Product Highlights
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • Provides Greater Color Accuracy
  • MRC Multi-Resistant Coating
  • General Protective Filter
  • Rugged Black Brass Filter Ring
  • High Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 58mm Skylight KR-1.5 (1A) MRC Filter is a general use filter with a slight pink tint to help improve overall color accuracy and clarity. The light pink coloration helps to reduce the overall bluish cast of daylight and is especially effective when photographing landscapes and in shade.

The Sky 1A filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

The Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) is both an anti-reflection coating as well as a protective surface. It helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, it offers greater protection to the filter substrate and stays cleaner for longer than uncoated filters.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

        Great product, clean, no distortion, easy to clean. i own a few Hoya HD2 and i find the B+W to be easier to clean. the skylight effect add a bit of warm to pictures and doesn't have any downside

                  The 58mm Skylight 1A (KR-1.5) Filter has a perfectly tight fit. A must have for everyone who wants to protect his camera and snap great shots in or outdoors. It is not just a protection for your lens against getting scratched by dust and sand particles in the air, but also filters UV rays.
