Good UV filter on 14-54 II?
Aug 21, 2009

I didn't bother with a UV filter on the kit lenses as the lenses themselves aren't too much more expensive on ebay than a good UV filter.

But the 14-54 just arrived today. At US$550 compared with kit 14-42 at $110, I am thinking about using a UV filter to protect this more expensive lens.

I thought I would ask all of you with this lens, ... what have you decided for your lens: (1) add UV filter to protect lens or (2) don't add filter so as not to reduce image quality.

Thanks for your thoughts.
