    This is hardly a universal truth Don, please stop spouting it like it's gospel.

    Obviously, you have not shot with a SONY 18-70 lens. You would really have to have something god-awful to make it work worse.

    If everybody made the "mistake" of religiously buying good filters ... who is it going to hurt? Huh? YOU? THEM? Cut your losses and get involved is some other protest. Good gosh!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
