1.0 out of 5 stars this lens kit does not fit the SX30 IS camera., June 6, 2011
This review is from: Essential Lens Kit For The Canon SX30IS SX30 IS SX40HS SX40 HS Digital Camera Includes HD .43x Wide Angle Lens + 52MM Close Up Lens Kit Includes +1 +2 +4 +10 + 3pc High Res Filter Kit (UV-CPL-FLD) + Lens Hood + MicroFiber Cleaning Cloth (Electronics)
This lens kit is a huge disappointment. I cannot get the filters to fit on the lens for the SX30 IS. As others have written, it butts up against the existing lens, but will not screw in. One filter came with an adaptor, but it does not come off. The lens hood also does not fit. I ordered a 58mm lens adaptor and that fits my camera perfectly. Now that i know that, i will order the 58mm UV filter. All of this has been very frustrating. No one should have to 'force' the filters onto the lens. Not for this model camera for sure.

So are you saying that they would fit much better if I bought a 58mm lens adapter?

I don't know about the SX30. But the SX40-HS which I just bought requires a 67 mm adapter (from Canon) and it fits a 67 mm filter. I am not sure how these 52 mm filters can "fit perfectly" into the camera?
