For what use?

I have a B+W MRC Polarizer and .6 ND, the polarizer gets used quite a bit. I need a set of grads, been eyeing hitec with a cokin holder. I dont use any protective uv filters, except in certain conditions.

<---THATs not my normal setup

hoya uv basic/green labelon most lenses

hoya uv HMC on my 70-210 f/4, and 28-75 f/2.8
no idea if the extra coatings really work or not...

for circular polarizers, i have different ones for each filter thread size....i use hoya green, cokin, and sunpak...built quality on those seem to be ok....

i also tried a brand called Fotodiox, off some ebay seller, and the build quality on those are crap....

Hoya Japan Skylight 1B and Tiffen Circular Polarizers. I also have several specialty filters such as cross screen and diffuser(center spot) which I haven't used in years.

Normaly i just use a UV filter to prtect my lens, though i have one polarized filter for my outdoor photography. I also have a adapter so that i can use the same polarized filter on my different lens. (note polarize filter should be the size of the largest lens you have to accomodate the smaller ones also)

This is just me

I am only using filters as lens protection. I use Hoya multicoated.
