$105.50 is really expensive
do i really really need?
what's wrong with a super cheap one?
- You should buy the expensive one to protect your expensive lens.
- You should also buy a less expensive clear filter to protect your expensive clear filter.
- You should also buy the cheap clear filter to protect your other clear filters.
- Don't forget to remove ALL of the clear filters before taking a picture, because they WILL degrade the quality of your images.
Or, you can just use a lens hood to protect your lens properly, and it will actually improve your images, instead of making them softer like a filter does.
The noobs always buy the protective filters because the salesman in the camera store, who makes more profit from a filter than he does from a camera or lens, convinces them they need one... and then laughs his a$$ off when they leave the store.
