    We are told that we get what we pay for.

    In that case this Sony 49mm UV filter should be good enough even for those that say filters are no good:

    Amazing they have sold two already at a price of £2344 each! But don´t worry if you want one. There are still 3 left!

    My lenses are not good enough to protect this filter, so can't use it.

    No question, I'm afraid I've spent way more than that on photo gear.:eek: In my defense: I'm already 59, so I've had the better part of a lifetime to blow that amount of money.

    Well, they put it right in the ebay description.
