Well from my limited expereince, B+W is a clear No.1 with the Hoya HMC range in second. Of course, I'm sure a Cokin set is 'serious' in every sense of the word but strays from the 'compact' definition But the glass is supposedly superb!Thanks for the replies, which manufacturers are top of the bill filters?
Is B+W #1 ?
You can get an adapter to take filters. I have one with a UV filter, mainly for using in the rain, with a zip lock bag I can make the camera pretty much weatherproof. Now I've got the adapter, I might have a play with a polarizer.I don't think any fit on the LX5.
I use UV or skylight protection filters, I've got a draw full of them. Sometimes an 81B to warm things up slightly. For the protection filters I've used expensive ones and cheap ones and haven't noticed the slightest difference in lens performance or image quality. I did some serious testing on an expensive Hoya versus a cheap Kood, and try as I might I couldn't detect anything that indicated why the Hoya was 5 times the price. Consequently I don't buy Hoya filters anymore. A complete waste of money, as far as I'm concerned.Thanks for the replies, which manufacturers are top of the bill filters?
