Summary: This filter cuts glare like no others that I have used, while still allowing maxim light transmition. Light weight and extremely well built, it is a new standard for all my lenses.I find that it surpasses the performance of filters costing twice as much. Wouldn't be cought with-out one now...
Excerpt: The buid quality is high comparing to others filters I have (marumi, B+W, Hoya, Kenko). I'm having it for a week so I cannot tell more. It's made in Japan and the packagind is HQ. I hope it worths its place: in front of my new Nikon 105 f2 DC.There is no image quality drop @ 36MP (Nikon d800) so I'm happy with it. When in sale it worths the money.
Excerpt: I'm very happy with the build quality of this filter; it does what it's supposed to do. The metal used looks and feels better than that used in, e.g., Tiffen filters. Low-profile design makes it easy to use other filters without taking this one off. Would recommend.
Excerpt: I already had an inexpensive UV filter on my Sigma 18-55 mm lens. After receiving in the mail the Hoya UV Haze HD filter, I took a series of similar shots with each filter. I was surprised to observe greater clarity of detail and better contrast between sun-lit areas and shaded areas with the Hoya filter. I found that it also supports other filters (Hoya or not) on top of it just fine. I don't see a downside to this still relatively affordable UV filter.
Excerpt: I have only had this filter on my 50mm 1.2 for two weddings. I was drawn to this filter because it is scratch resistant. There is hardly any glare at all, it hardly seems as though there is a filter on my lens.
