    My sister bought a Sony Cyber -Shot DSC-F717 and she purchased the
    VCL-HGD1758 Telephoto Lens 58mm 1.7X to go with it. The lens if threaded in
    the front, apparently to accept a filter, but we can't find what size it is.
    There is no listing for a filter size, but has anyone attached a filter to
    this lens? And if yes, what size filter is it? Thanks for any help.

    Sorry Prowler,
    The lens does not have a thread on the front.
    The inside diameter is 87.8mm / 5mm deep.

    Ok. I didn't actually look at it, my sister told me it was threaded.So I
    guess no filter available for this lens. Thanks for the help.
