Re: question about filters and IQ

With UV it's matter of degree.
As a rule of thumb each element of a lens absorbs 90% so a typical lens absorbs a lot of UV.

The question was initially posed as a general one. I suggested macro close up with fixed lens cameras in mind. Special macro lenses and tubes are better but I have had very good results with good add on close up lenses on my super zoom cameras.
