Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: B+W 58mm Clear UV Haze with Multi-Resistant Coating (010M) (Electronics)
I have always used protective filters on my lenses. I had been a loyal Tiffen user for a long time but for the past couple years I felt the quality of some of their filters had been bad.
Recently I purchased a new lens and ordered the Tiffen UV Protector per usual. Unfortunately I immediately noticed that my images had really bad glare in low light situations. I knew Tiffen had better quality (or supposed)filters so I "upgraded to their Digital Ultra Clear protective filter but got the exact same issues...I had really bad glare in low light.
After some research and recommendations from other people I found B+W MRC filters. I purchased this filter and immediately put it on my lens when it came in. After several test shots (I have a room in my house that could reliably generate the same glare with the Tiffen filters) I could not find any glare at all!!!
Lesson learned...multi-coated is the way to go and even though they are higher priced...B+W MRC are very good quality that will not impact image quality.
Do NOT put cheap filters on your lenses...I used to and will never again.
