The Tiffen 40.5mm UV Protector Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. This filter is especially useful when photographing at high altitudes or around bodies of water. 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.

Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology; a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.

Absorbs some ultraviolet light and reduces bluish cast of daylight.
Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

    I bought this filter as protection for my wife's Nikon J1, but it wouldn't thread properly. The Hoya polarizer, however, threaded fine. I returned this filter and exchanged it for a Hoya.

    It's also mounted in a thick mount.

      I purchased this to use on my Sony E-mount 16-50mm PZ OSS lens for protection from dust and debris. The filter feels rigid and well built. It fits the lens well without any issue.

          This filter is the smallest size filter I've ever used and at 40.5mm this is the only one I could find by any lens filter manufacture. Tiffin has a long standing name in having a good reputation for making decent filters. And it's make in the USA.

                I'm not able to compare this to other UV filters / lens protectors right now, but I did a before and after test in the snow and to my suprise, the blue snow (Before) actually turned white using the filter. For a few dollars, this is a great investment to protect your lens, and it appears that the annoying blue cast to snow (I live in Hellinois) will be removed, which make my images look much better. Kudos Tiffen! (I am a retired pro photographer)

                        I generally use this filter for dirty industrial enivornments in which I need to keep the sensor/lens combo clean. This filter works perfect for these types of applications as you do not lose measurable MTF quality on the image.

                          I use only Tiffen or B&W filter, all my lenses have one and never come off. It's better to do this that the cost of replacing the front element of a expensive lens.

                            We use this on an aerial platform so the camera lense takes a good amount of abuse but with one of these in place - we have no worries!
