    Hmm... I think this may not be the right sub-forum. I'd say go for Nikon if you're considering B+W. Otherwise, the new Hoya Pro1 Digital series isn't too bad considering its price.

    I would always go for Nikon.. if no have then I will go for B+W. But all also depends on the cost of the lens. Like the 50mm f1.8 and my 18-55mm.. I did not put on any Filter..

    I'm using Hoya Pro1 Digital MC protector on my 18-55VR. There seems to be less reflection from the Hoya when I compare it with an older L37c.

    Yes.. There's even a slim version (CPL2) so that it won't cause vignetting on wide angle lenses. ND8 should be available also. Check with Cathay, Lords, Max Photo or TK Photo. AP have to order if they are willing to order for you.

    You can try Nikon NC or Hoya Pro1 Digital MC Protector for protection.

    25A Red for B&W. And stack it on top of a polariser for max dramatic effect. But this is more for old skool film cameras.

    For me, I choose Hoya Pro1 Digital filters.

    Just because.

    since we're on the topic of filters, wondering if any of u have experiences using these filters with a s.wide angle lens like tokina 12-24, or sigma 10-22,
    understand that its not just about the quality of the lens,but the thickness of it as well, that may cause vignetting at the sides..
    out of the 3, b+w mrc, nikon nc, and hoya pro1, which wld be better for such a lens
    thanks!
    hope im not getting out of the topi.

    It also depends on the design of the lens itself.

    I've got the Sigma 10-20mm, 77mm filter diameter. Hoya Pro1 UV, no problems.
    But I've also got the Sony 16-80mm, 62mm dia. and I get severe vignetting with Pro 1 Digital. It's thin, but apparently not thin enough.

    Best is to take your camera + lens down to shop, mount the filter and take some test shots with it.

    It depends on the diameter.
