Re: Please a simple UV and polarizing filter recommendation for 24-70 II

I had the B+W 77mm slim MRC UV fitted almost all the time on 24-70 mk1. When I upgraded to mk2, i did the normal thing and ordered the same filter, 82mm variant. It came the same time with the lens so i had it fitted for a week almost all the time. I found the flare unbearable for a lens which is known for good flare control. I mean I had flare on almost any picture regardless of the light source, hood on. I had to remove the filter because of this and now I'm using the lens without any UV filter.

I wonder if anyone else had a similar experience?

I also have the B+W 77mm slim MRC CPL, but after the episode with the UV, I decided to give other brands a try so I ordered Heliopan slim 82mm Multi-Coated. The build quality seems a bit better on B+W but the Heliopan is slimmer and i find the markings on the side very helpful. I can't notice any difference in IQ.
