We cannot confirm the exact filter diameter size of the lens because it is not a published specification. There also is no compatibility information about the use of filters with this camera.

This is a big problem with such a long range zoom camera it has possibilities but Sony didn't provide us a proper handbook with the box. As I am not a professional now only way to learn all is trial and error method I have to test both 55mm and 58mm lens to see which fit in perfectly with my camera. Yet I believe sony should have provided a detail guidebook of this camera while purchasing.

The UV filter I purchased for mine is 55mm and works perfectly. I purchased a Rocketfish brand from BestBuy

On the EU site the filters are listed as compatible:

They are just missing yet in the Sony Style Store USA site:

I have also found that using a 55mm lens works great. It surprised me a little that Sony officials say they either don't know or won't endorse the use of it or any additional lens related item. Thanks to those of you who have provided the mm number size. I too was struggling to figure out the correct size of the camera's lens opening. Really appreciate you sharing your knowledge.
