    Only filter you will probably need is a circular polarizer. UV/Skylights protect the front element, but at the same time, adds another piece of glass that can and will add reflective surfaces, which can lead to CA or other imperfections.

    ive seen examples of UV filters and polarizers, but how necessary are they in everyday shooting? more to the point: are they worth the money for what you get?

    could someone with a few show me before/after type pics, or link me to a site that explains then?

    I've used UV filters for a while now, and they don't seem to "improve" the image quality any. I've only ever used them as protective devices.

    It may make a little bit more difference outside, but I'm starting to ween myself off of them to avoid any extra CA that may happen on top of the natural CA from the lens.

    If you want filters, get either Hoya or B+W.....

    Main purpose behind a UV filter is for lense glass protection like stated above...

    Shooting with a Circular polarizer gives so much more story to a picture in bright lights....its just like wearing polarized sunglasses....I have my CPF on 100% of the time if I am shooting in the daylight...

    After the rain yesterday, taken with a Circular polarizer:

    A polarizer definitely makes the sky a lot more interesting, giving it a nice gradient to the color. Plus, deep blue > normal sky blue
