter on at all times. Throw away the lens cap.
Yes, the Olympus E-20N has a 62mm filter thread size. You can attach a standard 62mm lens filter directly on the lens. Color filters would not have an effect on the camera due to the auto white balance.
