About Tiffen

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.

UV filter ---------- Standard UV. Most popular protection filter.
UV MC -------------- Multi coated for extra flare protection.
UV Warm ------------ Combines UV with Tiffen's '812' warming filter.
Haze 1 ------------- Absorbs 75% of UV light.
Haze 2 --------------Absorbs 100% of UV light.
Haze 15--------------Absorbs 81% of UV light.
Haze 16--------------Absorbs 86.5% of UV light
Haze 17 ------------ Absorbs almost all UV light.
UV Wide Angle Thin - UV filter for use with wide angle lenses.

Most Liked Positive Review

 

Nothing new to report.

Set it and forget it. The filter is a sturdy UV I use to protect the lens. Thats it. I'm not one of those obsessive compulsive photo tech nerds who analyze the UV coming through into my pictures. My photos still look great, the lens is protected, the filter is easy to clean. End of story. If you want a cheap filter that does the job buy this one. If you want to keep up with the Jones's then buy a B+W.

Keep away from the Tiffen 77mm UV filter

I've bought this for my new EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens. This was the first time I's buying a filter. I also bought other two Tiffen UV filters: a 52mm for EF 50mm f/1.8, and a 58mm for EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and Sigma 70-300 APO DG Macro f/4-5.6. While the other two are quite acceptable, the 77mm is bad. Most probably, I'll not use it at all. When the filter is fully fitted, it touches the front element of the lens. Other than that, I often shoot indoors. Any light sources, or light reflections...

I've bought this for my new EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens. This was the first time I's buying a filter.

While the other two are quite acceptable, the 77mm is bad. Most probably, I'll not use it at all. When the filter is fully fitted, it touches the front element of the lens. Other than that, I often shoot indoors. Any light sources, or light reflections in the exposure are creating weird halos... The moon for example is surrounded with a big and bright halo. Unscrewing it a little until the filter is not touching the lens didn't help preventing the halos. I'm not using a protective filter now for the 24-105 at all. I'll consider buying a Hoya or B&W later.

Does what it is designed to do

By

from Cleveland, OH  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is an inexpensive lens-protection filter. When in dusty and dirty areas, as my photography often takes me, a UV filter is a must. This inexpensive option is designed well, and feels like some filters many times the price.

Good Filter for the $$$

By

I bought this filter for my new EF 24-105mm L Canon lens primarily to protect the lens. It fits well and the Canon cap still mounts to it. What more can you ask for.

Does what it needs to

By

This is a tight filter with clean glass that protects my lens from scratches. Not B-W glass, but neither is the price.

I always use a filter on all my lenses. Tiffen is a name brand. You can always count on them.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Wayne M  freebie
Shopper  does this filter fit a Sigma 10-20 lens?
BRIAN L  All that matters is the if the front diamater of the Sigma lens is 77mm. If it is, then this filter will fit. The filter is great and performs well, but I did not like it because 1. you can't attach another filter on top of this one (as this one is meant to be left on your lens at all times - for protection), and 2. You can't even put the lens cap back on to this filter. If neither of these two things are an issue for you .. then this will be a great filter for you - I have a Tiffen 72mm UV filter on another sigma lens and it works great (without any of the 2 issues I mentioned).
Shopper  Can I use this filter (fit) on lens Tokina 12-24mm F/4 ATX PRO DX II for Nikon ? Alex
JAMES L  Yes
