Hi. Is possible to use with this lens a B+W UV filter model XS pro MRC nano, wich is thinner than regular filters, but thicker than slim version. Its thickness is 3.4 mm. I'm asking because that lens has slightly curved front element and the thinner ring could caused scratching a front glass. As seen here --> http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2013/10/bad-times-with-bad-filters

Thanks

I have that exact filter (010M) on my lens - no issues.  If you read the article closely, you'll see that Roger says that brand name filters are okay.

I will add that I’ve put another dozen brand name filters (Heliopan, B&W, etc.) on this lens with absolutely no problem and no sign of glass-to-glass contact.

P.S. Thanks for making me check my Amazon order to see how much I overpaid for my lens & filter compared to today's prices :'(

I see that nobody mentioned Hoya either for good or bad. Any info on their HD2 series regarding this issue?

I use Hoya HD clear filters on all my lenses, including the 24-70 II... No issues what-so-ever and by far my favorite filter to use. Thin framed, still threaded, easy as can be to clean (even better than the high end B+W's I have used) and no IQ loss at all to my eye.

But yeah, no rubbing on the front element.

Thanks for the information. I guess the HD2 will be no different than HD in that matter.

I have never used any filters on my lenses, since I`m shooting digital (2009). In analog times I uses filters, but in my whole fotografic life, I`ve never crashed a filter or a lense. So I don`t think that they are necessary - I think they damage the IQ of the lense.
