Taken with the Nikon D5100 with the UV lens on. I guess I should not have had the UV lens on since it was not that light out.


Taken with my Canon PowerShot SX130IS

The need for a UV filter has nothing to do with the light level. All DSLRs already have a UV filter built into the image sensor.

Some people buy UV filters for their lenses because they shoot in really dusty environments, are expecting to deal with salt spray or need them to complete weather sealing on their lenses. A lot more people end up with UV filters because the salesman gets a nice spiff when he sells one. Cheap UV filters can noticeably degrade image quality as well.

Just a quick question, why did you pay so much for the battery while you could've paid only the third of this price ? Also ? Why the UV filter in this situation ? There is no apparent dust around that could harm your lens.

Edit : just saw your post ljason, exactly what meant !

Good clear/UV filter = forget about lens caps.

Here's a photo I took a few minutes ago without the UV filter on and one in the selective colour, which I left as B&W. From what you guys are all saying, I think I won't use it unless it is really dusty. Still learning everything with this camera.
