    Hi, I have just purchased a Nikon 105mm Micro lens, My question is, should I put a lens protector on? Thinking of the the B+W 62mm XS-Pro Clear with Multi-Resistant Nano Coating or similar. Or is the theory, putting any glass in front of a good lens, will deteriorate or distort the image? ps I will be using a lens hood.

    Russ, I don’t use any protective filter on the front of my lenses but they are used mostly in the studio. I would put a protective filter on the lenses if you are using them in inclement weather. fog, rain, dust or sandy environment, snow or coming in and out of the cold into a warmer environment. I would then remove them when not needed to protect the lens. This is one of those many subjects that 50% of the photographers would say don’t use a filter and the other 50% would say they have one on the lens at all times.
