Filter for 40 XS and k01

Hi all. My wife figures out a pretty neat way to put a filter/hood(small one)/and lens cap on the 40XS: The filter is called 'The Digital Guardian' in 27mm size(it's a UV filter), and has a built-in small hood. The hood is part of the aluminum filter ring and it take a 37mm pinch cap. Pictures included:

Double oops: The hood is bought separately, does not come with the filter.

Why not just put a step up ring on it for $5 that you can get nearly anywhere? One of the reasons I kept the 40 Limited instead of the XS is that it takes 49mm, because 27mm is so limiting.

Ah nice. I ordered a massa 27mm filter as a cap replacement some months ago, but never received it. I thought Id keep it on for protection and just remove it if it degraded IQ too much.
Can you post a sample 100% crop taken without and with the filter/hood combo?

You have some options for the 27mm thread.

A nice and cheap hood:

Here my noob questions are, after my deep research on the internet, i'm still very unexperienced.
My choice would be a K01 right now, i'll probably buy them.

Is there any chance to use the XS lens with large polarizing filter?

It will be awkward, but it should work. If there are too many step up/down rings and filters, it can cause vignetting, but it probably won't with a 40mm f2.8 lens.
You can even use the 52mm filter handheld in front of the lens btw.
