Lensrentals blog looks into the effects of filters

By dpreview staff on Jun 15, 2011 at 21:03 GMT

Lens rental company Lensrentals has posted an interesting blog post on the subject of filters. Ostensibly side-stepping the issue of whether UV filters are actually beneficial, it illustrates the effect of stacks of UV filters of different qualities. Acknowledging this isn't a real-world application, it does show that, if you are going to use filters, you probably shouldn't try to skimp on them. The post also shows exactly why you should never be tempted to stack more than 49 filters on the front of your lens.

It would be very interesting to see DPR add reviews for filters. Next time, we only have to carry one filter and leave the other 49 filters home.
