Technical Details


Product Description

Digitally Optimised (DG) Filters EX DG filters benefit from Sigma's multi-layer lens coating, developed to counteract the highly reflective characteristic of image sensors. With older style filters, light would reflect off the image sensor, bounce off the lens and filter elements and re-enter the image sensor, creating a ghost image. The multi-layer coating dramatically reduces this effect. In addition to this, an optimum, neutral colour balance is ensured, increasing the white balance accuracy of the digital camera. Multi-coated UV Filter This filter perfectly eliminates the harmful effect of ultraviolet light. The multi-coated UV filter can be used with both colour and black-and-white film anddigital sensors. This is the most suitable filter for protective use and generalphotography.

This filter has excellent performance, practically no distortion in my photographs and it protects my lens very well.
If you are looking for a filter, don't go with the cheap options, get one that will garantee not only to give protection, but that also has a good glass and it's multicoated.

I've tried original Sony's and the cheap filter kits from Amazon.com, I would not by anything but Sigma Multicoated.

I actually own 4 other companies that make the exact same product, next to canon and sigma and a hand full of others, this is far the better ones and for the asking price. No Ghosting, aberrations, etc... thus far, only had this for a year. But I have used it in nearly all aspects of lighting and shooting. Definitely get a multi coated lens, you will notice the difference, perhaps in focusing (auto) or white balance... Rarely the case. but do the little things like getting a above average lens to help your shots.

I use this sigma filter mainly for protecting my lense, and it doesn't affect the picture quality at all, which is great. Highly recommend it.

The Filter is fine and clear. I bought this before I did any real research and made a rookie photographer mistake. Since this filter is for a lens on a DSLR camera, which is already UV resistant This filter really is redundant and just adds an extra piece of glass to the front element. There is really no protective value for the lens and in many outdoor lighting situations you may be adding reflections or halos to your shots. If you want to protect the lens, get and properly fit a lens hood, which adds a little protection. But these filters aren't really necessary for DSLR lenses....They were originally designed for film camera lenses to begin with and turned into a marketing tool for the newer cameras.
Have a look at some of my research and decide for yourself:
[...]
and
[...]
In all the filter is fine, I just wouldn't buy any more for what I need.

(Well apparently Amazon took out my links, so have a look at DPreview dot com and look for article #8049091537)

I find Sigma, B+W and some Hoya filters to be the nicest in the camera market. Since I own mostly Sigma lenses why not use their filters? Unless I have a shot at B+W filters at a price close to Sigma's with multi coatings. It seems that industry and science have yet again joined hands and have applied a coating to filters that either repels or just plain makes it difficult for stuff to stick to the filters surface, i.e., large dust and blown dirt and other rubbish and they clean easier but do not affect the quality of my photos. Also the stock lens caps seem to hold on tighter. Again I have no explanation for this other than superior made products.

Down through the years I have gone from no UV filters to protect my lenses to not using a lens until I have one to screw onto the lens for protection/insurance. Case in point, years ago driving in stop-and-go traffic, camera and 24-105mm lens on camera I was forced to do a radicle movement to miss and accident (or to contribute to one) and the whole shebang hit the floorboard on the passenger side, denting the UV filter and not the lens. Damage was so minor I didn't even replace the now bent filter. No damage to either lens or camera.

Ever since then I buy at least UV filters for the lenses I buy. The lenses cost like nothing in the past, are more complex and one more inexpensive insurance policy on the end of the lens helps keep dust, dirt and other rubbish (bird poo for birders) off my lens proper. I have used everything from ultra cheep to quite expensive. What I choose now is fairly expensive. Why? Your lens manufacturer used special coatings for light to pass through the lens and to help with lowering possible CA from your photos. Why not use a multicoated UV or other filter that has a similar coating?

This multi-coated UV filter is great for a protective filter. The multi-coated aspect makes it a little more expensive but I like them far better than the cheap glass of a single or non-coated version. I think it's worth the extra money.

I have 3 of these 52mm, 58mm, and 62mm. That should say enough about the quality of this product. The quality of glass and coating is splendid and I couldn't tell any difference between the images taken with and without the filter. I'm not a pro by any means but these filters are value for money and give your lenses an extra bit of protection. I have mine snapped on the lenses all the time.

I purchased this filter as more of a protection item for my lens than a UV filter. The fit on my Sigma 18-250mm lens is perfect. I have taken pictures with and without this filter on and there is very little if any noticeable negative effect on getting a true picture so in that aspect I couldn't be happier.
