My choice of filters and why:
Hoya HMC UV(c), the best reviewed multicoated UV filter. I'm of the camp that believes in using a UV filter in lieu of a lens cap.
Basic Tiffen 0.9 ND (72mm) and circular polarizers. Basic B+W 0.6 ND filter (58mm). I've never noticed sharpness degradation from filters, and I don't shoot with these kinds of filters under conditions likely to cause reflection problems.
Tiffen Digital HT 0.6 ND grad. The only multicoated ND grad.

Picked up super-cheap as a refurbished unit after I started liking shooting with two cameras. Irritating UI on this camera. Probably going to convert to infrared.
My first MFT camera, purchased basically as a digital back for my lenses at a time when every other MFT camera couldn't AF Four Thirds lenses or were running that same 12MP sensor that was lackluster when it first came out.

Was using the FT mount version of this lens, right up until I got a Markins Q10 head for my tripod. Then I found out that lens was...wobbly. So I got this one. No complaints about IQ, I use this lens for landscape all the time. Small and lightweight, can forget about it in the bottom of the bag right until you need it.

Not sure why this lens gets such a bad rap. It's produced fine results every time I've used it.

  • Sigma 18-50 F2.8 EX DC Macro Loved this lens. Got some of my best photos with it. Couldn't AF worth a darn on MFT cameras though. Traded in for 14-54.
