Polarizing Filter Nikon

Polarizing Filter Nikon
What filters are necessary for a beginner to SLR?

I recently purchased a Nikon D40 and should arrive in the mail this week. However, it also I want to buy accessories for it. Note that I am completely new to the world of SLR. Through much research, I concluded that there basically two filters that no one ever need. Correct if I'm wrong: 1. UV filter: The primary purpose of these is to protect the lens from dust, water damage and damages. Apparently, they do a poor job in filtering UV rays and occasionally can reduce image quality / flares cause. 2. Polarizing Filter: These are used to scenic shots, in which the details of the clouds are far more important. What these filters do is create a haven of rich colors. Tell me what you think, use, or referring a new SLR user. I had in mind to buy one of only 52mm Tiffen UV filter for protection, but many say it is not multi-coated and causes flares. For buy or not buy, that is the question. And if you buy that one and why. Thanks!

You've done your homework. Get a UV and if you feel an impulse – a polarizer. Another application of a polarizer you have not mentioned (sometimes more important than doing the richest sky) is to eliminate glare. For example, you photograph a well-polished car, or a lake and plenty of ee reflections on a surface. A polarizer either eliminate or greatly reduce these to you. Also if you must photograph from behind a glass (windows, zoo cages, etc) and there are plenty of things are reflected in the window – you will too. Hoya makes a series of filters, some of them are multi-coated, some not. So make sure you get the multi-coated one (its more expensive). Hoya and Tiffen are usually good brands to look for in filters, so it is good to go. LEM.
