is it a need or a purpose to buy UV lens?
or do you guys suggest something else similar which does the same purpose and more worthy to spend on?

advice please.
thanks ;)

UV filters are supposed to block out UV rays.

Whether it works or not or if there's any difference, it's very hard to tell. It's reasonably cheap (around $10 for a Hoya UV 52mm thread) so won't make you broke if you bought it.

For me, I use it, since I have it.

;)

Up to individual preferences. I can't tell the difference either.

Some ppl fit in a UV filter just for protecting the main camera lens. If your cam is something like the A10~A40 series which the lens will self retract, then it might not be necessary to get one.

BTW, ur avatar is very cute and funny :D

Actually, the UV filter cuts down the distant haze in landscape pictures taken on sunny days because it absorbs the UV radiation which causes the haze.
