Thread: Choosing UV filter?

    Default Re: Choosing UV filter?

    can i just get the filter just to protect the lens?

    is it stupid to take off the filter when taking pix?

    for that matter, i am eyeing a low end one, perhaps hoya?

    why bother if that is the case? just use a lens cap then...

    Don't bother with low end ones. You are already compromising IQ by putting on a filter because it introduces ghosts and flares, why make it worse by getting a low-end one?

    Like what ExplorerZ said, you will be better off using the hood and lens cap.

    As mentioned loads of times...

    BUY the best you can afford. B+W, Nikon NC, Super HMC Hoya... nothing below these, IMO...

    Get B+W, that's the best bet.
