Bought a couple of 58mm canon filters as they were on clearance. (There were still three left on the shelf this evening at Fosse Park Leicester.)

Shelf lists as 20.97 but scanned at 9.97! I was made up but realised I have the wrong size for my kit lens (no other sizes available)

There was also some Nikon filters on clearance.

May be worth a look

Looks like I'm going back tomorrow for a refund on this and an ND grad filter (again Canon)

You win some... Its all about the bargains!

Will post receipt (if it uploads any time this year!)

Probably because £10 for a bit of glass most people feel is a bit expensive. I got myself about 5 different Hoya filters including a UV filter, polariser and some coloured filters on ebay. Ebay is an ideal place for filters and from time to time lenses, a well cleaned second hand filter is as good as a new one. Rather spend the money on a new lens than on filters that get easily broken, cheap cheerful and good condition 2nd handers for me all the way, until it comes to the lenses, then maybe spending a bit more.

Don't know much about Canon (brand) of filters, but £10 sounds a good deal to me. But if it's clearance, might only be available at that one branch.

I recently got a new lens, from Jessops, for my Nikon D80 and got a 72mm Hoya filter for about £21 (as part of deal, normally £48), while Jessops own brand were about £25 at time.

What the point spending a fortune on a lens and then put a cheap piece of glass in front?

Have you never cleaned your filters? Same process if its new or 6months old. So long as the glass is blemish free and in good condition oh and of course not a million years old you get the same quality images. I have picked up many useful filters for a fraction of the price on the bay from people who have been to jessops to buy a DSLR and listened to the marketing spew to come out with a load of kit they don't even understand the purpose of. They don't want it, practically brand new if not on a good number of occasions unopened and completely new and a fraction of the price.

Sorry but I don't buy into the whole camera snobbery of it must be brand new to be worth the money as this is a misnomer spread by professionals to deter the more amateur man from getting into the area as a hobby as then every poor sap who wants to just have a fun more interesting hobby thinks because he or she is told she needs to spend this much to even consider getting "beautiful images".

;ol camera snobber, this filters not expensive.... its under a tenner :roll:
Yes verything is cheaper on ebay, especially those fake chinese imports :?
I checked on Amazon, and you can get this canon UV filter from private dealers for around £9, but that doesn't include delivery.
Lots of other store have them for around £18+

Which makes this deal pretty good in comparison :thumbsup:

Cheap filters are suppose to create more 'reflections' (but I think some photographers notice this more than others) and I would have thought filters need to be replaced as they will get scratched over time. But if you are not that bothred about image quality then there are no worries but of course then there would be little point in buying good lenses.

The thing that beats me is why good filters are so expensive ; is it because most seling outlets don't make much from camera body sales but make it up via the accessories ????

They're definitely a high markup item, looking at the Hoya Pro1 models you can save 50% over store prices using amazon etc.

Check out 7dayshop.co.uk
They have branded and their own brand filters. I have been using Hoya and hama ones from them. Good price, great kit and you can pretty much buy new for the price of a second hand filter. Various sizes and types availvable!
