Re: [Rollei] ARGH! Sorensen and the Filter Myth!

They are quite hard and have been since the late 60s.  A filter, by
definition, is used to remove something from what passes through it.
Unless you want to remove something you need no filter. You find
no filter on any of my lenses unless I am using it to accomplish a
very specific photographic look.

The only time I use a "protective" filter is at the beach when
near the surf, to protect against sea spray, and in the desert
when it is windy.  If I went way up in the mountains I might want
a UV.  That's it.
