Was looking at may of these UV filters to protect the lens of my new SLR, read all the UV filter vs. No filter but for me and I'd think most no-pros the benefits of protection and size (as opposed to having lens hood) far out weight any negatives. But lets not start that debate...

After look it became apparent to me that if your going to have a filter, it really ought to be a multi coated one. Which made it easier to search, saw Hoya was 'king' but with that came a price, which put me off. So kept looking and found this truly multi coated and affordable filter - damm close the price of decent single coated ones.

Finally note, this isn't some random brand has long roots (know this by the fact that my Grandpa has some old equipment form them)
So i'm no real expert, but can say this: Buy Hoya you will be really pleased, buy Agfa won't notice any difference - but your wallet will.

5.0 out of 5 stars AGFA UV protector 29 Aug 2012
By AD
Verified Purchase
I bought two of these filters to fit on my SLR and spare lens and have been very pleased with the overall quality and ease with which they screwed on. They came in secure plastic boxes with a sponge innard.

In my view, well worth the few pence/pounds more than the cheapest brands, as they primarily protect the most expensive and vulnerable part of the camera.

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality for the price but thick 25 May 2012
By Faxanadu - Published on Amazon.com

This is a good quality UV filter - no issues with image flaring and halos. Note - this is MUCH thicker than the Hoya UV filters (they are very slim) but glass seems to be of about the same quality. Does its job at a decent price point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product for Amazing Price 16 Feb 2013
By BioMechanicalWeapons - Published on Amazon.com

I decided to buy 2 of these filters for my Nikon Lenses. When I took the first one out, it felt well constructed and the glass was crystal clear with no imperfections. I then held it under a light source and saw how the reflection was minimized due to the multi coating. Put it on my 35mm 1.8g Nikkor lens and shot some pictures with no degradation in image quality. I highly recommend these over other filters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great UV filter!! amazing flare killer!! 24 Jan 2014
By Mike Shih - Published on Amazon.com

I've tested a lot of low cost UV filters... besides the quality, they all had one problem. LENS FLARES!!!!
I did some candle light event shoots, I had nothing but flares with other filters.
I finally got tired of it, and ordered 1 B+W multi coated filter, and one AGFA Multi coated filter.
the B+W was will over $30, and with very very little flare. i was happy but not with the price tag.

Then I got the AGFA UV filter, it's amazing!!!!!!!
its less than $10, and i get about the same or less flares i get with the expensive B+W filter.
I was so impressed!!!! I am def. going to order AGFA filters from now on!

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT ENOUGH THREADS 25 April 2013
By No Pilikia - Published on Amazon.com

Like most people I use these clear UV filters to protect my lens, in this case an expensive Canon EF-S 18-200 ($1100 retail, $569 Amazon). I previously had a Tiffen and it did it's job but suffered very minor scratches that can be felt more than they can be seen but I decided at this price to go ahead and replace it. I elected this AGFA as it seemed to me (perhaps incorrectly) that its anti-reflective coatings were better. There is a huge range of prices for this type of filter and I assume that that is due to how good the coatings are?
When I received the filter (super promptly with Prime!) it was difficult to thread on, perhaps not perfectly round or imperfect threads. It seemed "on" but the 1st time I used it out in the field it popped off and I could not get it on securely. I immediately sent it back and then bought a second one. This time it was easy to "start" threading it on but was totally insecure. I had to push it very firmly into the lens and then thread it extremely tightly to make it secure as it is "hanging on" by only a thread or 2.
If you look at the Tiffen and AGFA side by side you see an obvious difference in number of threads!
It now seems secure but I am concerned that it will be difficult to remove with time and inevitable "bumps" (Hey, what good is a camera if you baby it and leave it at home!)

So in summary
-the price is great
-presumably its coatings are high quality
-Amazon service and Prime are top notch
-they somehow failed to include enough threads

4.0 out of 5 stars massive price jumps, might make buying this filter a waiting game... 6 April 2013
By trebe - Published on Amazon.com
I paid $5.99 for this AGFA filter, and am quite satisfied with its quality and performance. It seems to be well made, the glass isn't loose, and there is a visible coating on the lens, that does not appear to have any noticeable effect on the color of the images.

At the sub-eight dollar level, this filter seems to be a solid buy. Unfortunately the pricing for AGFA filters seems subject to some huge price swings at Amazon. I bought mine from BMG Sales, but when they sold out, the price jumped up to the $30 level. If the cost is in that neighborhood when you read this, you might want to wait a bit and see if it drops back down.

I also had good experiences with AGFA's 77mm UV filter, which only cost $7.99, and was again purchased from BMG Sales. This item, has also been subject to large price fluctuations.

While I normally use Hoya UV filters, I have been impressed by the quality of AGFA. Except for the price issue, I would have no reservations about recommending AGFA. If I were to spend $30, I would buy a Hoya. If you can get this AGFA at a favorable price, you may be very pleasantly surprised.
