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.
Top customer reviews
The B+W coatings clean better with microfiber cloths or even your t-shirt, and are a lot less streaky/temperamental than the cheapo filters when you're cleaning them (improperly cleaned cheapo filters will flare more, and since the cheapo filters are harder to clean, yeah no duh they will flare more). The B+Ws also last considerably longer, cheaper Marumi or other brand filters seem to be more prone to having their coatings flake off after a few years, whereas the B+W will look the same as new after that amount of time. This is why I buy B+W, because otherwise when it's clean, it's just a clear piece of glass like any other...
My 5 cents'.
B+W on the other hand are a good, mid-range price filter with low aberration, and a small enough profile on the lens. In Macro work, I take the filter off, simply because their is no need for it, and it helps my d7000 focus. Regardless of B+W's large thread ring profile, the glass is quite thin, and produced minimal flare. Theyre easy to clean and a great touch of protection for your lens.
Check out their X-Pro line as well, especially if you shoot outdoors a lot.
The only real issue that I have had with this filter is that it creates some ghosting at night when there are street lights in the frame, and the filter with the MRC coating really does a good job of preventing this. This is the only flaw that I have found in this filter and is the reason why I am giving it four stars.
I would highly recommend getting a filter for all of your lenses, not even because of the flare that it will reduce, but because of the protection that it adds to your lenses. If there's a rock or something that suddenly flies at your camera, or even if you are just in a wet, sandy, or windy environment, it'll be better for it to damage a $20 filter rather than a lens that costs hundreds of dollars.
Also, I'd highly recommend avoiding cheaper Tiffen and Bower filters because they are not of good optical quality and will noticeable reduce the quality of your image. B+W is a great brand and I would highly recommend their filters, especially those with MRC coatings.
Highly recommend this!
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.
