Only for small aperture lenses/settings 7 Aug. 2010
By Mr. Vijay Venkataraman - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I don't like using unnecessary filters on my lenses (I have a B+W CPL as the only other filter I use), but I wanted to protect my 10-22mm without spending a ton. I wanted to give this multi coated filter a shot for its incredibly low price. After receiving this, I did a bunch of RAW tests with and without the filter in bright sunlight and with the bright sun in the pictures, and I could not see any perceptible difference between having the filter on or off. If anything, there was very minor improvement with the filter on (this was on a hazy evening and pixel peeping at 100%). There is no vignetting at 10mm. Excellent value.

Update 10/31/2010:
I tested this Zeikos on my large aperture Sigma 50mm f/1.4 @ f/1.4 with a light source in the picture frame and I found prominent halo and internal reflections with this filter on. My Hoya MRC filter showed no haze or internal reflections and was indistinguishable from no filter on. As a result, I have decided to downgrade my recommendation for this filter to average. This is not a filter to be used on large aperture lenses with significant light sources in the picture frame.

I know the package says it's multi-coated... 20 May 2010
By W. B. Halper - Published on Amazon.com

...but you sure can't tell by looking at it.

The purpose of multi-coating is to reduce reflections from the surface of the glass. These filters appear to have the same reflectivity as a plain piece of glass. And, unlike every other multi-coated filter that I own, reflections from this Zeikos filter are untinted. As far as I know, that's pretty much impossible with a true multi-coated filter.

My conclusion? Either the filters I received have serious manufacturing defects or somebody is shading the truth. Since other reviewers have commented about the lack of tinted reflections, I'm assuming it's the latter. Both filters (the 52 and 72mm) have been returned to Amazon for refund.

UV filter 25 Nov. 2009
By Victor Garcia - Published on Amazon.com

These filters are good, but not great. I would definitely recommend them, but there are better ones out there. These are cheapest multi coated filters that I have been able to find. I owned some other "tiffen" ones, but they sucked, and were not multi coated.

They did show some glare in the pictures, but it was MINIMAL compared to the non coated ones I previously had. The only other option is to buy 30-40 dollar multi coated filters. Pass on that.

I'm a person that likes to always have the filters on for protection, so I bought 4 for all my lenses.... This was the cheapest way to do it.

Works great, no difference in image 6 Aug. 2009
By "Tiger" s SAM - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I got this to protect the stock lens of my Canon XS. Took me a couple tries to thread the filter on to the lens. The pictures with the filter on show no visible difference from the ones without.

Pros
- Multi-coated unlike the Tiffen filter
- No scratches
- Auto focus is still fast. I couldn't tell the difference
- cheap

Cons
- Threading could be a little better. Although, it doesn't bother me because I don't plan on removing it from the lens often.

Not Multi-coated 10 Nov. 2010
By nako - Published on Amazon.com

The product name is mislabeled. This is not a multi-coated filter. It may or may not be single coated on both sides. Multi-coated lenses show a faint purple or green reflection. This shows a natural color reflection, indicating uncoated or single coating. Additionally, consider that it is not mentioned on the actual packaging nor printed on the ring that it is multicoated or even single coated.

For the three dollars that I got it for, this would be a 3-4 star rated 58mm uncoated UV filter. It works fine as an uncoated filter, except that the filter threads do not properly fit both the EF-S 18-55mm and the EF-S 55-250mm, whereas the Hoya 58mm UV MC Filter does fit both perfectly. The filter stays on, but it may damage your threads if you tighten it properly.

I would recommend this if you don't care about glare or the thread fitting properly. If you keep it on a lens that you don't use much for protection, it should be fine. If you are sensitive about image and manufacturing quality, buy the Hoya 58mm UV MC Filter or equivalent instead.
