Just curious what OTAP does. I used to like the idea of them, but now not so much.
I have 77 and 82mm from B+W but I rarely use them
yeah i have a 77mm rodenstock that was on my wide angle. great quality UV filter, but i'm constantly taking it off for a polarizer or ND. such a pain.
time to sell it.
uv filters are useless.
I have them but I don't use them.
I've managed to amass quite a collection of filters that I've received with lenses I bought second-hand. They just take up space in the closet.
I'm not a pro, so I SHOULD start using them
I've got like $700 in UV filters and I have no idea where they are
edit: which is stupid considering I don't know where a single front or rear lens cap is
god my gear is busted
yeah but I dont know how it affects the image. I just put it on because of High school photo "put on a uv filter to protect the lens" etc
I have 77mm B+W filters on my expensive glass...I figure if there's no degrading of IQ then the extra protection can't hurt right?
I have a terrible habit of accidentally touching the front glass so I have one on my 28-135 and 18-55.
to be honest, i could swear i saw my wide angle soften up a bit when i put the UV up front
i pretty much never have lens caps on anything
"She made me wear a UV filter"
Don't use UV filters.
Had a dream once, and my lenses demanded to always raw-dog the elements.
As a guy, who am I do deny my lenses that freedom.
This subforum =
Don't use em. Use lens hoods for protection.
I don't use them
i've used the one i have once, i was shooting some shots of a painter spraying clear coat on a bumper. should've used it a second time because i now have one spot of clear coat on the front of my 17-40
Hoods are my friend.
Depends on the conditions. If its a wedding, no UV filter, if I'm near the ocean, its rainy, or I'm at the zoo with my family and a million people are bumping into my camera then yes I use them.
i have them on my 85mm 1.4 and 28-70 2.8, its for protection, doesn't affect the iq
i hate UV filters. i dont use them. i lose all the feeling.
Ive found myself actually taking them off my lenses lately.
