    Normally, the first filter I will buy is UV and Circular Polarizer. The price of filter varies, depends on the brand and the diameter of the lens. Most camera stores offer filter.

    Few things to note:
    Brands:
    B+W, Hoya but now I refrain from buying B+W as it is too expensive. I have kenko too.

    Stores:
    Cathay, Allan Photo, TCW, there's another in Shaw tower.

    I have Hoya Super-HMC UV for all my lenses. Previously, 2 of them had Hoya HMC then upgraded to Super... for no real reason actually, just 'feeling'. Haha...

    Two of them were from B&H (US) and the rest from eBay.
