    Does anyone know if it's better to have the UV filter covering a polarizing filter or vise versa? Currently, my UV filter is inside while my polarizer is on the outside.

    why do you need a uv on there if you are shooting with a polarizer. the only reason i ever throw a uv on is if it is really dusty and i dont want crap in my lens.

    ...Shameful honest moment. I am so completely clueless about filters.

    Yes, I could Google and read a gazillion web pages ~ but is there one good source for the use of filters?

    I am Heavily nature/wildlife/landscape/nature macro ~ and some Portrait. What filters would benifit me?

    The only real experience that I have is that I use a PL (linear Polorizing) + Skylight filter on my Minolta 35mm ( strictly black and white exposures), and it does me well.

    The main purpose of a UV filter is to just protect the glass of the lens.....you dont NEED it really. In low light you will get bounce on the inside of lenses that will leave a halo in your pictures, so during evening shots you wont even want your UV filter.
