I am using Minolta SRT 101 with 58mm 1.4 and i am happy from the sharpness, colors, contrast etc, and since i am using this lens quite often i want to add a lens hood for this lens and to improve the images.
I am shooting mostly portraits, people, family etc with this lens and i don't want to have huge lens flare because of the open aperture, and i am getting lens flare even when the sun comes from the side (as on pictures #1 and #3 in the attachment).
I found out that the original lens hood for this 55mm filter size is D55NA hood.
Where i can buy that hood, on what price (if someone knows), and is there a chance that some other hoods might fit the lens?
Also, is clever buying a UV filter for the same lens? Will it change something. And if i need one, which UV filter should be good?
I attached some examples.
thanx in advance.
P.S. - I found this 55mm UV filter SIGMA, would it fit on my lens? http://pixplus.com.mk/index.aspx?tab...productdetails
