Re: Protective filter… or not? I say beware of filter quality.

Nice examples John.

I don't use filters when shooting, but do use hoods except on my 28-135mm f4-4.5 (no usable hoods available).  My BBC has a Minolta 1-A filter which was on the lens when I purchased it used.  It doesn't degrade much, but does have an effect.

I put filters on when storing my lenses since the hood is generally reversed.  Even with a cap, a filter adds an additional layer of protection.
