    Affordable Protection, Good Clarity

    I bought this UV filter for the factory 18-55mm STM lens on my wife's Canon EOS Rebel SL2/200D. It does not noticeably affect the clarity or color of images, but provides assuring protection and peace of mind against accidental damage. It doesn't require any adaptors; simply hand tighten it onto the filter threads in the end of the lense bezel, and you have an extra layer of security, even with the cap off. It accepts the factory cannon lense cap, so you won't even notice it's there. I am not a professional photographer, but I think these filters are a very good value. Buy one for each lense and know your investment is well protected.

    A must for all lenses From experience

    From experience I have found that a UV filter is a must for all lenses. It prevents scratches to the cameras lense. Often times, I get a smudge on the lense and it is must safer to clean it with a soft cloth than cleaning a camera lense without a filter. One time,before I started using filters, I cleaned my lense and there must have been something other than dust and I got a slight scratch which showed on my photos. Since then I have done always purchased and used DEDICATED UV's on all of my lenses.

    Makes A Difference

    When taking photos on a sunny day using my Canon T6s with the Canon 55-250mm lens I was getting a lot of haze in the photos. After a little research I found that using a circular polarized lens filter can reduce or eliminate the haze and reflections. I purchased the Platinum 58mm Circular Polarized lens filter at my local Best Buy and wow what a difference. The filter did clear up the haze and it also made a very noticeable difference in the clarity and color brilliance. It's a must have if you shoot landscape photos.

    I have to say it, I have never heard of this brand before, and I was a little bit worried if I would like it. The price was ok, and packaging was really looking nice as well, so I decided to get one!? I have to say that I'm pretty impressed with this filter. Looks nice, with very nice finish of it, and doesn't look or feel cheap at all. Most importantly, I could not see that affects the picture quality at all, so I really like this filter!

    I bought this with a new prime lens to ensure that my lens would be protected. However, since my purchase I have used various UV filters. This is a good filter, but I have noticed some flare within my photos while shooting in certain lighting. Overall, the filter is durable and I like that its strong glass, instead of paper thin plastic like some other filters feel.

    When the Nikon representatives Christina and Katie suggested this, I didn't think I needed it, but I bought it anyway. Taking my new 7200 DSLR out to a photo shoot, as I put my camera around my neck, the camera brushed up against a wall...I let out a silent scream... looked at my camera thinking I scratched my $350 lens...what a relief to know it scratched the lens filter. Thank you Christina and Katie for your highly recommended suggestion.

    Must have to protect your lenses

    I have owned SLR's for over 40 years and when purchasing new lenses has always purchased a clear (UV) lens to protect the glass of the lens. Would rather spend $20-$30 to replace the filter than $150-$300 (or more) to replace the lens in the event that something scratched the lens. Have never seen where a UV filter has ever negatively impacted the image that the camera captured.

    So glad i decided to purchase my 58mm uv lens filter. You can absolutely tell a difference between lens with and without the uv filter. Im so satisfied with this purchase im going to go back to best buy and buy one for each and every lens i own! Its a must have for your cameras lens not only for a little extra protection on the lens but for a better quality photo!

    Expensive compared to Rocketfish

    I like the filter. Don't get me wrong, it does do the job. But I would have preferred to spend $7 to $10 for a filter, rather than $20. I thought this unit would be better than my Rocketfish, but they are very much equivalent. I can't justify paying more than double for the same filter function.

    After purchasing a new Canon T5 digital camera bundle with 2 lenses and camera case, There is no better way to protect those expensive lenses than with a Platinum 58mm UV protected lens cover to protect and to filter in perfect lighting for those perfect digital pictures and videos. It's a great protective filter/cover!

    This is the best way to protect your investment in your lens! The filter is cheap, the lenses that are protected are not! I dropped a camera case and the result was a shattered filter - not the lens! I purchased a replacement ASAP! I recommend this for all your lenses (I have all of mine protected with UV filters.)

    Filters do two things, it protects the lens from scratches, and it does that perfectly and it filters the light. My favorites are UV and Polarizing filters. I've bought one of each from Best Buy and very happy with the results of both. I'll be there again for my next filter soon as I need one.

    We purchased the lens filter to serve as a protection device for our camera lens. It's an inexpensive way to protect our investment. I wish the camera had come with one to start with but it was easy enough to find the filter at Best Buy.

    Must Have for My Canon Lenses

    I need to play catch-up on my filters. I just started purchasing them with each new Canon lens that I buy and now I need to back track and buy filters for my prior Canon lens purchases. Not only does the lens filter out the UV rays so your pictures will look amazing but it also protects your lens from scratches.

    The filter has a really cheap feel, but that is to be expected at this price. Took a little patience to fit onto the lens. The lack of threads on the front of the filter is a problem if you want to use an additional filter with this one. This will do the job preventing dust and light scratches.

    Can't say much for filters. Either they do the job or they don't. I like the Platinum - 58mm UV Lens Filter and use it on all my lenses for my new lenses with my new FujiFilm camera! They do the job for me and are reasonably priced. I would NEVER let a lense go unprotected!

    These aren't static resistant so it actually attracts more dust than the actual lens. I didn't notice any major distortion or softness from the glass but it does seem to flare more often than without it, even with the hood on my nifty 50.

    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.

    I went to Best Buy to get a polarizer. However, a rep talked me out of it and said he recommends the UV filter. I’ve got it, but returned it for the kit instead. That kit had a ND filter, polarizer, and a uv filter

    This UV Filter works fine. Purchased while my lenses were new, it keeps fingerprints and dust of the optic entirely. No noticeable image degradation and definite piece of mind for protecting the lens.
