*I received a Pentax 16-45 zoom lens from my wife for Xmas.
I want to put a clear filter on that would be on at all times...during day, night, indoors, outdoors photography and I want to use the Pentax supplied lens hood for the lens.
*I want to buy as good a quality as I can afford as I don't want to put something over the lens that will take away from the quality of the lens I bought.
*Any recommendations ?
I'm not a fan of UV filters as well. What I have on my da 16-45mm lens is a Circular polarizer which I take off for indoors and leave on for outdoors.
The lens hood is pretty good at protecting the lens as well.
