Excerpt: Great protection for my newly acquired 70-200 F2.8 VR-II lens. I have used it in the past on my other high quality professional lenses. Also a plus for filtering out UV, easy to keep clean, and will not scratch easy. I definitely would buy and highly recommend this product . . . !
Excerpt: i always thought a filter was a filter until i put this one on, never again will i buy anouther tiffen.i was ready to buy a new lens and it was just my cheap tiffen filter, all i can say is amazing, unreal, the difference.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
Excerpt: I use this product primarily for lens protection but being able to filter out UV is also a plus in my book. Indispensable in my book and the minimal amount it effects quality of a photo is worth its weight in gold in lens protection in the harsh environments I travel into.
Excerpt: I used to use the UV lenses primaily to protect my expensive lenes. I purchased this new Hoya 77mm HD2 UV Filter along with the Canon 10 - 22 mm Lens and I am blown away at the difference between my older UV lenes and the Hoya HD2. This thing is so clear and anti-reflective, I want to touch it to make sure there is really glass in the frame.
durability light transmission and dirt repellant coating
8 September 2012
Summary: Filter with coatings which really do repel dirt and fingerprints, fingerprints just don't stick; nice! When dirty, it cleans very easily too. And the polarizing filters allow about one full stop more light to come through.(Most polarizers lose two stops of light.) The Hoya HD filters are much better than anything I've ever used due to their high durability and superior light transmission.
Summary: Great filter, almost immune to finger prints and anything else you can come across when shooting. I have this on my Nikon 24-70mm and it is a dream combo. I would recommend this filter to anyone wanting to pair a filter to a quality lens.
