UV filters, unscientific test

my thoughts...

I didn't see much of a difference with any of these. I realize that on a theoretical level a filter might degrade the image a bit, but by such a tine amount that in real world usage it generally isn't much of a thing. Of course I realize that filters (at least ones like UV) aren't really necessary for digital photography, but nonetheless I like the piece of mind in using them (just as lens protection). The one exception that I make is is I'm shooting something really high contrast, lit by single point lighting sources, like a city at night or a band on a stage... then I definitely take the filters off.
