I've had my GR for six years and I bought the attachment for filters including the hood and never used them. I think the whole point of the GR is not fussing around with any attachments and just being able to spontaneously shoot. For me (and I've wasted money working this out) the answer is none.

The NiSi Master Kit for the GR3 includes a lens adapter and holder and several filters. It's adequate.

Nisi kits are actually very good optically. I have the "Pro" kit which isn't quite as secure as the Master kit (you have to make sure the lens does not retract during use, but I've never had it do so), but all of them are quite good for the money.

I sometimes use filters with the gr iii. One option I use is to screw in a 49mm filter to the GA1 adapter for the wide angle converter. My favorite for this setup is a storage nd filter for icm (intentional camera movement). Another option i tried, more for fun, is to attach a cokin p square filter system. But most often i use no filter in order to keep the camera compact.

I've got a GR ll. I have attached and left my GH-3 Adaptor on permanently. I have a B & W 49mm UV Haze filter on and it is on all the time. I also put one of my old (50 years +) Asahi Pentax 49mm lens caps on the end and it works very well. My hope is to keep dust from being sucked into the sensor , but also there is the protective aspect.

I know some will say well that isn't what the GR series is all can keep it thin, stick it in your pocket, etc...and that is fine. Each to his own , etc.

But along the same way...I find the GH-3 Adaptor, filter and cap don't take much extra room and I keep the GR a Vanguard zipper pouch which attaches to my belt. Also carry an extra battery and memory card too in the pouch.

It works well, protects the camera, functions as an extra precaution against dust and the GR ll is always ready to go...with me. Annnd....I've done before and after pix...with/without filter and I'll be danged if I can tell the difference....with or without filter with my eyes. But I always put on a top notch filter, usually B & W.
