how long have u been using ur FZ5?
take a good look at ur lens adaptor. is the tip of the lens adaptor curve in?
if so, just sand off abt 1mm, confirm ur filter will fit as tight as a virgin........................;)

since is only a month, follow my earlier instruction.
the cause is because of the curve preventing the filter to lock on to the screw thread

I experienced it on my FZ5 also ler..
during my cambodia trip, it drops dunno how many donkey times until i get so fed up..
but the UV filter i bought is 2nd hand dunno wat brand one..
so when i reached Thailand, bought a HOYA UV at 10SGD.. haha.. tried that and it fit well ler.. so now i have no problem with UV filter dropping out again liao...
