I'm thinking of buying the Lumix FZ10. There are many types of filter available and which types should I get for a start?

Use the lens hood provided. You'll need 72mm filters to fit.

Planning to use the lens hood provided. Is the 72mm filter readily available? Are they expensive? What about polariser?

They are 2-3 times more expensive that those 52-58mm ones.

I think juzthin is right, the UV is a must. It will protect the dust from getting into the lens.

Hi,

That is bad news. What if I get a adapter to fit those 58 mm filters, would it affect the picture taken because of the smaller size filter?

adaptor for 58mm filters? don't think will have vignetting... even have also quite slight lor...

if u intend to use a variety of filters? better buy adaptor instead of using lens hood as one. price difference of filter quite big. eg.
72mm UV - $28
62mm UV - $15

but then price of adaptor probably eats up the cost-savings anyway. haha...
