Just own a Oly C-750 recently....
wan to ask something:)

Do I need an original CP filter or ND or UV? or 3rd party Hoya one will do the job?

How abt close up / macro filter? must get original one to get the best result? I heard 3rd party one will get lots of distortion..

Can advice? Thanks:gbounce:

If you value quality, buy the originals.

Filter wise, you have the option of many brands. If you don't mind the compromise, a cheap filter will do. Rule of thumb is, buy the best you can afford. Hoya, B+W, Heliopan are some of the long time filter manufacturers.

A UV filter will see more practical use for a start.

get the 3rd party ones.
HOYA is cheap and good.

no point buying originals coz IMO it's just another piece of glass.

sony sells their UV filter for $80 (2 filters for $160 if i'm not wrong)

but a HOYA SHMC costs only $23... and it's not like a big difference in optical quality.
