Hello All! Just treated myself to the Olympus SP-720UZ Camera. I'd like to purchase a lens cover to protect the lens, However I'm not quite sure what size cover to purchase...I purchased a 55mm and was too large...I thought they were all a standard size.....Any one out there familiar with this camera???? Any feed back would be appreciated..Thanks & Happy Holidays!

Could it be 49m/m. But I have just looked on the internet, and the photo I saw of the camera, It looked like there was no thread to attatch the screw on filter. Say a u/v filter. Is there a thread on the end of the lens?.
There isn't a thread on the lens, so you would be unable to attach a standard screw on filter
Thank you for your response......You are correct, I thought there was a thread..... there is no thread, So I guess I'll have to be very careful.......I'm not happy about this......Thank you again!!
Forgive me if I am wrong. But I thought I got a glimpse of some form of filering that the camera can do. I don,t know if this is what you were after. I did not read up on it all.
Maybe take it to a camera shop and see if anything fits appropriately?
Most cameras either come with a lens cap to protect the lens - or in the case of some compacts, the lens retracts when the camera is switched off.
It does come with a lens cap that you can leash to the strap. However, when the cap is off (and even when the camera is switched off) the front of the lens is very vulnerable as there is little or no recess on the lens barrel
