Top quality product, essential to block UV, improve colorimetry and protect your valuable lens.

Its Hoya, so its certain to be of excellent quality and it comes in a very smart storage case. I've used Hoya filters for many years, they are the best.
Great thing about a UV filter is that if there is no UV it will do nothing - if there is UV it will reduce the blueness of the image. UV is always higher near the sea and at high altitudes, so this filter is essential for taking photographs on the beach, near lakes or in the mountains. It will reduce the blueness and make the colorimetry more natural.
And, equally important, it provides cheap, permanent protection for your valuable lens. Just leave it screwed on at all times and your expensive lens will be protected from the damaging acid in fingerprints as well as scratches and dirt.
For these reasons I have always kept a UV filter on every lens on all my cameras.
