The Hoya filter you have ordered will do just fine.

There's in my mind, no reason other than actual protection from real environmental conditions to use a filter. Creative filters not withstanding.


Would the "blood of the non-believers" filter be an acceptable creative filter?

P.S. IMO, the 'angel' emoticon does not imply 'belief', YMMV.

John_T, are to trying to put me out of business

Actually, the 50-1.4 would not be my choise as a 95% of the time lens, especially in Florida where it rains a few times a day.

Filter or not, the 50-1.4 is one of the least protected lenses in the Canon lineup.

With the 1DIII, 24-70L and 70-200L I would choose the 24L II or 50L.

I use B&W and I enjoy shooting in all types of weather.

Twas the Atlantic off of the coast in cocoa beach where I laid a 1d3 to rest.

Wow, this is without a doubt a heated debate. I was completely unaware of the varying feelings relative to filters, though the majority seem to favor AGAINST using one.

It looks like I won't order the more expensive brand. Instead, I'll wait until the Hoya arrives (since I already ordered it prior to this post) and see what I discover. I did order the lens hood though so if the filter goes back, I'm keeping the hood.

Thanks everyone.

If you decide to use a filter, I would just use the one you ordered which should be perfectly fine. I certainly wouldn't spend any more on the other one you listed.

I put a filter on my 70-200 4.0 L IS USM. Because I had one. Got it from a friend for free.
I put it off at least. The only other I used was on the 28-135 3.5-5.6 IS USM. It saved the frontlens, when I touched a desks corner. Filter was broken, Lens was fine.
All other lenses where protected by the lenshood only and I never touched anything with them. So I did not want to attache a filter - it might have been a sign to universe to try to break it.

Just keep a hood on the 50 1.4. It has a rather delicate constitution, and a good knock to the front can render it a MF lens (known issue with this lens). Mine lives in its hood to prolong the inevitable.

To further protect your images from ghosts and prevent your house from turning upside down sideways, when the Hoyeah arrives, ceremoniously sprinkle it with sand, pour Coca Cola on it and solemnly crush it with a large rock. Pulverize the remains and put them in a jar to carry in your camera bag and sprinkle a pinch at important shoot locations. This will bring you good luck and outstanding images from any whichever gears you use.

Good advice. What filter would you use when you...

I shot an event at Oheka Castle in 2007 with the 1D and 50-1.4 and a Hoya filter and had a few shots that exhibited flare.

I have never had a problem with the 35L, 85L or 135L under exactly the same comditions and all my lenses wear B&Ws.

Sold the lens.

Maybe you should have sold the filter.

I did. Hope all of yours was half as fine like mine. That would mean ... no photographic gear for christmas, just laying infront of the fireplace reading a book, your beloved partner next to you. Your curring cat, too. Never again war ... life is a dream!

Our Christmas was similar, but different. No photo gear. Just us. My dog squaks and grunts. He's a Schnauzer. From Germany.

Ralph, I think you're right. Life is a wonderful dream. There is no place for war.
