I just got a Canon Rebel XTi...I want to get a UV filter for it. The lense that came with it is an 18-55mm. What size UV filter should I get for it? The guy at the store told me a 58 mm would fit, but it is too small.

Check your lens. It should say right on it what size it is. I have a 52mm, a 58mm and my telephoto is 68mm. Or you can take the lens in with you to the shop and they'll fit it.

Thanks, Labby...I guess I'll have to take in into the store and see. It says 58mm, but that doesn't fit...or maybe I'm not putting in on right.

It screws into the top of the lens. Looking at my smaller lenses, they don't have the size on them that I can see. I must have taken them in.

Yay! I figured it out. Thanks for the help...I was imagining it would fit over the top...now I see how it screws on (with the rim facing out instead of being the part that screws onto the lens).
