I ordered a 65mm lens filter, and my camera has a 58mm lens. Would the filter fit because I ordered it online and I'm not sure if it will work with my camera?

    a 65mm thread will not fit on a 58mm thread - only a 58mm thread will. if you still want/need the 65mm filter, go for a step-up adapter. – flolilo Jan 10 '18 at 15:34

    Hey amr - welcome to Photo.SE. Please provide us some detail to better answer your question. What camera system (Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Fuji, etc.)? What lens are you buying a filter for? Do you have other lenses that the filter should also work for? – OnBreak. Jan 10 '18 at 16:08
  • Wait, is the focal length of the lens 58mm, or is the lens's filter thread diameter 58mm? – scottbb Jan 10 '18 at 19:45

Seems that you have a lens with a 58mm filter thread, and you have ordered a 65mm lens filter. You will need a 58-65mm step-up ring/adapter in order to make this work. If you can find one, it would have 58mm threads that screw into your lens, and 65mm threads that the filter can then screw into.
