What size do i need to get and what brand and trying to get something cheap at first to play with and then upgrade to the better filter.

look at the size of the filter thread on front of the lens... and why spend extra money on getting a cheap one then upgrading?

I believe its 52mm threads...

and B&W offer AWESOME filters.

You need a 52mm filter.

General Brand

You usually want to purchase the biggest filter size to fit your lens collection and get step up rings for the smaller ones. That way you have filters for all your lenses. Step up rings are a lot cheaper then buying multiply filters.

I'm confused (but also drunk), you bought a 52mm filter and it doesn't fit the Canon 50mm 1.8 mkII? It should, because it requires a 52mm filter...

no reason to apologize... :-) Yeah, sometimes they send the stuff you didn't order.. sucks when you are in a hurry to get it. Hope you get it straightened out soon.

Hi Shane. Got your PM. I was a bit confused why it didn't fit...but then saw your post here. Bummer that they sent you the wrong one...but glad you figured out the problem.

Good luck!

I vote for Hoya - and there are various levels of quality. Don't throw cheap on top of expensive - expect to pay around $60. Also, you should remove your UV when you use polarizer.
