You invest a lot of money in your camera lenses with some lenses costing thousands of pounds. The main lens elements are often coated with many layers and coatings which enhance colour, saturation, sharpness also help remove ghosting, fringing and chromatic aberrations.
When lenses are being used your lens front element gets a lot of stick from dirt, moisture and other elements. You will clean your lens regularly when in use as you do this you will remove or damage these coatings over time and scratch your lenses also.
A simple, cost effective way to protect your lens with no impact on your images or video quality is to invest in a UV lens filter. These will protect your lenses from the above but you do get what you pay for.
There are many brands well worth using I’ve always used and trust Hoya Pro 1 Digital Filters but other brands worth looking at include B&W, K&F. It’s far cheaper to replace a lens filter than a lens.
So a must have when you get your new lens.
The Canon EFS 24mm F2.8 STM Lens is a cracking lens that is pin sharp and creates stunning bokeh. It’s also a bargain price lens which can be got for around the £140.00 mark cheaper if you don’t mind buying pre-owned off EBay or MPB.
Where this lens really excels is in video use with a quick almost silent focus, this really is a capable lens a bargain and a must have lens if your a content creator. An excellent lens for any Canon M50 users out there.
TIP : Always put a high quality UV filter on your lens. The high quality ones have no impact on your images or video but they will protect your lens elements but also lens coatings from wear and tear. Far cheaper to replace a filter than a lens.
