The B+W 46mm UV Haze MRC 010M Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

The UV 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.

      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.

      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.

                  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.

                                    got this to protect my pan 20mm. I hate to admit that I dropped my camera on the asphalt. The filter has a scratch at the edge on the glass, but out of the way of the optic path. Filter is very solid, didn't break. I'd hate to think how badly the lens would have been damaged.

                                    I haven't noticed any detriments to photo quality.
                                    It will flare a bit if you point it straight at a street light at night.

                                        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.

                                          I took the plunge and (based on forums' comments) bought 3 of these: 37, 46 and 58mm for each of my M4/3 lenses. The moment I took them out of the box I realized it was a money well spent. Very solid feeling brass ring. Construction as thin as possible, yet as wide and solid as needed for operating. Has thread on the outside and the lens-cap snaps on it without problems. I intend to keep it on the lens at all times as a protector, so I did some shooting test: in low light at home, took same distance ant setting pictures to compare the exposure settings in automatic regime. No change with or without the filter - thus the filter doesn't affect the brightness of the lens at all or the effect is negligible. Very happy, highly recommend.

                                              Feels very solid and dense for its size. Also adds a bit of balance to the lens. Well worth the price and it helps bring out a bit more blue in the sky.
