Re: UV or Polarizer 52mm filter?

A polariser will cut any UV as well as doing what it is advertised as doing. But bear in mind that UV is by definition invisible to human eyes. You can't tell how much there may be bouncing around even on dull days. Modern digital sensors do not 'see' anything like as much UV as film emulsions used to, when it often showed up loud and clear in the distance in one's carefully shot landscapes or cityscapes.
