    Just what I needed

    So happy with this UV filter. I had bought an inexpensive filter for my new lens. However dust was constantly sticking to this filter. Also after a few uses, it soon had many fine stratches on the filter. Over time this was affecting the image quality of my photos. At a photography course, the instructer recommended spending money to get a good UV filter. Reason: it is always on the camera so you use it every time you shoot. I had a great lens that was being degraded by a poor quality UV filter. So I took the plunge and bought this filter. What a difference! Any dust is easily puffed away. No stratches. Nice clean photos!

    Hoya Filters - the best there are

    I use UV filters on all my lenses as lens protectors. I was excited that Best Buy decided to carry Hoya, because tests have shown that Hoya filters let more light through than any others. So I bought for all my best lenses. Besides lens protection these filters also help reduce glare and stay cleaner easier...See attached pix. Two other good reasons besides basic lens protection. So yes I absolutely recommend them.

    Doesn't seem to degrade image

    I bought this only to protect a new lens (something I am beginning to question as a regular strategy). However, it is rated to pass-through a very high percentage of light and doesn't seem to degrade images (from my limited experimentation). And, it's way cheaper than a new lens (although it isn't "cheap" by any means). If you are determined to protect a lens, this is probably the way to go (DO NOT BUY A CHEAP FILTER - it will detract from your images and reduce the *speed* of your expensive lens).

    WELL WORTH THE PRICE

    I must admit I had real sticker shock when I saw the price. I probably wouldn't have bought it but was in a time crunch and it was the only they had in 82mm. While I cleaned my other filters several times during a 17 day trip I only had to clean this one a couple times! I had a lot of wind during my trip to the Low Countries. It really repels the dust and the other nasties that crud up filters. I'll bite the bullet and buy more of these.

    This filter allows natural light in and I can just wipe away the rain drops or dust all while protecting my lens. It gives me peace of mind knowing that my expensive lens is protected. I once dropped the filter and it didn't break, which proved it that it is made from a strong material.

    This filter was everything I wanted but came in twice with manufacturing defects. (inclusions and scratches within finish that could not be removed) Waiting to hear from Hoya on this. Left the second defective filter on to protect my brand new 24-70 lens until I hear from them.

    Love the Shallow Profile

    Love that this filter is anti static, and its shallow profile makes it acceptable for wider angle lenses. It is very light and feels sturdy. The filter threads properly unlike cheap imitations. It also has virtually no effect on exposure.

    It's a UV filter. The threads work.

    Not much to review. It's just a UV filter and it threads on correctly. No cloudiness or any other problems. Dust hasn't had time to stick, so anti static hasn't come into play. Like I said, not much to review.

    So far I’m impressed with the quality of the cover and the way it feels just screwing in. It doesn’t affect the quality of my photos and does its job well.

    With as expensive as lenses are I can't imagine not having a filter on my glass. Between dust and sand on windy days when I'm shoot or when liquid may be splashed while I am shooting in a crowd the cost is definitely worth it.

    Multi coated Lense filter which also has anti static properties which is excellent as it does not attract dust. Also has good protection for my 24-70 mm 2.8 lense

    This filter does what it is supposed to - keeps the sun out. I truthfully don't see a lot of difference in it and others, but it was a good price and is still being used.

    Bought this for my Sony G f2.8 24-70mm lens. High quality anti static UV filter repels much of the dust and pollen I usually see on filters/lenses without it.

    Hoya filters have been around for a long time and have a reputation for quality. I just needed a piece of glass to protect my new lens so I bought this filter. No complaints, except for the price.

    I absolutely recommend this for all of your lenses. It will take all the abuse and protect your expensive glass. Best part is that it doesn't increase the chance of chromatic aboration

    Purchased this filter to help protect my lens for scratches. Filter feels of quality and I don't notice any reduction in image quality between having it on or off my lens.

    On my 24-70mm 2.8 lens, I put this UV Filter on there and the pictures are as clear as I didn't have a filter. Expense UV Filter but it's worth it and worth to protect your investment.

    If you have a nice lens this is a cheap way to protect it from scratches without lowering the quality of the picture
