Is there a 49mm polarizer that fits within the FE55 hood?

    I just got a FE55 and I'm loving it. It isn't world better than my Contax G 45mm but the OOF transition and higher contrast do give it an extra pop—plus the silent AF is everything I hoped it be.

    However, I'm trying to find a polarizer that will let me keep the hood attached. I realize I won't be able to turn the polarizer with a hood attached but in my experience once I've found the right rotation for a scene I don't futz with it much. The lens seems very flare proof but sticking another couple glass elements in front seems like all the more reason for some protection.

    I bought an inexpensive Zomei filter because it claimed to be ultra thin but it still won't fit. Anyone found anything that will? (If you've tested it to work with the FE28 that would be a bonus because I suspect that will be my next purchase)
