Sounds like you have checked out the lens arsenal at your disposal and are 
satisfied. ?Good to hear. ?I do not use a filter on my 21 Elmarit Asph 
either and have only found one or two shots in the 10000+ shots i took on my 
vacation that needed one, so I have decided to not get one. ?If you convert 
to B&W, then you do not need the filters at all, ?since you shoot B&W most 
of the time, no reason to buy very many.
