    Is there any difference in price of UV and NC filter from the same brand?

    For digital, UV filter is not so important (IR is bad for digital).

    But, since B+W UV also said as a Haze filter, it could be good for Singapore .

    When kids touch your front element or accidentally you scratch your front element, you will say "aiyah, I should put filter on it!".

    B+W = BMW in filters...
    If u dun mind the price, u can get tat. At least a filter in front to prevent any scratch. If u have a filter n it is scratched, change a new one...
