The UV filter, also known as a haze filter, is not only an excellent universal filter for visually improving photographs with all film types, but it can always stay on the lens for protection from dust, fingerprints, moisture, etc. and for use under extreme conditions It absorbs the short wave portion of the spectrum so under hazy conditions a clearer reproduction of the scene is possible. The loss of sharpness caused by UV rays and the bluish tones common in infinity scenes are eliminated with the colorless UV filter. An exposure correction is not required.

I spend a lot of money on quality lenses. I want the same high quality in front of these lenses.
I use this as a way of not having to replace front elements on my lenses. This was bought as a replacement for the same filter which managed to get punctured while in my camera bag. The multi coating reduced glare to near nothing. I did not get "cleaning marks" on the filter. My broken filter had incredibly thick glass in it.
If you plan on leaving your UV filter on the lens then get this non-aluminum mount (Heliopan standard) so it does not bind to your aluminum filter threads on your lens. The many-layered MC really does cut down on reflections and makes for relatively easy cleaning. Spend a little more for good glass in front of your expensive lens.
