When I bought my camera, I was told to use a UV filter to protect my lenses. I did this faithfully. The only time time it was removed was to put another type of filter in its place. Recently though, I have gotten in my head that my pictures aren't as sharp with it. Is it in my head? I have had where I looked at my screen and didn't think my focal point was as sharp as I wanted, so I removed the filter and continued to shoot and then the pics seemed fine. Now, I am going without protection :lmao:. So, my question is, who uses the UV filters faithfully and does anyone think they change image quality? If I am completely nuts, I will go put them back on. I just figured I would ask and see what others say. And yes, before someone asks, the filter was spotless.
