Hey guys, I'm planning to get a Canon 24-105L lens.

Burning a big hole in my pocket already.

Therefore, besides getting a B+W filter
what other recommendations of filter can i get?

since you burnt a big hole in your pocket, wat diff does it make to burn it slightly bigger for a better brand filter? Get those cheap filters and the IQ is going to suffer. might as well get a cheap lens.

haha, thanks, will let you know, btw same date of collection? :)

i see that you have a Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 which covers mid range is it really important to get a 24-105L?
It's called the 'L-Virus' :bsmilie:

Haha, its not haze but UV-Haze. One word :p

It filter out UV (ultra-violet) light that caused a bluish haze on some of our color pictures and loss of definition on distance objects.

the bluish haze is called UV-Haze.


i ord March 09.. :rolleyes:

to be honest, my preference is to buy the cheapest piece of filter possible, and unscrew it togetehr with the lens cap and throw it into my bag

as to why, i think the best iq you will get is without any filter.. uv filter anyways. but that's just a personal point of view.. and come to think of it, don't even need to put filter that way. oh well. since i have it already hurhur.

Currently I see 2 diferrent schools of thought about putting a filter on the lens as a protective filter. One of the two says that: "what's the point of putting a 20 bucks filter on a delicate 1000 bucks lens". The other advocate the use of filter.
Personally, I don't use filters except going to beaches.
