After a couple of weeks of shooting, it wasn't necessary to switch. I have used Hoya, Tiffen, Nikon, and B + W UV glass filters of varying threaded diameters in the last 4 decades. Surprisingly, this Sigma is the best threaded glass UV filter I have owned.
It wasn't until I flipped it around and looked at the side that faces outward that I could see light reflecting off the lens.
On the camera (a Canon HF S10) it's much the same story. The lens certainly doesn't degrade the quality of what you are recording. But stray light is now a thing of the past.
I am happy with my purchase and have decided to leave the filter on all the time.
I'm updating my review a few weeks later to re-iterate what a great filter this is. I was reminded just how much light noise this little gem cleans up when I swapped it out for a new wide angle lens I received (from another manufacturer). The wide angle lens had lens flaring and aberations galore.
By contrast I have yet to experience any lens flaring at all in practical shooting conditions with this filter on.
I wish Sigma made a 58mm wide angle lens.
Edit: After using these for a couple of months I wanted to add that I do still get some lens flare when shooting with wide-aperture primes (50mm 1.4 especially) in lower light situations with light sources in frame (I know, many are saying "duh", looking back it seems obvious, but wasn't to me at the time). The result is small green dots (same number as light sources) showing up. I did a comparison with the Sigma, a Tiffen UV, and Ziekos "multi-coated" filter in the identical situation. The flare with the Sigma filter is significantly less - smaller dots, green instead of white, and lower intensity. But they're still there, compared to none without a filter in place. The Sigma still stands as the best filter I own, but it made me rethink my mantra of always having a filter on my lenses.
I'd recommend this for lenses in the price range of 300 to 500 dollars. Anything above that, I'd highly recommend checking out the tiffen digital ht line. They are a bit pricey, but nothing matches them for durability and performance.
This product is a "keeper".
In 30+ years of amateur photography, I've bought a good many other brands of UV filters, more as lens protectors than to actually counter UV hazing.
In my unscientific opinion, this Sigma UV filter stands out as superior as regards the hazing. Worth the extra money as compared to others which I have used.
It does not produce its own lens flare, as some other brands can.
I have not tried the "top range" or "professional grade", but then I can't deduct my hobby related expenses from my taxes, either. So there might be even better UV filters out there.
But this item seems to help produce noticeably better/sharper images - to my eyes, at least - especially with my "prime", (although not "L" class) lenses.
