Is it worth the higher price for a UV filter, do they make that much of a difference with a higher quality L lens? What is a fair price to pay on a Quality UV filter? I see them for as high as $300 plus.
I shoot mostly youth sports, indoor and outdoor, I do crop often. I have not been happy with the noise I get even at 1600. I am rarely just firing off the frames so less FPS is OK. I was looking for better AF and less noise at the higher ISO.
