    Nope you don't need to use an adapter to mount filter. Just screw on a 46mm filter will do.

    No it will not increase the size and can only be seen upon close inspection.

    Actually... FZ20 size still quite all rite. I own one and the size is ok for me. But not the FZ50! Yike! That too big! Looking at the size and price, might as well get a D40x...

    well those fz5,7,8,18 are mean to keep as small as possible yet not compromising on the zoom. it pretty much defeats the purpose if they "enlarge" if just for the sake of letting you put on 55mm filter.
    anyway small to you might not be to some.

    mount a step-up ring to your convert, when you need it just screw directly to the 46mm thread... would pretty much defeats the purpose of wide converter if you actually zoom.

    ... not really cos you'll gain in terms of wide angle coverage and loose a little on the long end

    true enough, but in that case your max zoom will probably be just about 350mm (35equiv) if a 0.7x converter was used, it somehow also add bulk to the camera.
    beside, imho 28mm should be good enough for most application.

    True... My TZ3 is small but very uncomfortable with it coz of no manual setting. Now FZ18 i complain again bout filter size... FZ50 i complain too big... DSLR i complain of constant lens changing... Hiazz... Guess human nv satisfy.....

    try to hunt around CP for Hoya ones... the uncoated or single coated one should cost <$12... the higher HMC or sMHC should be about 20-30+

    Hoya filter easy to find but they are really difficult to clean... They shd apply their easy clean coating on optical lenses into their filter as well...

    just be careful, there are quite a number of "not as famous" brand out there with filter that is easy to clean as there is no coating on it...

    Even famous brand like the Nikon 5508 (46mm Filter Set with UV, Polarizer, ND-4 & ND-8). Cost about USD50. Sound pretty cheap at first until you realize they are all uncoated filters...
