all filters degrade image, but regular UV just protect and do nothing for the shot. With a Haze 1, it does something like reduce haze on long distance shots it will degrade the shot, but also have a positive effect to off set the slight degradation. And it warm the shot by removing some of the blue spectrum on gloomy days. And adds a pleasing effect for portraits. And it works great at the beach if you do not want to have the 2 f stop lost that a c-pl has. But it does not cut reflections as like a c-pl.

also the one you are looking at is multi coated, so it fight flares and ghosting allot better then non coated or single coated filters.

I use the same Hoya UV(0) that Clint uses and have never had an issue. I keep it on at all times and if the image is degraded I certainly can't see it!

I think this is the one I will get but was hoping someone would tell me that it's a good one before I order it. I hear B & W is a bit easier to clean and want to get the best one I can afford. Will this be a good one without distortions?

010 is their haze filter. so it will have a warming effect, but in the photo, you see the haze reduction effect.

I thought the one I just posted was not their haze filter. They list a haze filter and a UV filter, both are 010 but described differently. See below?

010 is the BW haze fitler, that is why you see the before and after photos on it. they warm slightly, but you can actually leave them on all the time.

I'm on the same boat. I had fz35 for couple weeks and saw little dust particles collected in the lens. My replacement will be here in a week or so and also looking for a lens protector.
I found this Tiffen UV filter for $9.95 and has 100's of reviews at Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/Tiffen-46mm-UV.../ref=pd_cp_p_3

Not sure if this brand compares to the others here but if it works, I would like to save some money.
Another quick question, does Polarizer filter changes the image or can leave all the time over the lens?
Thanks for comment.

When I need to protect my lenses when at the ocean, I use a tiffen haze 1, it is just as in expensive, but it does a bit for warming a shot. The standard UV protectors cast a yellow tint on photos at times.

Shoturtle,
Does Tiffen 46mm UV filter screw directly on FZ35 or it needs some other kind of adapter to fit?
Does it interfere with full zoom?
I'm planning on getting this one as I just need a cover over the lens.
Thanks
