X70 Lens Hood and a filter? Options?

Hi Guys!

So I am planning to order the X70 this week. Apparently it takes 62mm filters right? I would like to attach a UV filter but its hard to tell from the images if that can be done with the lens hood attached or not. It appears the threads are covered. Is it possible?

If not I am considering the Cavision MB385P 3x3 Matte Box with an adapter ring and filter. I sort of like the idea of a larger matte box while shooting outdoors (which is probably going to be a majority of my work), but not the bulk. Any thoughts?

62mm UV Filter attaches fine with the lens hood in place - enjoy!
