[font color=\'#000000\']I'd prefer the Tiffen brand over the (store?  private label?) Promaster brand, but I'd toss both and buy a HOYA super-multicoated UV(0) filter from www.2filters.com.  They're VERY high quality and not too expensive.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']I would junk them both.

Use a good lens shade and/or lens cap for "protection."  It doesn't take much lens flare to make a great lens mediocre or less.  UV filters, especially cheap poorly coated ones, are great sources of flare.  They sit right out in front to reflect stray light into the camera.

A good quality multicoated camera lens acts as a pretty good UV filter without additional help.[/font]

[font color=\'#000000\']My new used camera came with both a Promaster multicoated UV filter and a Tiffen UV protector. Is one better then the other, are they both OK, are they both junk?

Thanks for the help.

Sorry I ment to put this in the equipment form, don't know how to delete.
