This review is from: Hoya 77mm UV(C) Digital HMC Screw-in Filter (Accessory)
I received this item well packed and very fast delivery. Can't ask for much more and the product is what it is the best filter for lens protection. The only downside to using UV filters for lens protection is that if you do smash the filter depending on the angle and nature of the impact the UV filter can shatter and cause scratching to the lens. The glass used is not shatter proof so beware! It was quite time consuming and difficult to get all the small fragments of glass that get trapped in the mechanism removed. I still think this is a risk worth taking as the filter ring acted as a sacrificial corner protection to my lens. So I am replacing my recently smashed filter and the scratches don't seem to be affecting the quality of my images just yet but would be nice not have them....
