Excerpt: I have had Tiffen filters in my lenses for a number of years. Recently I upgraded to a Nikon D5100 and noticed lot more noise in my indoor pictures. I also had to increase sharpness of pictures in post processing. I read some reviews about how the quality of the filters can affect the pictures. So, decided to try out this highly rated filter. True to the reviews, I could see visible difference in my pictures - they are much sharper and with less noise.
Excerpt: I use the hell out of my gear but try to "baby" my lenses. I got this to cover a Canon EF 40mm 1;2.8 "pancake" lense that I received as a gift. Solid, easy to clean, scratch resistent and no noticable distortion at a very reasonable price.
Excerpt: I bought two of these for my lumix cameras. I shoot with polarizers frequently and really dark ND filters for long exposure work in the daylight. These filters are sturdy and crystal clear. These UV Filters stay on the lenses at all times between each lens and all other filters and caps - even when a lens is off the cam and in the bag it wears this filter. Never go without them.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
