Excerpt: Used it to attach to a Canon 24-105L lens. Hoya HD filters are the strongest in the business I believe. I wanted a strong filter to protect front element of lens, that was my main reason for purchase. I could not tell if it degraded image quality.
Excerpt: Great multi-coated protective filter to avoid light reflection from the main lens back into the filter and then into the sensor. Though UV and haze is not much an issue for digital sensor, it is nice to know that the HD glass is an extra strong glass material which protects the front of the lens for any accidental contact. It is a very clear glass which is seems almost invisible when looking at the filter itself. Lens cap and additional polarized filter fits well.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Low profile, Reliable, Strong Glass, Very clear
Excerpt: I use this to protect the glass on my expensive Nikon lens. This glass protection filter seems to work well and I can discern no noticeable degradation. I decided to try it first on a lens less known for its sharpness and low distortion and I'm satisfied with it there.
Excerpt: I bought the 77mm clear protection glass filter for my expensive lens. I am hoping I never have to find out if it actually does what it is supposed to. It is heavy and well built. Fits into my lens easily and needed no special equipment to put it on.
Excerpt: A local dealer told me that Hoya was bought out by Kenko and he tried to sell me a Kenko UV filter when I asked for a Hoya clear filter. Obviously Hoya is alive and well, and B&H will get all my business from now on. The Hoya Clear Protection Filter does what it's supposed to do and is easy to keep clean. I got my first Hoya filter about 40 years ago and it is still just as good as the day I got it.
