Excerpt: I was looking for a quality filter from a name I could trust, and for me that was Hoya. I have used some of the other big name brands but have not been as satisfied with the quality as I have with this one. Great filter, perfect for shooting on sunny days.
Pros: Clear Optics, Easy To Use, Firm Mount, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I purchased this filter primarily to be kept permanently on the lens to protect the front element and improve resistance to water penetration. I now have it fitted to my Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II USM.Immense amounts of research led me to purchasing the Hoya 82mm UV(0) Super HMC. Amongst other qualities, the 12 layer multi coating allows 99.7% light transmission, just below the newest Heliopan, listed as having 99.8% transmission.
Excerpt: I use this filter on my Fujinon 17: 1 16x9 Movie lens and it is a nice heavy duty lens protector. I was using teh "C" compact UV before and it is was delicate. This is a very good lens protector for runa nd gun event shooting.
Summary: Hoya filters are my personal top choice for filters. I've seen their glass used even in other fields, besides imaging - but also for medical tools. This company is well-established with fine quality in their products. I would recommend these for any lens! I'm using this for my Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM II! It's great!
Excerpt: ok there's a quite big debate around the UV no UV filter subject out on the internet. Yes I know you don't really need them because the sensors do not react to UV, but it's not my main reason to use them: I want to have my lens protected from the elements when I take picture outside. So my advice is simple: buy UV filters, just don't use them if your environment is safe. Have been using those hoya HMC super for some years and am satisfied so I just stick with those.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Protects your lens
