yeah, I don’t fault people that choose to go with the uv for protection… it’s a choice… but if money was a major consideration…. I’d say skip it, be careful and put your money into a decent polarizer… circular polarizers are a safe bet if you’re unsure about your cameras af… a rigid lens hood will protect your lens very well and add flare control as well.
but buy the best filters and filter systems you can afford. B+W, hoya are good brands that I trust. for polarizers and nd’s. I also have a cokin system that I use for thier effect filters..and color grads and grad nd’s…
Oh, and newest weapon for me… Go-pro. for the cost of a decent filter, the Hero 960 can go places you know your regular camera might not survive.
