Hi Guys,

I just ordered a lensmate filter adapter for my sx20 and was wondering if the sun pak 58mm polarizer would fit into it?

Any feedbacks on this?

Thanks!

Tim

I would try to find the thread size - if they are the same, should work. I ordered the Bowman adapter and filter kit just to avoid any issues with compatability.

Yes, the Lensmate filter adapter for the SX1/10/20 takes any standard 58 mm filters. But if you haven't gotten the SunPak filter yet, I'd suggest you read the "Protective Filter FAQ" sticky - not all brands of filters are equally good.

If you are getting the adapter to allow you to install filters on your SX20, you don't need to go this route. I installed a 52mm screw in filter and it fits perfectly. No need for step-up rings.

The SX20's not actually threaded to take filters; you're pretty much relying on the soft plastic to hold the filter on and it'll be very easy to cross-thread and strip out the lens barrel.

Forcing 52mm filters might damege the lens so I think its better go for Lensmate 58mm Filter Adapterexternal link or Janco 58mm Filter Adapterexternal link . Safer that way.

Yep, a few people will swear to you that those are threads on the SX20/SX10, but they're not. Get the adapter.
