Why lens filters are important

Why lens filters are important, originally uploaded by Eclipse Pics (∆ncient).

That cracked glass isn’t my Canon 28-135mm IS USM lens. It’s the Ultraviolet filter. I was scrambling over some rocks and slipped. That filter cracked through a camera case, and the lens cap.

That lens has seen a lot of travel and dusty hiking, so perhaps some Canon TLC is called for.
