    The filter does what I need and for a fraction of the price of some of the name brands. My only complaint is that the threading on the aluminum ring feels slightly rough, almost to the point where it feels like a step was skipped in the manufacturing process. It does thread on to the lens without much hassle, but not as smoothly as I had hoped. For the price, I will live with that one minor complaint. I can't say enough good about Best-Buy products. I absolutely love every one I've ever purchased. This is no different. It fit great out of the box it was a clean glass that protects my expensive lens. Wouldn't hesitate to buy it several more times, if needed

    Must Have for ALL Lenses

    If you buy a new lens, you MUST get one of these lens filters, it will protect the glass of your lens from smears, scratches, etc. Plus, ig you do like I do, I take off the lens cap when I know I will be using my camera, and with this little gem, I don't have to worry about lens damage. If the filter gets scratched, just remove and replace, it doesn't get much easier than that.

    I will never go without a lens filter on my lens to protect it. It's a basic lens filter, keeps dust off the lens and protects it from damage. However, this purchase is a replacement of the one that saved my lens when it was dropped and skidded across the ground. My camera and lens are fine, no need to spend a couple hundred dollars to replace those but this lens did shatter. Definitely worth having especially when they are only $20.

    A good UV filter is a double investment. It can enhance your photos -- and equally important, it can protect your lens from disaster. I had such a disaster and all that saved my lens was the UV filter mounted to the front -- the filter gave its life but the lens was saved. This is a Best Buy house brand -- as far as I can tell -- but represents good value. I recommend it!

    I'm accident prone, and figured this would be a good way for me to minimally protect the lens. I'm not sure about it adding any other elements to the overall picture, but it was very easy to screw onto the lens. If I would've know about how easy these were, I would've purchased long time ago. I also feel that this is a good value compared with other protection filters.

    I bought this lens filter to go with my Canon EOS camera I purchased. The sales person told me this would be a good purchase to help protect my camera lens and also could improve picture quality and reduce lens reflections and flare. I will update this post once I have used this lens.

    Good Filter/Lens Protection

    I intend to use the lens that I bought this filter for a lot for taking close ups of nature subjects. So far so good. Works well, easy on and off and doesn't reduce light. Main attribute also is added protection for main front lens element. I had a frog jump on the front of the lens. You certainly wouldn't want that on your main lens element. Filter cleaned well.

    I have plenty to say about my planinum series filters for my Nikon camera. Packaging is non bulky and made very well. Lens filter case is small and compact so there is no reason you shouldn't have your filters with you. The lens themselves, I love the way they screw on and they never cross thread. The fit perfect every time. Love this product.

    Fine for Protection

    Don't expect any optical improvement from this. I use it solely to protect my lens from scratches/dust. I would recommend this because leaving the lens cap off is the way to go if you want to quickly turn on your camera and snap a photo while you're out shooting.

    This is my second lens filter for my camera. The first one was scratched by someone else not being careful with my camera. It protected my lens from being damaged as well. Cleans up images well when installed onto lenses. I use this and a circular polarizer together and it works great!!

    Good Sacrificial Lens

    I'm using one of these on each of my base kit lenses (-55mm and -200mm). The filter is clear and seems to give decent UV glare adjustment. I mostly have them on as sacrificial lenses in the event I crack or scratch the outer lens of the optics. I'd rather spend another $15.00 for a new filter that a couple hundred for a new lens.

    Netgear Router is e very good product. I have chosen equipment from this company because I bought before a router from it. It is very easy to set this router and to connect all my devices. I am using it already a week and I am very happy how it works. The connection is fast and reliable! I have 7 devices connected with it!

    This UV filter comes with a sturdy storage case with thick, foam padding to hold it securely. Fits my Nikon B700 perfectly. My inference is other filter sizes from this company are equally good. The filter cuts down on lens flare when shooting in bright daylight; also offers some protection for the lens.

    I use these filters for added protection against dirt and dust. You have to be careful when shooting lights in the dark or be mindful of the sun. It does have the unfortunate ability to throw unwanted light around the image.

    The Platinum - 52mm UV Lens Filter - Clear is a very nice filter and works just as well as those that cost 2 or 3 times the price. My main reason for buying the filter was to keep the lens clean and to protect the front element - it does the job great. It's also Multicoated which helps reduce internal lens reflections and flare.

    The filter came in impressive package that promised a well-made product. The filter inside lived up to its promise. The mount was high-quality metal and felt solid and durable. The glass and coating were, as expected of a high-quality product, flawless. And the price was very reasonable considering the quality.

    This is a decent quality filter for the amateur photographer. Threads on the lens of my Canon DSLR very smoothly without the fear of binding or cross threading. Protects the glass on the front of the expensive lens. Good Value without breaking the bank.

    Not only does this lens filter protect the actual lens from getting dirty or scratched, it also helps bring more of a natural feel to your photos by working with the sun rather than against it. It gives your photos the little light rings when you take direct sunlight photos.

    Let me preface by saying that i'm not a professional photographer. However, I love my camera. The little filter is great for photos but more importantly, it has protected those very expensive lenses from some very tragic falls.
