These popular filters are renowned for their ability to minimise reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

I needed a UV filter to protect my Sigma 150-500mm lens. I chose Hoya from past experience, they make good quality lens filters. This was reasonably priced and is of good sturdy quality. It does not interfere with the quality of photos at all.
I use this for lens protection and uv protection. Recommend this use for all lenses.
