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.
Tiffen Ultra Violet filters are available in a variety of absorbtion levels and sizes.

Great Filter, Just Forget the Lens Cap
Being accustomed to seeing the barrel effects at times since Iâ€™m pushing the lens when I should have changed it (if I could) due to adding extra filter(s), so I wanted a "very thin" filter. This filter does a great job at that and the UV butâ€¦ Use this filter and you canâ€™t put the lens cap on it. As such, I purchased a second UV filter that can accept the lens cap. When I have a barrel effect problem and I need to illuminate as well as the UV, I use this filter.

Great filter, can't use standard lens ca
It does what it should, protects the lens and filters light - but I can't use my standard Canon or Tamron lens caps with it. Other than that, it's solidly constructed and does what it's supposed to do.

I'm sure it's a dandy filter as far as the glass goes, but don't buy it if you plan to use a Cokin or Singh-Ray type of filter mount as the outward facing bezel has no threading.
As far as UV filters go, this is the UV filterest. It works so well in honor of this lens I have renamed my cat Tiffen 67. I can't remember what my life was like before I bought this transparent piece of heaven.
It will not hold the lens cap. Spend your money on a filter that provides total protection.
Filter fit fine, however, it's sooooo thin the lens cover did not fit well. Lost two lens covers. Finally decided to purchase new filter so i'd stop loosing lens covers :-(
You can confidense in Tifften, always.
Does the job of keeping dust and sand away from expensive lens. Also keeps UV rays out
I like the simple design. Protects the lens. It is nice to see no distortion from filter at wide angle. Would recommend 100%
I bought this to protect my 18-105 lens and that is what it does. It's like it isn't even there. What more can I say? A cheap way to protect your lens.
Seems odd that the Tiffen 65mm UV filter doesn't take and hold a lens cap. So it's not used to protect the front lens.
Pentax lens caps do not 'catch' with this filter and fall off easily.
