    There’s not much to write about with this lens filters, and that’s a good thing. It costs half as much (if not even less) as other lens filters and does the job well. My lens (just a Sony kit lens) is protected and the lens filter doesn’t protrude much from the lens. It was easy to install and doesn’t interfere with the lens cover. I haven’t noticed a drop in clarity or any excess distortion or color loss. It may (technically) not offer the clarity of $50+ filters but it’s just fine with a kit lens while being easy on the wallet.

    Protects my main lens

    Bought this filter to protect the main lens that I use to take photos. I always buy a UV filter to protect my camera lenses so that they don't get scratched or otherwise damaged. Its cheaper to replace a filter rather than a lens. The lens cap that came with the camera also works with this filter.

    I bought this in conjunction with a polarized lens. They work beautifully together. I was a little disappointed that the sales guy didn't know a thing about the lenses even though he was referred to help me....he tried to sell me the wrong lens. I had to ask him if he was sure it was the correct one. After I sensed his hesitation, I went to Google and found the correct size. Bam, done!

    surprising decent

    I've been buying filters all my life for all my lenses and this is surprising decent for a house brand. I got it to use on MILC cameras and I love the flatness of the profile. To get similarly thin filters you'd have to spend a lot of money on Cokin Pure Harmonie which is very difficult to find.

    I know as much about cameras as I do the inner working of a flux capacitor. That being said, I bought this for my wife and she loves it! She does know a lot about cameras but when she talks about them I just hear blah blah blah. Her review was the folllowing: Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Hope this helps. She really does use it.

    Good Lens Protection

    Not only a good UV filter but also an easy to use item that will protect your expensive camera lens. I always install one on the end of every lens. They screw on very easily. I think they are necessary just to protect your lens from scratches and dirt which will ruin any photos. Note the size of your lens before purchasing because they come in different sizes.

    A Must Have item to protect your lens

    I bought this as a lens protector. UV Filtering is nice, but the protection it provides at the price is worth it. Going on to Africa on safari and this will protect the lens optics from dust, dirt, scratches, etc. If the filter gets scratched, etc, it's a lot less expensive to replace than the whole lens

    I always use a UV filter on my lenses.

    I always use a UV filter on all of my lenses. Why take a chance on messing up the front element of a lens when a simple UV filter can prevent that from happening. This is a good quality filter and I am happy with it. It does not degrade the picture at all, and provides protection for the lens.
