Hi Sonyshine,

Yeah I felt I did pay for some very expensive snake oil..... I went and exchanged it to a cheaper one today..... I am just worried that 2.8 L lens are too expensive to replace and if putting that piece of glass somehow will save the day..... let it be !

But I did go and exchange it for a UV one which was 1/3 the cost.

The debate about UV filters and if they are worth it or not is almost as long, tiresome and tedious as the OVF vs EFV debate.


I'm on the side of the ''never use them don't want something stuck on my lens that just gets in the way' brigade.' so I think you have just paid big money for some snake oil.....

Others will have a different view....

If money was not an issue for a lifetime - what would you be doing instead of what you do now ?
