B+W 77mm UV filter works as advertised

jemaerca, PriceGrabber

  • Summary: There are two schools of thought on filters. One camp would say that filters are needed as protection for more expensive optics. The other camp says that the degradation in image quality is not worth the advantages. I'm clearly of the former school of thought and have filters on all my lenses. I like B+W filters because they are as optically transparent as any other filter out there, meaning they don't mess with the image quality of the pictures I take.
  • Pros: Build quality, scratch resistance, ease of cleaning
  • Cons: Price

B+W UV Filter

  • Summary: B+W's high quality brass ring minimizes binding, allowing the filter to screw on/off a lens smoothly. The retaining rings, seamlessly bonded to the glass, secure the glass in place with absolutely no play. The matte black finish is flawless. I have also used Hoya HMC and find that greasy smudges come off the B+W more easily. This alone almost makes it worth the extra price. Highly recommended.
  • Pros: Build Quality, Ease of Cleaning
  • Cons: Price

B+W MRC UV Filter

  • Summary: I use this filter mainly for my Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0 L lens. It is thin enough to avoid any vignetting on my 1.6 crop 30D. The brass ring makes the filter feel heavy and solid. What I love most is its multiple resistant coating. I don't see any "ghost" reflection when taking landscaping photos. Also dusting is relative easy. The price is a bit high but you pay for what you get. Hight recommended!
  • Pros: High quality class, perfect multiple resistant coating
  • Cons: High Price

B+W 77mm UV Filter Filter

ramuman, PriceGrabber
25 May 2006
  • Summary: I use this filter solely to protect the front element on my Canon 24-70mm F/2.8L lens. Its a $80 protection for a $1100 lens. In that sense its reasonable, but for a coated piece of glass, it is a bit pricey. Also, point light sources sometimes result in a "glow" around them on dark backgrounds, something the lens by itself does not do.
  • Pros: Nearly transparent, no noticable loss of image quality
  • Cons: Cost, some issues with specular lights

Insurance for my L glass

  • Summary: I have two of these: one for my 24-70L and one for my 70-200IS. While the filters aren't exactly cheap, I consider them insurance while out in the field. They complement the L lenses to provide weatherproof capabilities. The filter is very clear and produces no optical distortion that I can tell. It screws securely into the filter threads on the lens. The filter is very easy to clean.
  • Pros: Quality: no optical distortion such as glare or vignetting.
  • Cons: None.

The best 77mm filter out there

  • Summary: B+W is one of the most famous companies that makes the best filters for cameras. This 77mm filter is not like any other cheap filters on the market now. It is very high quality and will not degrade your photo. Since we photographer already spent so much on the camera and lenses, why do we give up the picture quality at the last step to those cheap filters? With this nice filter, we can maintain the picture quality and protect the lenses we own.
  • Pros: 1. Quality, quality, quality 2. Scratch resistance
  • Cons: None

Best UV filter for expensive lens

18 December 2005
  • Summary: Bought a canon 17-40L/4 lens, need a 77mm UV lens. Received it yesterday, the lens is very clear, you can't feel where the glass at. Multi-cover is very good to prevent reflection. Good making, made in Germany. B+W is a famouse filter company. I give it five stars for its quality. But not for the price, $79.99 is too expensive. You better only use it on a lens over $500.00.
  • Pros: Very clear, Good lens, Multi-Covered.
  • Cons: Too expensive

B+W 77E 77m Clear UV Haze MRC 010M Filter

BHC2004, PriceGrabber
16 January 2005
  • Summary: I purchased this UV filter for my Canon EF 17-40 4.0L lens. When I first received this filter, my felling was "why did they send a metal loop to me, there is no glass in the middle!". Then I realized that the class was so clean that I couldn't see it without holding it under the light. B+W UV MRC filters maintain their good German quality, and the copper loop has a solid feeling in your hand. It is a good protection for your expensive lens.
  • Pros: Good quality, multi-resistance coated (MRC) to protect your lenses, easy to clean.
  • Cons: Too expensive, in comparison with other brand products.

  • Summary: Bought this MRC UV filter for a $1700 Canon L lens. It is expensive, but in relation to the lens it is cheap insurance. Can't see any imperfections when held up to the sun: crystal clear just like my lens. Be sure to get the MRC version.
  • Pros: Quality of filter glass is as good as, if not better than, the lens itself
  • Cons: Expensive
