Re: You've convinced me

I find the discussions on this topic endlessly fascinating!  There are many good points for and against the use of UV/clear filters, and of course, everyone should do what makes them happy with their results.

I especially enjoyed the Lens Rentals eval, as it reads like an even-handed look at these filters.  The Lens Tip eval was good as well.

I've always used UV filters going back to the mid-70's.  My recent move to Sony Alpha series had me instinctively looking for filters when I bought new lenses.  Old habits die hard I guess.  Good to see via these tests that the worst case scenario for me is not bad at all - much better than I thought actually.  Luckily, I choose Hoya HMC's, which seemed to fair well in these tests.
