Also sometimes required for weather sealing on some L lenses, and good for having somethign disposable for when you get showered in mud by an MX bike or rally car ;)

Instances like that are about the only time I use a UV filter - basically for "splashing stuff" protection, where ever that might be. Even the best UV filters seem have some flare or reflections.


My first real camera was a Canon F1. That was a long time ago.

Sigh.... Read the sticky...

FWIW I have used for years and recommend B+W MRC F-Pro filters.

Agree, splashing stuff or crowded places or some activities, etc where lens needs some protection
