Hi, Please help to recommend a filter for Nikon D40.
I just want something simple to protect the lens from water/dust.
Also, please indicate the approximate price, my budget is <$30.

One more question, can i still use the original len cap (come with D40kit) with the filter?

Thank you very much

When talking about DSLR lenses, a filter is not for the camera, but for the lens (and yes, it's "LENS", not "LEN"). Different DSLR lenses will have a different lens diameter. In your case, just get a standard Hoya UV filter for your lens. You will still be able to use the lens cap.

than it should be filter for lens. Im not sure if filter can protect your lens from water. You can always buy a UV filter to protect your lens. Yes u can still use lens cap on filter. :)

The lens you are talking about, is it the 18-55mm VR? If so, the filter thread diameter is 52mm, and a simple Hoya Coated UV filter will cost you S$10, at shops such as John 3:16 (Funan, 5th floor). That's all you need.
