    I bought the Nikon 16-85 DX lens the VR11 version . Im shocked to find out
    the lens is so close to the lens cap mayb only 2mm . I dont normally go for
    lens filters to protect lens . but in this case I will have to get one. any
    sugestions which one Im thinkinking of a Hoya Pro 1. Do most of zooms within
    this range have the from eliment so close to the lens cap . . The Nikon
    16-85 fromt element appaers to be toally flat from the fromt and soo close
    to the lens cap :(

    I believe you will get better results with the thinner B+W. Works better at
    the wide end, being thinner.

  3. A number of the new lenses are like that. Personally I prefer to use the
    lens hood to protect the lens rather than a filter, and the hood is
    generally useful anyway. Don't you use the hood that came with your 16-85?
    I'll agree it's a bit more of a nuisance than a filter you can just leave on
    the lens, but I still don't like using filters for that purpose.
