    Do a search on filter discussions. There are tons of them. In short, you won;t go wrond with Hoya SHMC or B+W filters. Available at Cathayphoto.

    (yes, I know those thread sizes are really rare...CP doesn't have them...)

    The Ultra Thin filters from HOYA, do not have a filter thread in front and hence the lens cap cannot grip the filter thread and you cannot attach the lens cap on it.

    I always dun use a lens cap and just dump my lens onto my camera bag. Lens cap is very troublesome and each time you are taking picture, you need to remove it. Since the filter is there to protect the front elements of the lens, the use of lens cap is a waste of time!

    So do you use disposable filters?
