I am going to buy a filter for a D70 kit lense 18-70 67mm



from what I have heard the UV and skylightfilter are useless when it comes to modern lenses and dSLR camera sensors. so should I buy a polarization filter instead?



anywhere I can read more about filters?

A polarizer is a very useful filter but its not to be left on all the time.

If you want a filter for protection, I would suggest a multicoated UV filter.
