These filters absorb Ultra Violet (UV) light. Film is more sensitive to Ultra Violet light than our eyes. This often shows up as a haze or a bluish cast, especially when shot from high altitudes and from long distances, particularly over water.
UV filters also help protect your lens from dust, moisture, fingerprints, scratches and damage from cleaning.
Since they absorb no normal light and have no effect on color or contrast, they can be kept on your lens at all times.

Very good filter for a very reasonable price.
This filter was a replacement for an identical one which was damaged in the process of saving the glass on my lens. In my bag, this filter has no other real purpose than to protect a considerably more expensive piece of equipment. It does that job admirably.
Good lens protection with out breaking the bank.
I always use a UV filter. It is much easier to replace a filter that to have to replace a Lens. It's great that a Uv Filter was included with my new Lens.
I have purchased many items from Adorama and am always pleased with the products and very quick shipping
The good picture quality correction for close up portrait pictures makes the picture look professional even before using any software for picture correction
you always need one as a protection lens
Works great and would buy another one.
This filter was bought primarily to protect a lens. It seems to do what it was designed to do. I'm satisfied.
Does exactly what it is intended to do at a very reasonable price.
