Thread should be titled "What slamming a UV filter on the corner of a table looks like". ;)

A hood can offer good bump protection too.

I work with a lot of younger people and it always amazes me how many of them have broken iPhone screens (or any smartphones). I'm careful with my gear so I never have problems with breaking my glass even without UV filters. Just be careful with your gear and use the hood...you don't need UV filters.

Err, sweeping statement.

I live next door (well, 7km) from one of the world's most active volcanos - Mount Sakurajima, Southern Japan. She erupted, a ton of nasty, abrasive, volcanic dust which swept through the city more than 900 times last year!!!!

OK, so I would never put a "UV" filter on my lenses....but I ALWAYS have high quality "protector" filters in place, because only a damn fool wouldn't!

Regards,

Simon :)

Very true. Very very true. That is step number one.

Unfortunately, I was shooting with my 24-70 running backwards while a bridezilla was rushing out the door, late as usual, and backed my secondary camera into the table. Working and playing are two very different situations.

Sometimes it's things you can't control, I'm 23 so I consider myself to still be young and stupid.

I once had someone throw a tape measure and it landed on my phone, looked like the screen had broken. But those cheap 10 cent screen protectors saved it.

Well... when a lens goes face-first into something, my experiences have taught me that if i didn't have one on, I'd be a very sad man. Let alone rain, or synthetic materials destroying the lens coating. Everyone has a right to their own opinion though.

what are your experiences with the lens going face first into something without a filter?

this post has a few videos of guys slamming their lenses into each other...with filter, with hood, and without both...people need to realize just how strong the front element is...

also this shows how hard a front element is on the cheapo 50mm f1.8:

Some have said:
"$100 filter on a $1000 lens = a $100 lens"
"Why shoot through the window if you can open it?"
Volcanos, salt water, sand, etc... a good reason.
Everyday normal use - hoods.

I am not sure why people wanna go naked. I will never ever take filters off from my lenses. If you have tons of money or if you have sponsors go ahead and don't use filters but I can tell you from personal experience that my 17-40 survived a 8 feet fall just because I have a BW filter and hood on my lens. Both hood and filter died but my lens survived.

This happened when I was taking pictures last winter and it was snowing the surface was quite slippery. I was walking with my camera mounted on my tripod and I slipped and off went my camera with my 17-40 lens and tripod. It was a really bad fall (and accident do happened...doesn't matter how careful you are) and my hood and filter was totally smashed. I have to pull filter out with clippers as it was bent and I can't take it off otherwise. If you want to get good mileage from your hard earn money.....please keep your filter and hood on.

Thanks, Pendu

What....so you attach your children to electronic devices and then hang them around your neck with a strap?

Glad you're not my father!!!
