Thanks for comments jcr and rshofield.

Update so far: I have an electronic lable to send back Tiffen. Postal tracking shows allegedly correct filter left Brooklyn post office today. It may come soon and I will see how it works. It was 21 dollars. I look at prices of the multi-coated good ones and think I might try this cheap one just to see how it works. My main use would be over the water shots when the lake is bright and I feel experimental.

I am working up to making a post with a title like Snow Birds. When I do I will mention which shot was taken using the Tiffen filter.

Overstock.com sent me a customer satisfaction survey asking how they handled my recent contact. I filled it out saying it is hard to tell since they have not yet sent the right item. I have actually bought non-electronic things from them now and then with no problems.

Steve

Probable final update on this thread. Overstock sent me the return label but I did not send back Tiffen filter, figuring I would wait and see what arrived as the "correct" filter. Which arrived Christmas Eve. Which was another Tiffen. So I called them today and said I wanted to use the label to send both filters back and I wanted a refund. And the lady said "I don't blame you." So that is what will happen.

"Both the Tiffen and Fotodiox filters did nothing to the image."

You first say that there was no image degradation. Then you say the above. I don't follow your logic. Which Tiffen filter were you testing and what effect were you looking for?

Theoretically, UV filters should reduze haze to some extent. When I say that they did nothing to the image, I meant it did not cause any positive OR negative affect (i.e. distortion, bad color cast, etc.). They both can be used as a lens protector (ONLY). Do not expect them to eliminate haze and/or provide any cleaner images.

Gene, I don't understand your comments regarding WB. Those images were taken with the camera set to "sunny", as it was a sunny day. The color saturation was caused by the warm pol filter. I was simply showing the difference the Moose pol can make but I'm not saying it's a good or bad difference. It's a matter of taste.
