Re: Don't know about you but I just need furnace filters

I wouldn't bother with any filters right now. A Circular Polarising Filter and Neutral Density filters can be useful, but you can assess whether you need/want them later on. Get good quality ones if you do decide to buy, or you'll be wasting your money and running the risk of impairing your photographs.

I use a lens hood for protection, and have never damaged the front element of a lens. I did start thinking about a UV or plain glass filter last year, during pretty horrible weather on our Cape coast - wind driven sand and spume coming off the ocean - but I didn't do anything about it at the time. I might revisit this.
