High Quality German Filters

From the Manufacturer

Protect Your Lens while Reducing UV Exposure

This UV Filter blocks the invisible Ultra Violet component of light from the sky, which can cause blur and to which many color films react with a blue cast. These filters should be called UV-Blocking Filters, because there are filters for technical applications that pass UV radiation and block all the other wavelengths. Nevertheless, the short term “UV Filter” has become established among photographers. UV Filters are ideal for photography in high altitudes (in the mountains), by the sea and in regions with very clean air. The pictures gain brilliance and disturbing blue casts are avoided. Because the glass is colorless, color rendition is not altered, aside from the elimination of the unwanted blue cast, and no increase in exposure is required. That makes a UV Filter very suitable as protection of the front element of the taking lens against dust, flying sand, sea water spray and the like, and it can be kept on the lens at all times. It is recommended for analog color and black-and-white as well as digital photography.

Coated to Improve Image Quality

Each glass surface is vacuum coated with one layer of Anti-Reflection coating. This single layer helps to prevent internal ghosting and reflections. It also improves light transmission from approximately 92% (uncoated glass) to over 98%.

F-Pro Brass Filter Mount

This filter uses our standard B+W F-Pro filter mount, which has a front accessory thread and is made of brass. Compared to the earlier standard mount, the F-Pro mount, introduced in 2001, has become thinner. Now it can be used with wide angle lenses, including most 24mm focal lengths on a full frame body, without vignetting. Another advantage of the F-Pro mount is its modified retaining ring, which is no longer threaded in from the front, but holds the filter glass in place from the back. When removing a filter or lens hood that has been screwed on too tight to the filter, the retaining ring is not at risk of loosening.

While it is expensive, go with the
B+W 62mm UVA (Ultra Violet) Haze MRC Filter #010
version instead with the MRC coating.

There are two aspects to a protective filter, one is the degree in which the filter does not give any ghosting, minimizes flare, while keeping an optically pure path.
This and other multi-coated filters will do this fine, such as hoya, sigma, b+w (not tiffen, bower, and brand x)

The next step is durability.
I have several sigma filters, and while they are optically great, the coating on them is very fragile, i.e., they gets knicks in the coating from even a bit of dust it seems, maybe some wind blew a bit of sand, but very fragile.
I have not had the couple hoyas long enough to tell, seem better than the sigmas in terms of durability, however from reviews i have read it is an issue.

I did some research into the MRC coating that some of the B+W filters have, which the manufacturer claims is harder than glass. I have this same type of coating on a pair of eyeglasses and it is the first eyeglasses i have had that do not get scratched (over 2+ years).

Basically, if you want the filter to still be in good shape over time, then get the hardened coating instead, which for this filter is the
B+W 62mm UVA (Ultra Violet) Haze MRC Filter #010
(Notice the MRC as part of the product name), it cost about $20 more, but what to do?

Size Name: 37mm
I have purchased filters made by Tiffen, Hoya, Heliopan, and B+W. B+W filters are made by Schneider optics, the same company that now owns Century Precision Optics. The Century lenses are the best out there, and the B+W filters meet the top standards as well. The metal frame on the filter is very solid and strong, I once had a Tiffen filter that got bent when trying to attach a wide angle lens onto it. And, trust me, I did not force it. The B+W is much heavier and more solid, the glass seems to have more quality and density to it as well. As for the performance, it is much clearer than the competitors and definitely performs better under high-resolution situations. No color distortion or image quality distortion whatsoever. From now on, B+W filters are the only ones that I will buy. I just wish that Amazon carried more of them.

I bought this filter for my new 50mm f/1.4 lens. Great for daytime shots, but creates ungodly flare at night. It mirrors streetlights and even bright stars onto the opposite side of the picture, so all my night shots look like there's UFOs flying around in them. If you need to point the lens into bright lights - which always creates problems - you'll need to remove this filter lest it compound those problems.

I was using an Quantaray Pro Digital filter and getting green spots from flares even with a hood. The lens was a Canon 70-200mm f/4L and it can flare sometimes without a hood, but the Quantaray filter created strange artifacts even with the hood. I switched to this B+W filter and no problems since.

I have switched entirely to B+W for all my filters except for some Cokin specialty filters which I don't want to buy for each camera and lens.

Size Name: 58mm
It is a known cosmetic side effect (artifact) of the high performance polarizing foils that Schneider/B+W uses in its True-Pols to produce a "ripple reflection" to the human eye when viewing high intensity reflected light that "bounces" off the actual polarizing foil. This is simply a "reflected artifact" and is not transmitted through the lens.

This effect is apparent when viewing the filter under certain specific lighting conditions (such as a bright table light being reflected off the polarizing foil's surface from 45 degrees behind the viewer). It appears as a slight visual "rippling" appearance in the virtual surface of the foil. You cannot see this effect under any other viewing conditions. It is an artifact from a reflection coming from the polarizing film.

This is my first B+W filter, didn't figure out the other MRC model's difference, so ordered this one.

Very well built, made in Germany, kind of heavy for such a small size filter, feels solid and robust, precisely engineered and manufactured, nice and sexy glass surface. No problem to keep the lens cap on it. I totally trust this filter and completely don't worry about it.

Ultimate filter, highly recommended.

For a simple UV filter, this thing's pretty substantial. I don't think I've held a thicker filter before, yet there's absolutely no distortion. I haven't taken a single picture without it since I recieved it. Great stuff.

I have been a user of the cheap Tiffen filters. When I bought my first over $500 lens, decided to try something better. B+W was an obvious choice from reviews and how correct they are. When I opened the box and took the filter in my hands, for a moment I thought that the filter just had the ring and didn't have the glass. The glass was that clear.

I must say that being single coated, I do get the occasional glare. Should try out the multi coated one for my next lens.

In short, if you are buying a good lens, don't spoil it with a bad filter on the front.
