Product Description

This high-quality Sigma UV Filter blocks the invisible UV component of light from the sky, which can cause blur and to which many color films react with a blue cast. 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. The colorless glass also makes a UV Filter very suitable as protection for the front element of your 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 color and black & white film, as well as digital photography. Multi-Layer Coating for Superior Protection: Sigma has treated this filter with a multi-layer coating process, which, in addition to its UV-blocking qualities, makes these filters especially scratch-resistant. This coating does not affect the optic characteristics of the filter, but significantly optimizes the protective effects.

In August 2008, I was going to buy the B + W F-Pro UV 010 Double Coated filter for my new Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens. But, the salesperson suggested I try the new-to-his-store Sigma DG 58mm Multi-Coated UV Filter for $10 less than the B + W. If I wasn't happy with the results, he would exchange it for the B + W.

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.

I've tried many MC UV filters with my two 12x zoom cameras, from Promaster to Hoya to B&W. The Sigma however, was the one which gave me the best results. It cut down haze more than any other UV filter I used and colors were accurate. I definitely recommend this filter and you can not beat the price.

After removing the item from the packaging I initially thought they had sent me a ring without a lens. I waved it around and held it up to several different lights but could not for the life of me see the glass.

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.

I usually buy cheap UV filters as a protector, but decided to give this a go for my 100mm macro. The coating is unbelievable, you really have to try to catch a reflection in it in order to see it. After using this for awhile on my macro I came back and ordered one for every 58mm thread lens I own. If you're going to use a filter, this (in my opinion) is hands down the best choice between performance and cost.

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 tend to stay away from filters 30 dollars or less, but thought I would give this one a shot. It looks and feels well built and performs well on both zooms and prime lenses. I usually go with higher end tiffen filters (the digital ht line), but ended up being really happy with this. It has become a semi-permanent filter on the kit lens that came with my camera. Note that this does not come with a protective case, so have one handy.

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.

I keep this filter on my Canon EF 28-105mm II lens 24/7. It's much easier to clean than the lens itself and doesn't distort my pictures. Having a filter on your lens is important, and I highly recommend this product.

I'm always concerned about glare when adding a filter to my glass but I have had no issues with this Sigma. I know there is a raging debate over having a filter but really, would you rather have the filter break or the $1,000 lens. With no discernible difference in the quality of the shots - I'll take the filter.

I don't often write reviews (considering how many sundry purchases I make from Amazon), and reserve such efforts for either the very good or very poor products.

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.
