Re: Basic Filter advice - UV and Circular Pol.

It's likely that some of the older prime lenses compare very favourably with their modern counterparts, but there have been great advances in the optical quality of zoom lenses which, not so long ago, were not considered good enough for 'serious' photography.

Going back to the original question, the debate often re-emerges as to whether a UV protection filter is a good idea or not. Essentially it is bound to add to the risk of flare, but whether you feel that the protection it offers outweighs this is a matter of opinion. You should certainly remove the UV filter before fitting any others, including a polariser.
