Just another option: I have the 3040 and the Tiffen adapter tube (3000AD). 43mm UV fits right on the tube (my UV is a Tiffen as well)without need for step up ring. 3040 lens cap fits UV fine. Olympus couldn't have done it better.

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.

As an Olympus user myself, I would not advise even if you could find an adapter. Your 620 is a 4/3 series camera with is a different frame size than the old 35mm equipment which means you will not get ideal photo quality. Yea, new lens are expensive, but losing good shots to sub par equipment costs you more in the long run in frustration.

What size uv filter do i need for an olympus sp-570uz camera ?

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

Macro lens for the 3040Z

I have very good experience with the original Olympus Macro Conversion lens with the CLA1 adapter. No visible distortion and no loss of contrast. The only problem I can imagine is the lighting of it all. You need to come real close! The internal flash of the camera will not work properly because the "huge" macro lens will cast a shadow. Some kind of external light source will be needed and manual corrections in the white balance have to be made too. The 3040 is a fine camera and I use it at least twice a week, but it still lacks some of the features of my old OM4 camera! Think about the easy focusing (manual) and the use of a ring flash! Because that is what you need.

Telephoto lens for digital camera

It will not work because it is the wrong thread size. Here is info on the Olympus TCON-17 lens for the 5050: TCON-17 (1.7X) Telephoto Conversion Lens Extend the capabilities of your digital camera with the TCON-17 Telephoto Converter lens. This telephoto lens will increase the magnification of your subject by 1.7x when your camera lens is set to the telephoto position. This will help you bring in the subject when you can't get closer, for example, shooting sports or concerts. Please see below for additional items required to attach this lens to your camera. The following models require the CLA-1 and 43-55mm Step-Up Ring: C-2000/2020/2040/3000/3020/3030/3040/4000/4040/5050 Zoom ....... The video lens is too small (diameter). If you found one with a 43mm thread and put it on the 5050, you would experience severe vignetting (clipping of the corners of the photo).

Filters

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.
