Bought this to protect my 55-200 VR kit lens for a D40. Doesn't degrade photo quality at all, and gives some extra protection to the lens. Will probably get another for my 50mm lens.

Bought this to protect my 35mm/1.8f lens. Thus far, it's worked without noticeably degrading the image quality.
Like I've already said. It's a Hoya! Nothing else I can say except I have never had a moments trouble from anything with their name on it!
Use this for UV protection and for lens protection
Bought this Hoya to protect the 18-55mm lens on my new Nikon D5100. Works great, Hoyas are the best, they are on all my Nikons (D50, D90, D5100). Highly recommended. Adorama shipped super fast, well packed.
It is as if YOU think the filter is only usefull for video / filming and not for photography!
I wanted to get one really good 52mm filter because I have a few lenses this size and wow, this is a great filter. It is so clear with virtually no goasting or flares and it's very well made. I'm very happy with it.
I have used this filter for night performances with stage lighting, during the night with low artificial light around pool scenes, and during the daytime for outdoor portraits type shots and love the results.
I basically wanted a filter to protect my fast 50. Poked around and found it'd be best to spend $30 and get one that's well-coated. Indoors, this uv filter appears to improve white balance in low light situations, removing some of the orange tint in faces.
I use my 18-55 a lot and this Hoya filter is solidly built, with reassuring super clear optics which does not flare up when there are bright light sources in the frame. Compared taking shots with/without the filter and there are no obvious differences in flare. Which means this is an excellent piece of glass![...]
put this on every lens. Super HMC is cool but i would just get HMC next time i need one
