Seems to be the perfect balance between quality and transparency
11 January 2014
Summary: Have Hoya HD UV on all of my lenses. Seems to be the perfect balance between quality and transparency - does not change the picture at all, but makes feel safer about the front lens element and cuts off excessive haze. 82mm is a bit on the expensive side.
Excerpt: Just got new Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II USM and figured that a lens of this quality deserves superior protection and optics. This filter does not dissapoint. I keep this on at all times to protect my lens and "enhance" my images. It's sleek, low profile, easy to clean and does not degrade or distort my images.
