My first ltd lens: FA 43mm ltd

Hi, folks, I would like to buy a uv filter to keep the lens clean. Any suggestion?

Thanks

Anything from the higher graded Schneider or Hoya filter lines should do fine.

don't use one unless you know for sure the lens will get dirty

I agree, it is much better to use the hood.

With the nice hood you don't need to put more glass between your lovely lens and the world it will soon be photographing.

I use a Kenko on my 77 ltd.

Works fine, since (as I understand it) it use the same glass as Hoya do.
