What type of filter do people usually use to protect their lens? I do mostly studio table top photography of food for cookbooks. I would want one with filter factor of 1 and no color shift of course.

A UV filter if you really feel you need one.

Filters come in many qualities. Don't buy the cheap ones. Make sure you have a top quality UW filter, for example a top quality B+W filter.

And even more important: make sure your tripod is good!

Ive been using the Hoya Digital Pro-1 UV filters on my two lenses - not sure if theyre as good as the B+W but I think theyre should be pretty close to them.

Cheers

Apparantly Rodenstock filters are made at the same plant as B&W. I've been told they have the same quality as a B&W Filter by those able to sell both. I'm happy with the results of mine.

Can't go wrong with Rodenstock - the glass in my specs has always been made by them and it is absolutely top notch but i had no idea that they also did filters.
