thin uv filter?

any suggestions for a thin 72mm uv filter that will allow a second screw on filter (cpl / cc / etc.,) if necessary?

I bought this filter recently for my Z5 (same seller, actually). Brand new, great quality, and it is very low profile. Will accept additional filters. I thought it was a good buy for a quality filter compared to the price of other filters on Ebay and definitely cheaper than B&H. Also bought a Vivitar Circular Polarizer (CPL) filter from the same outfit and if I remember they combined shipping. Like I said, I thought the quality was great on both items and have had no problems. I generally don't stack filters. I'll pull the UV filter off when I put on the CPL. I try to limit the extra glass in front of a great Sony lens. That's just me. I also have a Moose's filter that we have had for several years for use on a DSLR. A Moose's filter is a combination of a CPL and warming filter. Great for landscape and outdoor work. I use it on the Z5. You find someone selling them cheap on Ebay from time-to-time. Good luck.

thanks for that mark, appreciated.

i'm after one for a 'lens protector' really, but i have a matt box that i can use with a screw in 72mm adaptor - so i'm hoping there's enough thread left AFTER the uv to screw in the adaptor....

There should be enough thread left, but if it's a heavy matt box, you might want to look for a thicker filter as it might be a little more robust..
