Does anyone have an opinion as to what isthe best clear skylight filter brand to use? I'll be using it on the 17-85mm lense as a walk around lense. Thanks.

first a skylight is not clear. there are generally 2 models a 1A and a 1B. each either adds a ever so slight Blue or Amber to the image. Blue for cooling Amber for warming. if you are just looking for a protective filter go for a UV and make sure its multicoated.

now no matter how good the filter is in its MC there is under certain situations where ghosting can and will occur. be prepared to remove the filter as needed to get your shot. generally it happens due to bright point source lighting off angle.

Sorry for the confusion ... I was going to use the filter for lens protection.
