I haven't owned an SLR of any kind for many years and after severe pressuring just ordered a couple of D40's for the wife and teenage daughter (might end up getting one for myself!).I want aUV filter to protect the lens that's "good enough" w/o going overboard price-wiseor adversely affecting picture quality by going too cheap. Any suggestions? Thx!...

The most affordable is Hoya's HMC UV(n) range.

For better quality Hoya DMC Pro1 for digital cameras. They are thinner UV glass.

And the best is Hoya's SuperHMC UV(o) Pro1

I use lens cap fo protection. Any filter will make your lens less sharp. Cap the lens when you do not actually taking pictures. Blow up the lenses wiith blower is good enough for taking care of your lenses.

true, always keep lenscap, but if you decide to buy filters anyway, try and get double threaded so that you can put the lenscap on the filter or even screw on a new filter
