UV Filters....Yes or No?
Jan 22, 2014

Hello everyone!

Ever since I started getting into DSLR video and photo about 4 years ago I always wondered if I should or shouldnt throw UV filters on my lenses. I always did from the start when I had cheaper glass, but now I have been investing in more expensive glass and wonder if any UV filter will do or if I need to look into more expensive options.

The lens I will be putting it on is the Sigma 85mm 1.4. I also plan to get a Sony 70-200 2.8 soon.

I mostly want the filter to protect my glass...I do use a lens hood but I figured the more protection the better right?
