I was able to get lens flare once regardless of the multi-coatings but only the one time. Overall I think this is a great alternative to the more expensive multi-coated UV filters for people that don't need the best there is.

I use this to protect the front element on my Panasonic Leica Summilux 42.5mm/f1.2 lens. It is well made and does not appear to interfere with the images. It is a very nice product.
I use this as protection for my Nikor Lens...very inexpensive insurance against scratches on an expensive lens with no sacrifice of perfection!
I put it on and can't tell that it is on. Best thing you can say about a uv filter
I have a automotive business, and ended up deciding to get a Canon 60D and to purchase this Hoya SMC UV(0) Filter with it...along with a number of other items... Upon opening the package, I realized the lens filter could take a little wipping down-just due to the a few faint lines (looked liked scratches-but they weren't)...nothing serious though... While trying to clean them, I realized they were a PAIN to clean...had to resort to using a dishwashing liquid to clean it to perfection... Also I was impressed witht the metal construction, and the fact that the lens cap fits onto the end on the filter...
Use filter as general lens protection Good filter. Doesn't take away anything from picture quality
Good product Works well
Love the metal construction and just by looking at this product it is built tough... Works perfect and plus I have the ease of lens protection as well.
Never regret to have it
Good product fair price
Protects the lens and filters out UV rays. Very good quality and a great price.
