    hey all, glad to find an active photo forum! im all over it!
    i have a question first...i use a sony r1 and purchased a promaster UV filter. i just recently found out that the Hoya are much better, and its kinda dumb to throw a cheap filter on the zeiss lense. so ive been shopping around on ebay for hoya filters and there are TONS to choose from..just wondering if anyone could give me some advise on one that would be best.


    thanks

    Hoya UV filter which is the correct size. You need a 67mm thread AFAIK - CHECK THIS first though. I am NOT recommending this seller, just an example of one which would do you fine:
