About B + W

This UV Filter blocks the invisible UV component of light from the sky, which can cause blur and to which many color films react with a blue cast. These filters should be called UV-Blocking Filters, because there are filters for technical applications that pass UV radiation and block all the other wavelengths.

Nevertheless, the short term "UV Filter" has become established among photographers. UV Filters are ideal for photography in high altitudes (in the mountains), by the sea and in regions with very clean air.

The pictures gain brilliance and disturbing blue casts are avoided. Because the glass is colorless, color rendition is not altered, aside from the elimination of the unwanted blue cast, and no increase in exposure is required.

That makes a UV Filter very suitable as protection of the front element of the taking lens against dust, flying sand, sea water spray and the like, and it can be kept on the lens at all times. It is recommended for analog color and black-and-white as well as digital photography.

XS-Pro Extr a-Slim
Provides extra-slim mounting rings that eliminate problems associated with SLR wide-angle and telephoto imaging. This mount is especially suited for DSLRs with wide angle lenses. This mount will avoid vignetting with most 17mm lenses on a full frame body. Some report success with lenses as wide as 16mm. It has a front thread for additional accessories such as lens caps or hoods. All XS-Pro Digital mounts are made of brass and are matte black to prevent reflections. Only UV, Clear, and Käsemann Circular Polarizers are offered in this mount, with the latest MRC nano coating.

Always Shoot a test to confirm with your equipment.

Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) with Nano Technology
The nano coating is an outer layer of protection that comes standard with all XS-Pro Digital MRC filters. The nanotechnology based characteristic (lotus effect) produces a better beading effect with water making the cleaning of this filter even simpler and faster than ever before. MRC nano has an improved outer (8th) layer over regular MRC.

MRC by B+W is not only an extraordinarily effective multiple layer coating, it is also harder than glass, so that it protects filters from scratches (for instance when cleaning the filters), and it is also water and dirt repellent, thus facilitating filter maintenance.

B+W Slim are in


from Denver, CO  -  Photo Enthusiast

Love B+W filters and this is no exception. The thin mount XS has a full size front thread and a slightly thinner form factor than their F-Pro series of filters. Very good for wide angle lenses.


The only filters I trust my lenses to.


from Covina, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have been using B + W filters on my lenses for a very long time now. The coating resists water spotting very well and doesn't noticably degrade my image quality. I feel safer with UV filters and hoods on every lens that I own and have compared their quality to that of many other filter brands. I would consistently recommend B + W to anyone looking for quality filters.


Nice. Feels Solid.


from Brooklyn  -  Photo Enthusiast

I keep this always on my canon 28mm 1.8. The build quality is great.

jan o  I am looking for a UV filter for my Nikon 50mm 1.4, more for protection than anything..would this be the correct fit?
LUCIA R  I highly recommend buying and using a UV filter especially from B + W because of the quality of their filter products in addition to protecting your lens while eliminating some uv rays from your photos. There is a visible difference without vs.with this filter.
