Ultra violet filters are probably one of the least glamorous and most mundane photographic accessories around, yet they are an essential part of of your system, and practically all photographers fit them to the front of their lenses and leave them there.

So who makes them?, what are they?, what do they do? and why would you want one? I will try and answer these questions below.

Firstly who makes them?.......

There are several companies that make filters for camera lenses, but Hoya, "the subject of this review", are one of the biggest and well known brands of filter around.

Hoya was founded in Japan in 1941 and have their headquarters in Shinjuku, Tokyo, they manufacture optical products ranging from laser equipment and photographic equipment to contact lenses, and they are one of the world's leading manufacturers of photographic filters.

In 2007 they announced that they were to merge with the well known Japanese camera manufacturer Pentax, in 2008 they announced that they would keep the Pentax name for their camera and lens division.

What are they?.......

Quite simply, they are a flat and optically correct glass filter in a metal mount, that can be screwed to the front of your lens, they have a large veriety of uses and come in many colours for use in special effects and colour corrections, including the UV correction filters discussed here.

What do they do?......

There is not really much to say about this filter - it does exactly what it says on the tin. Outdoor pictures can be more precise because the hazing caused by scattered UV light is filtered out. Note that most digital SLR cameras already filter out UV light prior to it reaching the sensor. The filter is coated only once on each side so expect some flaring or aberration.
This filter is cheap and specific enough to be left on permanently as a protector for your valuable front lens, if you feel that's necessary. It's double-threaded, so you can screw another filter or lens accessory onto the front of it once it is mounted. The filter has a reasonably low profile and will not interfere with most lens hoods, but vignetting may occur on very wide angle lenses, especially when using a full frame camera.

This Hoya fits my Canon perfectly & does an excellent job. Landscape photographs are noticably sharper. Order was processed by Cameraking UK and product arrived well inside the delivery window.

Purchased this as a replacement for a 58mm Marumi lens protector (on my Canon 450d) which got damaged. Performance of this filter is not reviewed here (I haven't used it yet) but this UV filter does not have a thread on the "non camera lens side" to fit additional filters on top of the UV filter - if you wanted to do this!

I bought this as an add-on to protect my new Canon lens, and it is 'just the job'.Being a UV filter, you really don't know you have it on, so it's just the thing to keep the forward glass fully protected. Definitely worth it for the price.

Nothing fancy about this product, but it does exactly what it's supposed to do and protects the lens. Hoya makes high quality stuff compared to the lower end filters. Very happy.

I have recently purchased and used a Hoya 58mm UV filter. I'm pleased to say it is a vast improvement on those supplied to me by "Jollops" and other suppliers, as it has anti-reflection coatings on both the front and rear surfaces. These coatings enhance light transmission and at the same time greatly reduce internal reflections, making image 'ghosts' far less likely in high-contrast situations.
It is important to use clean micro-fibre cloths when cleaning coated lenses and filters to remove any greasy smears, but the use of a puffer and camel-hair brush is advised beforehand to remove any gritty particles.

Filter does not appear to affect image or colour quality, have not had an opportunity to check its UV effect but I assume it would be effective, certainly worth buying to protect the lens.
