Clear filter saves my lens!
Jun 1, 2011

When my camera fell, it landed front element first on my 18-200 VRII causing the lens cap to get stuck on the filter. Considering the fall was onto concrete and I could hear parts rattling around, I feared the worst.

Bottom Line: the filter is a total but the front element was undamaged.
