I've always - for the last 50 years - used a UV filter to protect my lenses. It's cheaper than replacing the lens. This filter performs optically as well as more expensive examples and mechanically as well as the best. The filters arrived promptly and the one I ordered in error, thinking both Panasonic lenses were the same diameter, was replaced immediately, no question, no quibble, no charge. Excellent.
Easy to screw onto the lens 52mm - Use for standard 14-42mm that came with the Lumix G3 and was sound happy that immediately ordered a second for the 45-150mm lens that I had also - Does the job well and prevents future worry for lens damage - Picture quality is uninhibited by the lens - Cannot even tell it is there - Would high recommend
First time I have had one of these filters.I lost my lens cap and decided this was a more cost effective solution.I have just returned from a holiday in Scotland and the camera had a good workout.This filter did all that was asked of it.
I accidentely dropped my Panasonic G3 camera, the Filter smashed into small pieces, the camera lens was not damaged. I immediately ordered a new filter, Maxsima is perfect. Always use a Filter to protect your lens,
