my friend said that having bad filters will cause internal reflection. so what kind of brand or model has the best protective filters(those without special effects)? i have seen many people using some b+w filters, wondering why black and white filters are good?

B+W UV filters are good, you can't go wrong with them. Alternatively, you can try Nikon NC filter. Or a cheaper alternative would be Hoya HMC UV filter.

Yes, my apologies.

I always thought of them as GND. I paid a hefty premium for them.
As for protecting the front elements, I only use the Nikon NC. Very neutral.

72mm sigma UV filter will cost 65. The coating and finishing is great. Hoya have a few grades for UV filter. Cheapest one will cost 25 and most ex one is around 50. The latest one is Hoya Pro1 digital filter. It is a low profile one (very thin). The coating is different from others. More to green and blue colour while others are violet. I bought it for 65. How do u think of that one.

I am just a newbie. It was just my price research. I compared the reflection of fluorescent light, comparing which one reflects most. then i bought the Hoya Digital one. Basically the quality follows the price. Therefore, it depends solely on ur budget. Correct me if my assumptions are wrong.
