The B+W 46mm UV Haze MRC 010M Filter is a general use, clear filter designed to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. Aside from the reduction of unwanted blue casts, no additional coloration or contrast is created, and adjustments to exposure are not required while using this filter. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections while providing over 99.8% light transmission, each glass surface includes multiple layers of anti-reflection coating. This Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) also offers greater protection to the filter substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters.

B+W filters are constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter features an F-Pro brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

This UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Such filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your front lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

    I have several UV, polarizing and ND filters made by Tiffen, Hoya and Cokin but this is my first B+W filter. There is an obvious quality difference just in holding this filter. Though it's only a 46mm it feels more substantial than my 52 and 55mm filters. I always keep it on my Panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens for protection and I've noticed no adverse effects on my photos. It did seem to reduce haze on a few landscape photos I used as a test but it's mainly for lens protection. The glass on this filter does not seem to attract dust as much as the others I've used either. Though it is pricey, I may be buying more B+W filters now.

    B+W quality slipping?

    I am a big fan of B+W products. I seem to be getting worse lens flair with this filter than other B+W filters I own. I will admit I pushed it hard in a test run, in sunny snowy mountain conditions. But I did use a lens hood and a high quality lens. I was a bit disappointed in how many shots were lost to significant lens flair. Construction is good and a cheaper brand would probably have been much worse. Still worth it to buy B+W, but I was expecting better.

        Comments about B+W 46mm UV Haze MRC 010M Filter:

        Obviously you can obtain a UV filter for cheaper, but most of us don't want to cover up the glass we paid good money for (i.e. the lens) with something that will impair its ability to produce great images.

        Aside from the great feel of its construction (brass ring, etc.), this filter does its job well, and after taking many photos having it on, my images look just as good or better than before (when haze reduction is an issue). Worth the extra money. I keep this one on my Panasonic 2.5 14mm all the time.

          Comments about B+W 46mm UV Haze MRC 010M Filter:

          I use these filters on most of my lenses (a few lenses are not set up for filters). The optical quality is state of the art and the protection they provide is priceless.

          They have saved several of my lenses from ruin, like the time an elderly woman smoking, turned around and ran her cigarette into my Leica 24mm (the filter needed replaced from the burn).

          The brass threads have never locked (corroded) onto any lens either. (aluminum and base metal filters have done this)

          The MRC coating is far better at controlling flair than single coated filters when used in backlit and side lit situations.

                                    I got this to protect my Olympus lens. One of my pet peeves with uv filters is for the lens cap to work with it and this one does just that. The construction is top notch as with all B+W protects.

                                        Great quality for the price. You might want to consider alternative brands when you planning to purchase a 77mm filter because of B&W's price tag. For a 46mm, however, I don't see a reason not to get the best quality in the industry.

                                            I bought this filter to protect my Lumix/Leica 25mm f1.4 lens. This is a very good lens so I bought, what is reputed to be, a very good filter. I am not sure it is that much better than most other mulit-coated filters but it was fairly inexpensive for B&W so I bought it. It stays on for protection most of the time but I remove it from time to time when practical. I often shoot in demanding environmental conditions and it offers cheap insurance against lens damage.

                                            I own many lenses, most with filters in place for protection. I have rarely had flare or other problems with a filter (I don't buy the really cheap ones) in place that didn't also happen when it was removed.

                                              High quality filter. The filter glass is amazingly clear, like it isn't even there.
