Excerpt: My first and perhaps only UV(0) filter. Attached this flter to my Fujifilm XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens.
Great build and image quality, no flare seen so far. S-HMC really shows on the glass surface.
Excerpt: I have been using Hoya filters for years now. Screw on easily to my lenses, clear, doesn't distort the color. I never have anything but good feelings for Hoya filters and will probably use them exclusively for all my filter needs.
Excerpt: All you can really say about a UV filter is an absence of negatives. You can't tell it's there in ordinary photograpy.It doesn't fall off your lens. It doesn't add color casts. I have no idea if it really blocks UV rays.
Excerpt: I first purchased a very inexpensive filter for lens protection, and found the filter to be lacking under some "extreme" conditions. Like light hitting the side of the filter ... I purchased a new camera, and placed the old filter on the new camera and was again disapointed.
