Works fine but coating tough to clean 12 Nov 2013
By P.K. Frary - Published on
Verified Purchase
The last Hoya HMC filter I bought was the HMC Pro, their top tier Japan-made model 10 years ago. Since then the HMC moniker migrated to the budget offshore line (Philippines) and now the king of the heap is the Hoya 37mm HD2 UV (Ultra Violet) 8-layer Multi-Coated Glass Filter, setting you back you $55 (!) for the 37mm size. Ouch! Hence I purchased the frugally priced HMC NTX to protect my Olympus 17mm F/2.8 prime. While this filter does its duty, the frame/rim finish and workmanship are not up to the standards of yesteryear: sticky rim threads, uneven finish and the coating is tough to clean. Those old Hoya HMC were works of art so hang on to it if you have one! But for $20 this HMC is okay and protects your lens from salt spray, doggie noses and fingerprints. If you need perfection there's always the Hoya 37mm HD2 UV (Ultra Violet) 8-layer Multi-Coated Glass Filter.

Cannot beat Hoya glass 24 Mar 2013

We cover all our camera lenses the minute they come out of the box with Hoya glass filters for protection.

The UV multicoated glass does not interfere with the function of the lens or shift color at all.

Got turned on to Hoya glass years ago by my eye doctor. My eyeglasses, I have VERY bad vision, are all Hoya lenses and their anti-glare coatings and scratch resistance is phenomenal.

Have NEVER scratched a Hoya glass filter in 20+ years of photography.

Cannot recommend this filter more highly.

Not sure it's as good as the previous HMC(o) filter 30 April 2013
By DaMacGuy - Published on

I previously bought some Hoya HMC(o) UV filters made in Japan from Amazon. The NXT filters are intended as the replacement for that series, but I'm not sure they're as good as the old ones were. They can be hard to clean, and my gut feeling is that the coating isn't as effective as the old multicoating was for reducing flare and reflections. It does the job of protecting the lens, but I'm not as confident in these NXT filters as the old HMC filters. The jury is still out on this one.

Inexpensive security 13 Mar 2013
By Ronald Viola - Published on
Verified Purchase
For not much money I decided to purchase this filter to protect my expensive lens from dirt and scratches. In high humidity days no moisture or fog appeared between lens and filter. This filter does not interfere with my lens hood and the quality of my pictures are equal to pictures taken without filter.

Nice filter for the price 24 Dec 2013
By A. Craig - Published on
Verified Purchase
I generally use UV filters strictly for the purpose of protecting the front lens element on all my lenses. With most cheap UV filters, if shooting into or near the sun this can result in sun spots of light refraction against the top lens. Although this does still happen with this filter, and I would think any filter I find it a bit less prevalent and me not finding myself taking the filter off altogether as frequently. I think it us worth the extra few dollars to go with this better filter.
