UV Filters & Canon IS Binoculars...
Posted 25 December 2012 - 11:27 PM
When I purchased my 15x50 IS, it came with a set of 58mm polarizer filters (the previous user was a fisherman) which I don't have a lot of use for since I use this binocular for night sky observing about 80% of the time. So I chose to purchase a set of screw-on lens hoods instead (about 20mm length) to give some protection to the objectives.
So now I purchase a Canon 10x42 L IS and the previous user installed a set of B+w F-Pro UV-Haze filters over the objectives. I'm again tempted to remove them and buy a pair of lens hoods again, but is there a good reason to leave the UV filters in place? I expect to use this binocular about 50%/50% night/day...
