      Works, but you really don't need it.

      This lens cover is typically purchased by those who think it's going to protect the lens like I did at the time. Yes, it will keep you from touching the actual lens, but it's not going to help protect from an accidental camera drop. I never noticed a difference with/without a UV filter. I do get a polarizer filter and that obviously makes a huge difference. I suggest using a lens guard that comes with your camera and to keep a cleaning kit in your camera bag in-case the kids touch the lens - haha. I had dropped my camera from about 2 feet and it hit the filter, shattering it, and while the lens was fine, the camera and lens were both deemed non-repairable by the folks who service the Geek Squad Protection Plan for Nikon Cameras. So, the lens filter did nothing for me. But if you have kids or a tendency to touch the lens then this filter may be for you.

      Exceptionally thin mount as needed for wide lenses

      This filter has an exceptionally thin mount as needed for certain lenses, depending on how wide their view and how close the outer barrel is to the glass elements. It can be tricky to get a clip on cap to stay on the thin mount, but the thin mount is the reason this is useful ... so, no free lunch. It's also not one of the newest type of dirt repellent filters, but it does seem very resistant to reflections. I also would have prefered a traditional round filter case instead of the large clunky case it came with.

      I purchased a new lense and got a free uv lens protector. Well I did notice at first but the protector had some distortion which I could see while taking picture with a zoom lens. It wasn't worth my traveling back to the store so on my way to upgrade my camera bag I notice platinum UV filter. On inspection this filter appeared to have a better coating and optically look cleaner. The resulting picture turned out great with nature colors and no effect on sharpness.

      Surprisingly good value

      This filter is not a name brand filter, it is one of Best Buy's in-house brands. That being said, it's a great value for casual shooters and beginner photographers. It is a very slim filter, so there should be none to minimal vignetting on an ultra wide angle lens. Threading is decent, and threads onto the lens easily. As a UV filter, the primary purpose for most people would be as an additional layer of protection on the front glass element in case of accidental bumps. In most cases, this filter provides good clear images through the lens, however, in strong backlit conditions a better filter may cut down on glare better.

      I have recently heard a man teaching a class say not to by these for protection because the lens cover is enough. This is in correct. I have dropped a lens and had it saved by the lens filter. The lens cover popper off like it wasn’t there. Spend more money for one. That glass will be between your lens and your subject. You don’t want cheap glass to impede your high $ lens.

      As good as any

      I was a little skeptical of not buying a big name camera brand product for a filter, however it has proven to be just as good as any other I've owned. No distortion or defects in the glass. A good deal overall. It is just a UV filter so there isn't much that can be that good about it, but there is nothing bad about it. It does what I bought it for (protection) and the glass is flawless. My only complaint is this needed a little cleaning out of the box before I put it on.

      This is a high end filter. Very well made. Glass with metal ring. Great for preventing damage to your expensive lenses and even filters out UV rays. Easy to clean as compared to cleaning finger prints off of a lens. This UV Protector Filter is a good investment to safeguard your expensive, and fragile, camera or video lenses A great value for a high quality filter. No lens should be without one.

      Good filter for the money

      What matters most is that the optics seem fine. The screw-thread took multiple attempts to get it to screw into my Nikon lens... and I know the challenge wasn't on the lens' side. But once in place, I don't anticipate needing to remove it anytime soon. This filter is significantly less expensive than the comparable Hoya filter and appears to be a good buy for the money.
