I just bought a AF-S 24-70mm F2.8 and hooked it up to my D7000 to do some tests.

I was dissaponited. Colors weren't there and it was a bit soft. Not what I expected from a lens in this class.

So I considered sending it to Nikon for evaluation and possible adjustment. Then it dawned on me, could it be my UV filter.

Took the filter off and now I'm happy.

What do you recommend? I bought the lens for my next wedding asignment, but I've ALWAYS used UV filters to protect my lenses.

Yet, I know many photographers don't use filters and for this very reason.

The filter I used got good reviews: B+W Digital MRC F-PRO UV-Haze.

Yet, I can't deny it, the photos are better without the filter.
