I am looking to buy some B&W filters for my EOS Elan II camera. This $30 Tiffen set of 3 is an option for me:

But before I take the plunge, I have a few questions:

1. Is Tiffen high quality?

2. If I purchased more expensive brands, could I tell a difference in the printed image?

3. If I purchased less expensive "generic" brand, could I tell a difference in the printed image?

4. Any other brand recommendations?

5. I assume the 58mm "screw in" option is the best for my Canon EOS Elan II. Is there a more effective option?


Any comments could help. Thanks.
