    If I have the money, I'll get the most expensive filter for my lenses too. But too bad I am not, so hoya is the choice for me.

    If I can only afford a $120 canon ef50mm f1.8, then I'll most likely buy a kenko(buying an expensive b+w filter that cost 50% of my lens price doesn't make sense)

    If I can afford the canon 50mm f1.4 at $500, then I'll go for Hoya
    If I can afford the canon 50mm f1.2L at $2500, then what's a $100 b+w filter right?
    Agreed but I think cheap lens like EF50mm F1.8 dun even need a filter if you intention is to protect it coz i think is purely a waste of $ and time, break den throw away lo.

    I think I'm the rare breed who dislike filters, no protection filters even for $1000 lens. Lens hood is a must, filters I only get CPL which I insist must be of good grades.

    So far no issues on lens coating, a blower and lens pen cleans well.
