Product Description

The Hoya Ultraviolet UV(C) Haze Filter is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. The result is an average light transmission of over 97% giving sharp contrast and well balanced color. Hoya HMC filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of today's multicoated digital lenses. Multicoated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.   • Good choice for digital photography • If desired it can be left on the lens at all times for protection • Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details • Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees

Customer Reviews

Usually can't go wrong with a Hoya filter.
Bob F.
Hardly any reflection seen from 45 degree angle against light source.
Francis Wong
So far, I cannot say that the lens hinders the photo quality at all.

People are often split between "whether or not" when it comes to using such filters (generally, UV/haze) for lens protection. It is rarely about the cost itself (there are many inexpensive ones available) but their impact on quality. Every additional glass will ALWAYS have an effect, also in terms of how much light gets through (the transmissive factor). OTOH, lenses are a lot more expensive and one may be better off guaranteeing as much protection to them as possible. I fall in the latter category, while cautiously acknowledging the former.

Hoya UV filters, especially the multi-coated and super-multicoated ones, are excellent. Their adverse effect is minimal (and transmissive properties are among the best as well). And they are often not obscenely priced. I have B+W filters that are pretty good, but they come with a price tag while offering similar qualities.

And the slim design of the Hoya filter also got my attention as it was going to be used on the 18-55mm kit lens of my Sony NEX especially considering the wide angle. I have an older version as well used on an older lens, and that is slightly thicker.

"Hoya Multi-coated", among the best in UV protection (but then, not the key for digital sensors), among the best in transmissive factor (over 95% of the light gets thru), and protects the lens' front element from the elements. All for a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

I'm not a pro photographer, but wanted a UV filter to (primarily) protect the lens of my $1000 camera. This did the trick. No image distortion that I can detect, and the grooves are made with precision, so I had no problem screwing it into the camera's lens. You can't go wrong for the money.

This is an excellent product at a good price. I'm going to mount this on my Fuji GS645S camera. This camera has a great little lens, and it needs this protection.

The quality of the filter is good and it fits nicely. But, it seems like the photos come out slightly better without the filter. Might be good as a protective lens cover though.

I recently purchased one. Tested it by shooting into a street light during rain at night. Very pronounced flare up to f8. No flare without. Looked at the coating and it's a mess. Good price but be careful.
