    Cool Filters

    Just own a Oly C-750 recently....
    wan to ask something

    Do I need an original CP filter or ND or UV? or 3rd party Hoya one will do the job?

    How abt close up / macro filter? must get original one to get the best result? I heard 3rd party one will get lots of distortion..

    Can advice? Thanks

    If you value quality, buy the originals.

    Filter wise, you have the option of many brands. If you don't mind the compromise, a cheap filter will do. Rule of thumb is, buy the best you can afford. Hoya, B+W, Heliopan are some of the long time filter manufacturers.

    A UV filter will see more practical use for a start.

    get the 3rd party ones.
    HOYA is cheap and good.

    no point buying originals coz IMO it's just another piece of glass.

    sony sells their UV filter for $80 (2 filters for $160 if i'm not wrong)

    but a HOYA SHMC costs only $23... and it's not like a big difference in optical quality.
