I don't know about that, old habits die hard and I've experienced the agony of destroying a lens that would have been saved by having one on the camers. The beauty of the system is that the filter adapter screws onto the filter you might already have on the camera. Sort of a stacked afair. You can also get a hood that attaches to the filter holder and can be stacked to give extra protection from the sunlight affecting the lens. The adapter ring can be purchased in a wide variety of sizes to fit almost any camera. You are so right Bob. I got to have some help in decideing which one I need most.

I did wedding photography for years and always used a UV filter to protect my lenses. I used two different Minolta SLR 'swith assorted lenses. Perhaps it's a matter of preference, but why not protect the investment?

I used Cokin filter system and likeda lot. I really only usedsome of the special effects filters.I liked the simplicity of the system, and I kept the filters organized in a filter case. I'm going to see if I still have them (I know they are collecting dust somewhere).It's been years since I used the 35. Digital photography kinda jumpstarted my interest in phtography again!

The neutral density filter will work just as well. The B&W's are really fine quality too. You've made a good and wise purchase.
