      I generally don't use protective filters, but I was bringing my camera to a couple bars and wanted my front lens element protected in the event of disaster. Attaching this to my nice 50mm f/1.4 was like downgrading it into a substantially cheaper, worse lens. The multi-coating on this filter does almost nothing to reduce flaring, so in anything but broad daylight you'll have plenty of green and pink bubbles zipping around your images. Bright light sources and headlights are a mess of flare, and even with a lens hood I found haze creeping in from off-camera light sources on the side. I'm not a pixel peeper and I'm not the world's foremost expert on image quality, but this filter absolutely wrecked about 60% of the images I took with it. The one benefit was when I took it off, I felt like I'd just upgraded my lens substantially. This may be a good option for quickly protecting a cheaper budget lens, but if you own any lenses with nice flare/reflection-reducing coatings, putting this filter on it is basically like scraping the coating off into the trash.

      Ounce of PREVENTION worth a pound of CURE

      This is a great lens filter. It does not detract from picture quality or introduce any image degradation whatsoever. Protect that huge investment in your new lens by adding on this superb filter. It is like purchasing an insurance policy for your lens, but you actually have a tangible item on the camera to protect the lens...rather than some stupid warranty or piece of paper. Wrap that rascal with this fine filter and that new lens will retain it's superb optics many more years than the same lens without it. Enjoy it and know it's a wise investment. This ounce of prevention is reasonably priced and is much less than the pound of cure it would costs to have the lens reground.....buy it today!!!

      I really only have this on my lens to protect it from damage to the glass and I’m glad I had it.. My camera fell forward on a tripod and hit the corner of something. The filter was broken and the edge of it was smashed in a little, but my lens was just like new. Best money I’ve ever spent to protect my equipment. I immediately purchased this one to replace it.

      Some elitist will offer their snide remarks about how you shouldn't use this type of filter but who cares what they say?! I have always put one of these on every single one of the lenses I've ever owned. I don't have quality issues with my pics and I've saved myself thousands by hitting this filter rather than my expensive lens.

      I tried researching the Platinum brand filters sold at Best Buy. The only reviews available are on the Best Buy website. Can't find where the filters are made or any reviews on filters affecting image quality. I bought the filter as an immediate protector, but will replace it with a quality filter ASAP. I can't recommend this product without knowing anything valid about it.

      The PLATINUM lens filter is not the top of the line professional use model. It is, however, very good insurance to protect your precious LENS! I could never stand the thought of my lens, without a covering filter, facing the cruel world without this protection. Three stars, does what I want it to do.

      Just started purchasing these UV filters along with my new Canon lenses. Have not had one issue with these wonderful filters! They protect your gear and your pictures will turn out beautifully. Now I need to backtrack and purchase more of these for the Canon lenses I bought before I knew that this was a must have for each of the lenses.

      I am a professional photographer. I use the filter for protection for my 24-70 mm Nikon lens. This time I got more than I bargained for.. this is a workhorse lens and when I took portrait photos the lens I did not have to switch filters!
