A pretty good reason for a filter.

    in a hazardous environment it make sense. But filters should be use with discretion. Use them when you need to.

    This was somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but that said, I use a filter on every lens that I own. I probably have more money invested in filters than many here have in lenses. :eek:

    I shoot in low light allot with strong light points and I find all filter bw and tiffen ht will flare at some point
    so I avoid using filters all together.

    That's odd, because I've never experienced ghosting or flaring while using B&W MRC filters. And I've shot heaps where there are point sources everywhere.

    Cheers

    It has happen to me a bunch of times. I gave up on it. I stick with only using ND and cpl-1 now adays. Kept the tiffen HT cpl, it was easy to clean. But sold off the UV filters.

    But also, what size was the lens, 58mm, 72mm, or the smaller m4/3 thread? That does make a bit of a difference.

    If I could predict when I'm about to be in trouble... maybe my e-410 wouldn't have gotten run over by a million cars :rofl:
