I always shoot indoor sports and I have been requested to shoot a Golf outing for charity.

I have a clear filter on my 24-70 lens,I am trying to decide if I should get a UV or polarizing filter for shooting outdoors with this lens.
I will be shooting RAW if that matters.
My question is should I get a filter or not.
Thank you for any advice.

Some people feel that putting another piece of glass in front of the lens cuts down on the clarity and can produce unwanted reflections. Others like the protection offered to the front element of their lens from scratches. Just a trade off. The CP might add interesting effects depending on how much tele your lens is and where the light is coming from.

I used to use a CP filter to cut down on the reflection off of concrete, but stopped because it really wasn't worth it.
