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

I ordered two of these, one for a Panasonic Lumix 14mm 2.5 and another for a Panasonic Lumix 20mm 1.7, both 46mm. When I received them, one turned out to be Made in Japan, the other Made in Philippines. I noticed a couple minor differences:

1. Cosmetic - The Japan filter has a glossier black paint finish, while the Philippines filter is more of a matte black metal finish.
2. Optic - I held up the filters at an angle to see the reflections from a fluorescent light bulb. The reflection from the Philippines glass is a much darker green than the Japan glass, which is a much lighter green tint. Not sure if this means there's more UV coating, but I haven't noticed any image quality differences.

I purchased this filter for a Panasonic DMC-FZ35 camera which has a Leica lens. I use the UV 0 filter for lens protection and believe that you should not cover a good lens with a piece of poor glass. This Hoya filter provides the protection I needed with the quality I was seeking.

Hoya makes very good filters. A UV filter is usually used to cover and protect the lens from the elements. If you have a good camera with an expensive lens, it doesn't make sense to put a cheap filter on it. You'll get annoying reflections and flare from inadequate coating and generally will be disappointed. Spring for a good Hoya filter you won't be sorry. I highly recommend this filter.

This is a nice filter for general protection and is suitable for most lighting conditions. I use one each on my three Micro Four Thirds lenses for my Olympus OM-D. However, I can verify another reviewer's experience with lens flare in low light, or with the sun in front of it or just off to the side. Photographing a subject in front of a fireplace with a Panasonic 25mm f/1.4, for instance, will produce flare in the form of green blobs that are not present without the filter. Given that this type of lighting is very challenging for any filter, for the price I can overlook it. If you shoot a lot in low light, I'd suggest trying some different filters and perhaps spending more for better results, or just take off the filter for certain situations. That said, this filter is a good value and I don't have any hesitation in recommending it.

I picked up a Hoya 46mm to go with my 20mm pancake for my Micro 4/3 camera. I've upgraded cameras twice but have kept the lens and lens cover to protect the glass.

I like the lens filter. It is made in the Philippines, (as stated on the side), is threaded very well, and protects my camera from the elements. The quality is good as well- my camera dropped from three feet lens downward. The lens cover actually broke from the fall, but the lens filter suffered no damage.

I have now had this filter for over two years and enjoy it a lot. There are issues with green duplicates popping up during night-time photos however, so I do have to remove the filter if I want to avoid extra work post-process. Because of this I'm removing a star, however I highly encourage everyone to work with filters just to protect the more valuable glass below.

I initially bought this for added protection for my Panasonic TM 700 camcorder lens. But it does have a noticeable affect on the picture quality. It's great! And good price.

I don't always leave a haze filter on the lens when shooting. It just depends on the situation. I do try and leave a filter on the lens when I'm either transporting the lenses or whe they are not in use for a long time.
