Re: Question about filters

I use B+W UV Haze MRC on every lens I have owned, regardless of the system.  The last test I did I placed several brands on a pure white sheet of paper.  Only the B+W was totally clear with the rest having some yellowish cast to them in a greater or lesser extent.

When I toured Egypt I ruined two B+W filters with grit cleaning swirls.  Better the filter than the coatings on a lens although Egypt was an extreme example.  I want my len$e$ to last a long time, and should I want to sell them, to be as cherry as possible at that time.  The B+W is easy to clean, perhaps the easiest (ever try to clean finger prints off a Hoya?) does not flare and does seem to provide a haze reduction in actual shooting.

Other opinions will vary.
