    the 50mm shouldnt need a hood b/c the glass is so sunken in. i cant believe the tamron didnt come with one, but i'd buy one from the tamron site. as far as filters, you can get them from ebay for cheap

    The Tamron does come with one, you should go back and talk to the place where you bought it from

    edit: hoya smc filters are good, b+w are good too, if you feel like paying more for filters than you did on your glass :noes:

    I don't see paying $75 for a UV filter...just go to Ritz Camera or any camera store and pick one up. :dunno:

    i bought a hoya pro 1 for my 17-35 and 70-200. id get a hmc hoya uv and a polarizer for your bigger lens then get a step down ring so you can use the polarizer with the 50mm.

    why not? If you're goona spend hundreds to even thousands on a lens and then put a $5 piece of inperfect glass infront, what's the point, just buy a $100 lens baby and you're good to go :ugh:

    step down rings are your frind, buy the filters for the largest lens you have or will have, and buy adapters accordingly, you only need one filter of each that way
