Re: Physics 101 :)

THAT makes sense. Why people pay $1000 for a lens with sophisticated coatings designed to see nothing but air, and then put a $25 filter made in a Chinese factory from questionable glass, with questionable coatings, in front of it blows my mind.

Any blow sufficient to break the filter is likely to damage the lens. Filters are to camera sales what "undercoating" and optional "sealer coats" are to car sales. Profit expanders that compromise the product

Zeiss do not recommend the use of filters either as they will also degrade an image from those expensive lenses
