Excellent filter to protect your lens
on July 31, 2016
My wife received this UV filter as a gift and she’s extremely happy with it. She tends to be rough with her electronic gadgets, so having a protective filter for her camera lens was a priority. She used it on an early evening photo shoot with only sunlight and it performed excellently; no glare, no green reflection from a light source as another reviewer mentioned, no ghosting - all the images were crisp.
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.
