    Are these filters any good…. to be honest all I’m doing is taking normal everyday pictures inside/outdoors. I have a buddy that said these were good so I got’em for all my lens. Any cons of having these on my stuff?

    i don’t know if those particular filters are any good, but it’s a good idea to shoot with a daylight/uv filter on your lens all the time. if nothing else, it acts as protection for your lens – instead of breaking a $1000 (or whatever) lens, that flying piece of gravel will crack a $30 filter.

    If you leave one on your lens most of the time, it’s a good idea to take it off if you’re shooting into a bright light source – most of the time any negative effect from a UV filter will be negligible, but they can increas flare.

    Always been a big fan of Hoya filters…better than Tiffen, but don’t break you like B+W. Sometimes, when shooting into a point light source, you’ll get a ghost reflection off the light bouncing off the front element and back up to the filter. Since the filters are multi-coated, that should alleviate some of it.

    That said, I don’t put any “protection” filters on my cheap lenses or macro lenses. They don’t need one more piece of glass to overcome.

    Ultimately they save on wear and tear…totally worth it
