The Essential Accessory Kit for Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 gives you a couple of good filters, along with the necessary 52mm lens adapter tube to enable you to mount those filters on your LX5. In addition to the UV filter, is also a very useful circular polarizing filter. Alone, you'd expect to pay $20 to $30 for a CPL filter with good optics. The CPL filter included in this kit is "Made in Chine" but with "Japan Optics" stamped on the filter itself. This makes me feel that the quality of the CPL filter is good.

Also included in the kit is a center-pinch lens cover with a funky little elasticized strap. The stretchy part is stretched around the adapter tube. The other end of the strap has a sticky sided disc that attaches to the front of the lens cap itself. I am concerned however that the metal sleeve that secures the elastic end may scratch the lens adapter tube. I will either use the lens cap without the strap, or fashion my own strap.

The Lens Hood is a nice touch but you cannot effectively use the lens hood at the same time as a filter since a large amount of vignetting will occur. (I'll upload a photo in the user gallery to demonstrate this) But when used instead of a filter, it does a good job keeping light from hitting the lens from a side angle, like when outside and the sun is blaring away from a side angle.

Then there is the other important component of the kit-the LCD Screen Protector. I already had a screen protector on my LX5 that I had purchased separately shortly after I bought the LX5. But it's still nice to have a "backup" in case the protector I have becomes scratched or breaks.

On my old film SLR cameras and my DSLR, I always have a UV filter attached to the front of my expensive lenses, mostly to protect the actual lens from damage.

EVERYONE who has a Lumix LX5 or the Leica-branded D-Lux 5 should get one of these kits. It's an incredibly good value- extension tube, lens hood, circular polarizing filter, UV filter, lens cap to fit the 52mm filters with strap, 2 microfiber lens cloths and an electrostatic shield for the LCD display, all for (at the time of writing) $25 including shipping. I got it because I wanted a lens hood which requires the extension tube and for those two items alone I don't think you could find a better price. I doubted the filters could be very good considering the total cost of the package, but although they're made in China, they're apparently made for a Japanese company or with Japanese glass ("high index optical glass" according to the packaging) because they're engraved with "Japan" on the ring and their quality seems superb. Don't miss this!

Product arrived as promised. Although it took a little work to get all the parts to fit together (there are no instructions included), it was worth it. Items are well made and fit my Panasonic LX5 perfectly. The other thing I liked (besides the price), is that I can use the sunshade at the full 24mm wide lens setting.

Good products, great value. I hadn't yet figured out that I needed to remove the lens ring before putting on the lens adapter, but I contacted them and they set me straight. Glad to order from them again.

Pros: good bargain for multiple items included in the package

Cons:
- wrong filter shipped (instead of the polarizer filter I really wanted, a star-4 effect filter was shipped, which I don't have much use for). Otherwise, I would've given this a 4- or 5-star review (absolutely no pun intended).
- inability to fit the filter and the lens hood w/o having the corners vignetting at wide-angle = kinda useless for my purpose
- knowing that I paid for this package than the previous purchasers. 25 vs 30.

I bought these accessories as a result of M. Erb's fine video. One caveat: the Kiwi metal lens adaptor is the center piece for the plastic hood; screw on the adaptor (take care, these are aluminum threads) and the hood screws and attaches to the adaptor, then the filters attach thereto. I was impressed by the inexpensiveness of these accessories and recommend them to any owner of the Lumix DMC-LX5, a superb camera.

Everything works very well in this little package except for the lens hood. Two problems with the lens hood:

1. Vignetting happens at wide angle range (24mm). As you zoom in at 1X and beyond, vignetting disappears.
2. The lens shade cannot be screwed onto the 52mm UV filter. If you want to use the lens shade, you have to take off the 52mm filter and screw it on the adapter tube directly.

Overall, I'm happy with the purchase, but wish the lens shade were completely functional.

Tulip hood protrudes to far and can be seen in the corners of each aspect ratio setting of the camera.
Filters are sub par but will protect your lens.
I'm using the original Panasonic lens cap keeper string, not the one in this kit.
Rear LCD protection is the best part of the kit.
