    As stated above skylight and uv filters can help older lenses. The filters also cut the haze on distant objects. Take the same photographs with and without the filter and take good notes. You should see a difference for distance shots, you may see a difference on some of the rest. YMMV.

    And just my very simple 2 cents: that haze on distant objects can be a good thing too, depending on what you want.

    A skylight filter absorbs UV but also has a slight yellow/red cast which absorbs a small amount of visible violet, blue and a tiny amount of green vs a UV filter which is neutral. With B&W film the difference in colour is probably too small to have a meaningful effect but with colour film a skylight filter has a very slight warming effect.

    One year I was touring Nova Scotia and it rained for 10 days because of a hurricane stalled off the coast. The only thing that saved the day was a CC 10R filter which warmed up colors.
