Da star 16-50mm


I am about to buy DA STAR 16-50MM lens and I want to use a filter mainly to prevent the lens from getting damaged. I need a single filter for all weather conditions and that could be used indoor or outdoor. Please suggest me the best available filter. What size of filter will fit this lens? will I be able to use the lens cap after putting the filter on?

Thanks a lot guys for your inputs....I finally ended up buying the Hoya HMC (Grey One)...Thought the IQ is not affected by the use of the filter, There is significant vignetting at at the 18 mm end even at the largest aperture with my 18-250 mm lens...unfortunately I cannot return it....I would recommend anyone with the 18-250mm looking for a Hoya UV filter to go in for the PRO1D with the 3mm ring to prevent any vignetting...all the best

The DA *16-50 takes 77mm filters. Your lens cap should just attach to the filter normally, just as it would to the end of the lens.
