SX70 HS manual says Lens Cap won't work w/protector lens, but...

Before I buy the Canon lens adapter ring (FA-DC67A) and Canon 67mm Protective Filter, I want to confirm that even though the SX70 manual says you cannot use a lens cap with these attached to the camera, the Canon 67 mm lens cap (Canon E-67 II 67mm Lens Cap) should attach to the 67mm Protective Filter, right?

thx for any feedback...

As far as I know, as far as the lens is concerned, the SX-70 is identical to the SX-60 (which I owned).  I always put a protective filter on my cameras, so I got an adapter and had no issue putting a filter on my camera, and also a conventional lens cap.  I did not put on a massive 67mm filter, I got a metal 58mm filter adapter from eBay and it worked perfectly.  With a UV filter attached there was no vignetting as long as I got a slim-line style.  The smaller adapter size is much less bulky and the filters are cheaper.  If you go to the site and do a search for '58mm Metal Lens Filter Adapter Ring for Canon Powershot SX70 HS SX60 HS SX540 HS' you will find what you want.

The manual say the "included" lens cap cannot be used. I am guessing the included lens cap is not 67mm.

Yup, John, it does say "included lens cap" in the pdf of the user guide. I thought I saw it somewhere implying any lens cap -  maybe at some online help stuff at Canon. But yeah, the included lens cap won't go onto a 67mm anything, or the 58mm adapter and protector filter I'm going with... Thx!
