Your lens cap protects your lens while shooting photos?

I've been shooting for years professionally and I've shot with both UV filter on and off - I've never really been obsessed about it either way.

Downside of a good quality UV filter is that it has the potential to drop the quality of your photos by an amount so insignificant that you honestly probably wouldn't even be able to find it even pixel-peeping on a big monitor at 100% zoom.

Upside is that you can wipe the filter down with a t-shirt without being worried that you're damaging the front element of your camera or messing with the fragile coating on more expensive lenses.

I've gone without a UV filter for a while now, but I picked this up because it seems to be high quality and it's cheap. I'll probably drop it if it seems to be affecting my photos in any appreciable way, but I'm always happy to get some extra protection on my lenses.



Hood's bulky and it doesn't protect from the only thing that's ever really scratched up my lenses - tiny, tiny pieces of sand or hard dust that get rubbed into the front element when I'm cleaning it in the field.

This thing is cheap enough for me to justify picking up "just in case". Worst case, if I find it to really affect my photos (I doubt it), I'll use it in emergency scenarios or when I think I might shoot in sandy locations.

A lot of what you hear about UV filters messing up your contrast and detail are about junk filters, and while it's true, to an extent, to even expensive filters, many of the issues you may run into are very situational or only likely to be detected by some heavy duty pixel-peeping.

Why is everyone talking about filters like their only task is protection? Y'all never shot hazy pics before?

For people who think others who use protection filters are dumb, may I suggest they post their awesome pictures so that others can admire and imagine how even a good quality protection filters will screw those up. Smilie

In digital photography, the haze effects of UV are diminished, but definitely still there in many settings. Give it a shot!
