Tiffen UV Protection filter Film, as well as video, often exhibits a greater sensitivity to what is to us invisible, ultraviolet light. This is most often outdoors, especially at high altitudes, where the UV-absorbing atmosphere is thinner; and over long distances, such as marine scenes. It can show up as a bluish color cast with color film, or it can cause a low-contrast haze that diminishes details, especially when viewing far-away objects, in either color or black-and-white. Ultraviolet filters absorb UV light generally without affecting light in the visible region. Using a Tiffen UV Protector on your Digital HD DSLR While the UV Protection filter has served its purpose in the film era for many years it will still continue to be one of the most popular choices in accessories today. Digital cameras have blocks, auto correction and digital filters that combat the bluish color cast therefore making the UV Protection filter a simple protector for your lens to combat dirt, finger prints & that fateful knock or drop.

Top Customer Reviews
The negative reviews discussing the reflections and ghosting got us curious about how this filter would perform using artificial light. Happily, we couldn’t find any difference with an artificial light source, either.
Sometimes when reading reviews, it’s difficult to know which to give more weight since some people can hate a product while others love it. I always try to be as helpful in my reviews as possible, so if you find this helpful, consider letting me know below; understanding which reviews people like helps me to improve what I focus on (photos, videos, pros/cons, etc…)
Just so that you can see for yourself how this filter performs, we took two super quick shots with both the overhead kitchen lights on and the oven light on - one picture is with the filter, one is without it. We analyzed both shots and couldn’t find a difference. I’m including both so you can see for yourself what (almost) the same shot looks like with and without this filter. I bet you can’t tell which one had the filter!
If you are having issues with reflections and you want a filter that will specifically improve that, then this is not your filter, since it doesn’t change anything about the shot. However, if you want a filter that serves to protect your very expensive lens without altering your shot, I can’t recommend this filter more.
Also: big plus for being MADE IN THE USA!

I have noticed that several reviews I have written on items purchased through Amazon have had the "Verified Purchase" removed incorrectly and as a result are no longer visible, which is likely happening to other people as well. When you read reviews, be sure to sort by 'All reviews' since there is obviously a bug in the system and many helpful and detailed reviews are now hidden.
I put this on Canon EF 50mm F1.4 USM. I know this lens won't be sharp picture when wide open aperture but when
put this tiffin filter, focus won't be clear anymore. It's just killing your lens, camera and precious time and memory.
I recently purchased HOYA filter which is a few $ more expensive than this tiffin filter in Amazon however, that is
much worth to pay. Look at the picture, I believe no word needed to tell the difference.
Tiffin, it's just a plain glass or rather low quality plain glass. If you are beginner but becoming serious about photo shooting
and already spending much for lens and camera, why not spend a few $ more.
This UV filter cuts haze just as well as the pricy B+W (I own a few and love the slim profile ones).
I suppose that there are other photo snobs like me who would disagree with my assessment, however I used to run a digital imaging lab at a museum and have really discerning standards -- so take that for whatever it's worth. I am also an exhibited photographer in two major international museums, and used these filters in the making of those images.
This item was exactly as described and arrived quickly, and was packaged well for shipping.
I discovered that since there are just different "sizes" of the lens that I bought, I need to review them both for here.
I still have the 58mm on the two lenses below, but also I have the 52mm filter on my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II. Again, the thread fit well directly to the camera and do not need adaptors; no visual distortion and UV filtering works as expected.
However, I have discovered that with typical night use, on all three of the filters there is ghosting congruent with the shape of reflections of lit objects. It varies from whitish-yellow to a faint green tint that reflects to both corners of the photograph. I've also noticed this with low-light or sunset/sunrise conditions. If you don't mind having idiosyncrasies of uncoated filters, this may not bother you; however if you shoot regularly in low-light or highly reflective situations, I recommend an anti-glare coated filter (regardless of size). Otherwise, for an amateur or sub-pro photographer using in mostly daylight conditions this filter will work well.
The 58mm UV filter I have on two lenses: the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Telephoto and the Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM Wide Angle lenses. The filter screws in without an adapter on both lenses--you will never need adapters for threading these filters. UV correction does well and there is no distortion. I've actually tapped these filters a couple of times on accident before I got hoods on them, and they are still scratch-free. Highly recommended for any lens with a 58mm thread--don't ruin a lens because you refuse to splurge on a protective filter!
