These filters offer both amateur and professional photographers HOYA's famous quality at reasonable prices. They have coatings applied to both surfaces to suppress reflection and increase light transmission.
The Hoya HMC UV Filter is a multi-purpose, fine-weather filter that is designed to optimize the photography experience of digital SLR users. UV filters absorb ultraviolet rays that often make outdoor photographs hazy and indistinct, and can be constantly fitted to a lens to provide improved clarity and colour balance, as well as to provide protection to your lens. Hoya Digital HMC filters are optimized for use with digital SLR cameras, but they are also perfect for traditional 35mm SLR applications, including black and white photography
HOYA HMC filters are renowned for their ability to minimise reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting. The result is an average light transmission of over 97%, giving sharp contrast and well balanced colour. HOYA HMC filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of todays multicoated lenses.

The visual effect given by a UV filter is very subtle but still clearly visible, especially in sunny landscape shots. They certainly never seem to have an adverse effect, and so are ideal to leave on a lens permanently as a means of protection. If you want to really visibly enhance your outdoor shots, go for a polarising filter, which can be fitted on top of this if you want to, although this might lead to some vignetting on wide angle shots due to the combined length of the rings.
Overall, excellent and convenient lens protection at a very reasonable price.
This is the 'basic' end of the Hoya range. There are pages and pages of photographic reviews, and too be honest I would expect the far more expensive ones to perform better, however, as an excellent quality 'lens protector' and UV filter this one is very good.
I have not noticed any light flare or lens aberration, so one would assume this is how well it mounts to the lens (the lens design) it works very well on my Sony Lenses without any issues.
Much thinner than some alternatives, so the lens cap etc still fits.
With the High Quality HOYA brand, it is easily worth just a few pounds more than any other cheaper filter rubbish.
*TIP* be aware there are LOTS of fake ones out there; this one is genuine; sold, and fulfilled, by AMAZON direct so worth the assurance.
I WOULD recommend this filter.
I am fairly certain that mine bought via Amazon, was fulfilled by Amazon but sold by a seller. I have this filter in 58mm, 72mm & 77mm versions and they are fine. This one though I am certain is a dud or a fake. The green reflections even in broad daylight are shocking. Sadly I was in South America at the time and had it delivered to a friend, by the time it had got back to me, it was more than 30 days after my purchase and Amazon wasn't really interested in my objections.
I went back to Amazon to purchase 52mm and another 58mm B+W UV filter.
Buyer beware when buying filters online, check them in different lighting conditions, Hoya UV(C) filters should not have green flares on the images
Now I have bought many a filter made usually by Hoya as I personally find them to be just what I'm looking for in a filter.
I have also bought cheaper filters from other makers for less expensive lenses, the details between the two are minimal but note worthy.
First the Hoya UV filter well if you've bought Hoya before you know of the quality, that rock solid build this is not missing in this UV filter. The bezel holds the filter with no movement between the two of them.
Secondly the threads are fantastic they are so smooth, and it's extremely easy to match the filter up to the lens and screw the filter into place, once tightened up to the lens body the filter in my experience has never come loose.
All the same though when it comes time to remove this filter, I find it easy to over come the initial locking of the two to each other and it's a fast smooth removal of the filter.
Now as I said I have bought cheaper UV lens filters too, and the difference for me is that all important thread action. It can cause frustration trying to remove a filter when you have cold hands or you're in a rush.Read more ›

I am giving 4 stars just because it has a problem common to many (all, I guess) circular polarisers: if you use a wide lens (35mm or less) it darkens the corners of your shoot. Read morePublished 4 days ago by giovanni

I actually forget I have this attached to a portrait lens. That's testament to how good it is. I don't think there is a better lens protector/filter available.Published 8 days ago by Amazon Customer
