    UV filter for 32mm and 23mm Rodentock

    Does anyone use UV filters for these lenses? I want to use them in the rain/fog/wet etc. and hesitate because I don't want to get water droplets on them.

    I have the center filter for the 23 but it's no longer relevant with the 150.

    Thank you for any input.

    I use the B+W UV/IR cut filter (filter 486) on my 32. I leave it on all the time unless I remember to take it off when using the center filter (I haven't noticed any degradation in quality when I've left it on).

    I do not use a UV on my 32mm. I have a circular polarizing filter, that I leave on for protection and then take off when its not needed.

    Do you happened to know the brand and specs?

    Thank you,

    Yes, that's the one I use. I have one on every one of my lenses regardless what digital back I use.

    Just curious- does this filter add any sharpness, or is it just for protection only?
    I have often wondered if IR/UV cause any subtle image degradation.

    According to Brad Kaye at CI, the filter helps with image sharpness when using PhaseOne Achromatic cameras (which I use a lot the time). I have not seen any image degradation with non-Achromatic digital backs, which is why I keep the filters on my lenses full time regardless of what digital back I'm using.

    Here's a link to a loosely related article on the CI website which briefly discusses the need for the 486 filter when using the achromatic digital back (which I understand is different than what would be seen with a non-achromatic digital back):

    Hope this helps,

    Hi, where did you get a CF for the 23? I was told there wasn't one available.

    Thanks,

    I hit it from Samys SF. I believe they got it direct from Cambo.

    Thank you
