I suppose the point I was trying to make was that if you know why you would need a particular filter, then you'd know what to buy.

For anybody else who doesn't understand the need for filters, don't just go out and buy some just because somebody said "You need some filters".
Or just hit eBay and buy old kits that include tons of old filters in various sizes for much less cost than one new super-duper XMC treasure that will go under-used. That's how I ended up with maybe 100 filters, not counting the excess UV's that I mount on lenses I sell because they're cheaper than lens caps.
