    Hi everyone,

    First time user. Just picked up an NEX-6L with the 16-50 lens and I would really like to pick up some filters and a petal lens hood, but I was thinking of stepping up from 40.5mm to 55mm.

    Has anyone done this already and if so, are there any issues/concerns I should be worried about?
    Sorry if this a lame question, I'm new with this set up and I just wanted to make sure this won't affect my photos/videos.

    Also, there seems to be a lot more options in the 55mm range.

    Any suggestions/comments would be much appreciated

    Should be no issues at all. Until I bought my CV lenses I only had one set of filters and they were 77mm. Stepped up from whatever to that as needed. And the CVs are stepped from 39 to 49 because 49 is the size the Sony 18-55 and 55-210 take and is much more common than 39.
