Recently my 18-55kit lens went kapow on me and so I'm going to upgrade to a Canon 17-55mm f2.8 for my Canon1000D.
I need a UV filter to protect my lens but I am afraid that it would degrade my image quality/be difficult to clean or be prone to scratches.
I noticed a thread comparing B+W to Hoya filters and after reading it seems that the former is a better choice? What about Canon filters? Can anyone shed light on this issue and suggest which brand/type of filter i should get for my lens?
In addition, I also want to buy a circular polarising filter. Do you have anything to recommend? Again, image quality is my main priority.
Where can I buy the filters from and how much do they cost?
Thanks in advance, everyone. Your help is greatly appreciated!~ (:
