Hoya UV filter
28 June 2014
Summary: Better price than Jessops own brand, but better quality.Does not affect performance of camera. Leave on the lens permanently to protect expensive lens.Can screw on other filters, such as circular polariser whilst in situ.
Summary: These are pretty much the best UV filters you can buy for the money. They came first place in a UV filter roundup on [@].To the previous reviewer - if you're careless enough to bounce a camera off a bed, I can't see how the filter is to blame. 2 stars isn't justified when it's you that is at fault.
Pros: Clear Optics, Easy To Use, Firm Mount, Great value for money
Summary: I accept it may be OK for "normal scratch dust use" but camera bounced off a bed on arrival at hotel on to floor. The filter smashed and in process badly scratched the Tramron lens element. There was no other visible damage to Nikon D90 nor lens. So rather than protecting lens it was the indirect cause of expensive damage. I would accept this could be considered a hard test and was lucky no further damage.
Pros: Clear Optics, Easy To Use, Firm Mount, Normal use OK
Cons: Breakage bad lens scratch, Caused £142 damage, Weak Construction
