guppies, take a look at this discussion:

http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=50

There is a lot of good information about filters.

If you are looking for a filter just to protect the front element of your lens, most people go with either a UV filter, a skylight filter or what they just call a "protective" filter -- which isn't really a filter, just a piece of clear glass in a frame.

The above discussion brings up brands, quality and price.

Thank you for your respone. I do more reading last couple of days. Since I am so new to DSLR and own a Nikon D40 with kit len. I am planning to go for a 55 - 200 mm VR, SB-400 flash and the following...

I go thru the rebview the sb-600 is better but look to me, the extra option for the 600 I will not use for now. And 400 are much smaller. I am looking for a flash just to make sure I have something to give me more light if I need it.

I nail down to a B+W 52mm Circular Polarize (MC) for $ 79.99 and a Hoya. B+W is $ 15.00 more
