    I have Nikkor 50mm 1.8D (Filter Size - 52) and Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 (Filter Size - 67). I use the Nikkor mainly for portraits of people and animals. I use the Tamron mostly for general indoor/outdoor photography, landscape, buildings, just about everything. I have not idea what filter I should get....


    Would a Circular Polarizer work best with my Tamron? Or would a Haze filter be better? Would I need a different filter if I want to shoot indoors with a flash?

    I am thinking CP or Haze with my Nikkor as well.

    What does OT recommend?

    this is what I have :dunno:

    warming - for shooting people outdoors/white light
    cooling - for work since I shoot shots of sets under tunsten lighting
    UV - mainly for protection
    Circular Polarizer - because some dick talked me into it :sad2:
    8-point filter - for fun shots

    just get a CPL for both of them, you don't need cooling/warming filters with digital
