Absorbs the ultraviolet rays which often makes outdoor photographs hazy and indistinct. A muliti-purpose fine-weather filter for color as well as black and white films. Also serves as a permanent lens protector.
HMC (Hoya Multi-Coating)
These popular filters are renowned for their ability to minimise reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting. The result is an average light transmission of over 97%, giving sharp contrast and well balanced color. HOYA HMC filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of today's multicoated lenses.

Filter is great for non-vignetting on my wide angle zoom Tokina 11-16 lens. Highly recommended.

I bought this as a used item. For the life of me, I can't tell it from new.
Put 1 of these on my 17-40 f/4L, 70-200 2.8L and 24-70 2.8L. Works really well even on the wide end of the 17-40. Used just for a protectant filter on these lenses and couldnt be happier.
protect my lens & at a fair price
It is a good quality filter and works well in giving UV and lens protection.
Good filter for the money, cleans the image a bit and protects the lens element, it does give more flare/reflection problems when panning with video but that is to be expected with a filter.
This came with a lens I bought and I only use it for lens protection.
You generally get what you pay for. This is a very high quality filter at a very competive price.
Using it to protect my 100-400 mm canon lens.
This protects the lens very well. I don't see why I would want a more expensive one.
Good lens protection
