Will this persuade you NOT to use filters when you DON'T need them?

Sorry, but for trying to take a shot that would make using a filter look terrible, if this is the worst it gets, it's not very convincing. What's the spot in the upper left that shows in all shots?

Cool test but I never use UV filters. Gone are the days of needing them. I use the crap out of ND and CPL.

I think you need to repeat that experiment with the lens cap over the filter. ;)

I almost allways have a filter on my lenses.

Because of the filter, I allways have a clean lens when I need it, by just unmounting the filter.

Well, that's it then... wait... what was the point? Use them? Don't use them?

I use mine for coasters for my soda pop.

well guys, I thought I made some misunderstanding here..
I just kind of joked on what my experiments were, left the question and gave my advices.
I was not trying to show the worst cases to disute filters were bad. But typically in the evening with complicated light sources, uv filter really did bad jobs, also found in photos taken ith my 24 105.
Good filters definitely produce almost non-sensible degration in most cases, but when it happens and you dont't notice that, its a loss. especially in case you don't need one, like you put your lens on a tripod, weather is fine, something like that..
just my opion, sorry for the absurdness.


Fly me away.

We're not saying you have to have flair, but we're encouraging it.

UV filters take photos you will delete and turn them into photos you will delete.

...or sometimes it takes a shot you would delete, and makes you go, eh, maybe.....
Do you see Brian-a over there with her flair?
