Thread: Filter choice?

  1. #1

    Default Filter choice?

    Hey guys, I'm planning to get a Canon 24-105L lens.

    Burning a big hole in my pocket already.

    Therefore, besides getting a B+W filter
    what other recommendations of filter can i get?

    I think he was asking for alternatives in Brands instead of type of filter.

    Hoya is ur next best bet.

    Specifically, like the ones from the high end series, like Pro 1 Super HMC.

    since you burnt a big hole in your pocket, wat diff does it make to burn it slightly bigger for a better brand filter? Get those cheap filters and the IQ is going to suffer. might as well get a cheap lens.

    Haha, its not haze but UV-Haze. One word :P

    It filter out UV (ultra-violet) light that caused a bluish haze on some of our color pictures and loss of definition on distance objects.

    the bluish haze is called UV-Haze.


    i ord March 09..

    to be honest, my preference is to buy the cheapest piece of filter possible, and unscrew it togetehr with the lens cap and throw it into my bag

    as to why, i think the best iq you will get is without any filter.. uv filter anyways. but that's just a personal point of view.. and come to think of it, don't even need to put filter that way. oh well. since i have it already hurhur.

    Currently I see 2 diferrent schools of thought about putting a filter on the lens as a protective filter. One of the two says that: "what's the point of putting a 20 bucks filter on a delicate 1000 bucks lens". The other advocate the use of filter.
    Personally, I don't use filters except going to beaches.
