Normally I have a filter on my lenses mainly to protect them but also a bit of a left over from using Ectachrome slide film in the old days which always needed an 81A filter to take out the blue cast !

However I had exactly the same experience as you with a Big Beercan I bought with a filter on. I found it to be a rubbish lens,especially over 180/200mm UNTIL I took the filter off, what a great lens it became - I really couldn't believe the difference.

I've never found this with any other lens so maybe it's just a BBC 'thing' .

Hope this helps someone !

Best wishes
