TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 8 April 2014
I wanted a simple UV protective filter for my new Fuji X20. I didn't want to spend crazy money on the official lens hood, adaptor, and filter set (I didn't want a lens hood!) so I got this. Pleased to say it fits perfectly and the lens cover that came with the camera fits over it fine. The quality of this filter is comparable to similar offerings from Hoya so I have no concerns about quality, given that I'd never heard of this Japanese filter brand. Recommended. One important point: to get the product I got, order direct from Amazon.co.uk rather than 3rd-party sellers. Mine is black; there doesn't seem to be any option to specify black/silver in the ordering process.

What more can be said. Oh, that I always buy Marumi filters. Excellent quality and performance. This one fits the non-standard size Fuji lens perfectly without the Fuji hood / adaptor being required.

Whilst UV filters are of limited use for digital cameras (they can be handy for film exposures which are more liable to the effects of UV) many use them as protection for lenses

I won't get into the debate on this one, just to say it's handy to have a few around if you need them (even if you don't use them all the time) I've used both the Marumi MC and normal ones. This one is the one to go for, the MC stands for "multi coated" and is better able to resist flare. The standard one isn't bad (it's a bit cheaper) but honestly this is the one to go for

Build is good, not as low profile as the DHG range (digital high grade they have smaller frames) but performance is very good with no obvious loss to image sharpness and good resistance to flare. A decent option for reasonable cost lens protection.

I bought this to go on a Fuji X10. It fits well. There is no discernable vignetting, even at 28mm and F2. The Fuji lens hood screws into the filter, and with that fitted there is also no vignetting. I took some test shots with and without the filter; there was no obvious loss of detail. I have seen noticeable loss of detail from a cheap UV filter, and I don't see a comparable loss with the Marumi.

I am unsure whether this filter is multi-coated. I compared it against a Hoya HMC UV(c). The angles at which reflections became visible was similar with both filters, however I think the Hoya reflects less light than the Marumi. But of course, you can't get a 40mm Hoya, and you can get a 40mm Marumi.

All in all, a decent UV filter that fits well on the Fuji X10.

Great filter - does exactly what you'd expect and fits a Fuji x10 filter threat perfectly.
I've not had any ghosting problems so far with it at all, which can be a problem with cheaper filters.

When I bought a Fuji X10, for which there were a lot of "pros"", one of the "cons" was the lens filter size. Apart from a polarising filter, most effects can be achieved with Photoshop these days, so my primary requirement was for lens protection. A simple search found this 40mm UV filter. No step-up/down converters, just screw it in and forget it. And it was only a tenner!

This filter arrived in good time and seems to be giving good service on my camera. It certainly provides suitable protection for my Fuji camera lens and still accepts the metal lens cap.

Arrived promptly. 40mm filters are very hard to find. It fits the Fujifilm X10 without the need for an adapter. It also seems to be very well made.

When I first purchased the Fuji X20, I was persuaded to buy a somewhat elaborate lens hood, adaptor ring, 52 mm Haze filter combination. I did not like the way this placed the 52mm filter well in front for the camera lens, increasing risk of flare. I purchased the Marumi UV Filter and found it a perfect fit, and the lens hood previously purchased screws into it without any problem. The filter looks and feels a quality item.

Even though the image shown if silver I received a black filter. I was then told that a silver filter doesn't actually exist... a google search seems to confirm this and I am left with a black filter for my silver camera! I would have returned if I was able to find the silver elsewhere, but no joy! Apparently the default picture is set by amazon so cannot be changed. Wish I had read the reviews prior to purchasing now!
