pardon me but cheapo filters are like dat... u should invest on a multi coated UV filter to lessen flaring or ghosting. :)

glaring is due to the internal reflection of light bet the lens and the filter which got reflected to the sensor. Solution, throw away the filter or get multicoated (=$$$$) filter.

PS: I used mine for 'special' effect ;)

OK. Looks good, the dots are symmetric on both side.

Unlikely to get away even with expensive filter. Use hood instead.

alright. what will you guys recommend? a budget multi coat??
You have already a budget filter, isn't the result obvious? Putting on another budget won't help much unless you want to get more flare for more artistic effects. Either 'go naked' (which is the way the lens was designed anyway) or read up filter reviews and increase your budget.

I all the time have a UV filter permanently on on every nite shoot i do and flaring is very seldom.

yeah filter important to protect lens from dust/knocks etc... the more times you clean your front glass the more chance of damaging it accidentally. use a hood, get a proper filter or be very careful when you not using UV and replace it right after? haha become screw-on lens cap -.-

If they quote you the same filter for 80 bucks, would it sound more convincing?
If in doubt leave it out. At least get the exact type of the filter (not only brand, but specific type), check here for opinions, feedback and also price verification. Mass Sales section and Filter Price Guide (see Marketplace) give good indications.
