My wife, a professional photographer, never used a protecting filter.
I was having problems getting a shot of a purple flower. It kept shooting blue. I took off the UV filter and it shot the flower purple.
UV filters are not just an issue with flowers. Many dyes have UV reflecting components, that I was not able to capture.
I now purchase clear filters to protect the lens. I do not see any discoloration on the glass or my photographs.
I got myself a 2nd hand Nikkor 105mm VR Macro F2.8, the previous owner sold it to me together with the Nikon 62mm NC Filter attached. I was amazed by the clarity the Nikon NC Filter was. You can test it out by simply putting the filters on top of a piece of white paper to check the clarity. Hoya UV had a slight yellowish, else Nikon is clearly a winner.
I threw my Hoya 77mm UV and got myself this Nikon 77mm NC filter. My 17-55mm F2.8 never been so good before.
The Nikon NC is *not* a UV filter, but digital sensors are not sensitive to UV light. A UV filter is not needed. From a functional standpoint the Nikon NC performs the same as a UV filter.
I am very pleased with the purchase and would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and others.
I haven't used any type of clear filter -- such as UV or skylight as "protection" for lenses in years and years. However, after purchasing and using my Nikon 24-70, and noticing what I consider to be the bulbous front element I decided to spring for a filter. After looking at some other brands here on Amazon, I decided to go with the Nikon neutral filter that would not add any color cast to my images. This is that filter. I received it in it's proper, sealed Nikon packaging. It was clean, clear, and dust and fingerprint free. I immediately placed it on a white 99% bright sheet of paper and you could tell the filter was in fact there obviously, but it was as clear a filter as I've ever seen. The filter did not rattle in it's frame either as some have commented here. I placed this filter on my 24-70 F2.8. Since my 16-35VR, and my 70-300VR (with a step-up ring) use the same filter size (77mm) I just ordered a couple more - one for each of the other lenses.
I'm much more comfortable carrying the lenses without the lens shade, or lens cap on while I'm working, when I have this filter attached. The only drawback, albeit a minor one, is that I have to unscrew and remove this filter, whenever I want to use any of my Singh-Ray products. A small price to pay in convenience in order to protect a hefty investment in lenses.
Comparing pictures taken with/without it on, I cant' tell the difference at ALL. I paid more than pocket change for my 85mm f/1.4 lens, so even though this filter is a little more expensive then some, it's more than worth it to me for the level of protection PLUS the high level of quality. It seems weird to pay so much for something with the goal being not to be able to tell it's there at all... but if I ever drop the lens and/or scratch the filter instead of the lens, i'm sure it won't feel so weird anymore!

Fits my 400 Sigma perfectly. Sadly I dropped my other one on a night moon shot and it broke. I saw a smudge on it and took it off carefully to clean it. Slipped out if my hand. Read morePublished 12 months ago by JK in LA
