This is an excellent point. I started with one of those cheap plastic ones, which are OK without a filter, but then ...

About two years back I snagged a metal Yashica shade off ePrey for about $16 -- it looked like it had traveled quite a lot, but was mechanically good and I touched up the paint chips a bit.
