Hello to all the sifu here. I have a couple of questions, if you don't mind.
Currently I'm using the Sony mirrorless series. Would like to get some good UV filters for my lenses.
SEL55F18Z - 49mm
SEL1670Z - 55mm
SEL28F20 - 49mm
Would like to know:
1. Is it worth buying B+W XS-Pro for these lenses?
2. Any idea where I can get these UV filters for a good price without getting ripped off?
I'm very new in the camera scene and I'm slowly developing an interest after getting my first mirrorless as a wedding present.
Your advice is much appreciated!
1. SFEL55Z - 49mm YES, but you can consider using Sony's own Zeiss T* Filter. they are very very good too.
2. SEL1670Z - 55mm YEs, again, you can look into Sony's own Zeiss T* filters.
3. SEL28F2 - if you plan to grab the fisheye or wide angle adapter from sony, then No filter. because filter will block the adapter mount so u need to open the filter everytime u wan to use the adapter.... this lens i wouldnt worry much about filter also...
kinda curious, are you using APS-C or FF? why the lens are mixture of APSC and FF?
if you are using APSC, consider selling off the 28mm and swap for the old sel16mmF2.8 + fisheye adapter... its a very fun combo lens...

Ugh... bought a new Hoya HMC UV filter 67mm and only noticed there were small bits of coating marks on the glass when i reached home.
Anyone with similar experience on how this affects image quality?
1. is the coating mark in dead center of the filter?
2. do you often shoot at above F5.6?
if both answer is No, then it is not an issue.
if either one is Yes, then you 'might' notice softness or marks on your photo.
