welcome to joy and expense world

- hood but search for orginal (or copy): they are bayonet type, screw-in type has some problems for uwide angle, cp filter use and easyness
- tripod,
- ggs lcd protector to protect lcd from your hand (at least for me)
- spare batteries
- rocket blower is a must
- lens pen for lens, micro-fibre cloth for body
- remote is a good accessory

Thanks for your answers!

I am now to get a couple of Hoya 58mm UV multi-coated glass filters for both of my lenses. A quick question. Is 58 mm the right size for both of my lenses (18-55 and 55-300 mm)? I noticed that there filters with different sizes and I am not sure what size is the appropriate.

The second thing is the camera bag. I am interested in a backpack. I like the LowePro SlingShot 202 AW but it is out of my budget right now (~$90). So far, I think the most cost-effective bag I have seen is the AmazonBasics Backpack AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR Cameras and Accessories (Black): Camera & Photo
Any other suggestions?

Yes!! get a UV filter - when your not using your camera - has stopped my lens from scratches etc..
