                  Comments about Canon FS-72U 72mm Filter Set:

                  Quality filters can only be judged by time. How long they last before fading, or if they scratch, etc.I chose these because they have precise optical glass and are laminated to protect the coating. I expect them to last a long time. Although modern DSLRs don't need a UV filter, it is still the best protection for an expensive lens, and that counts for a lot.My only complaint is that box the store in is less than useful and a bit cumbersome. Individual plastic containers would have been best.

                    Comments about Canon FS-72U 72mm Filter Set:

                    Good value for Canon quality. Just returned from Hawaii where there were many opportunities to take advantage of the polarizing filter and neutral density filter with my Canon 60D. The polarizing filter did a great job of reducing glare and enhancing color, and the neutral density was great for photographing waterfalls. The leather case and fastener need improvement, but the filters are excellent.

                          I am a beginner who is learning to use my first DSLR and wanted some basic filters to experiment with. These seem very nice for the price and I was not worried about the quality of an off brand.

                            The filters work great. The box that came with the kit is hard to snap close. The dividers inside the box are made of paper board. I wish the box is made with more padding. The reason for the 4 star rating is because of the quality of the box.

                                The Circular Polarizer filter is great outside but is also good to take out extreme glare and cut down on the reflection when you don't want blown out highlights. I keep the Neutral Density on my lens to protect it. I haven't used the UV filter as yet. It is a nice little case that the three filters come in to protect them from getting scratched.

                                  Three good quality filters in a well designed package. You can spend twice as much on 1 polarizing filter and end up with the same results. Nice to have a UV and gradient filter in the same package for a very reasonable price.

                                    Useful set of all the necessary filters for normal use. In wedding photography, conditions change, and good filters are imperative. These have the Canon optics quality to complement our Canon lenses.

                                          These filters work great. I keep the uv filter on all of the time for lens protection. The polarizer also works great. The only downfall is the case is a bit awkward but not an issue.

                                                      I use this filter set in my EOS 40D. First of all, you should not take the lens cap out without having a UV filter attached. More than its visual improvement by absorbing ultraviolet rays, it protects your lenses from dust, scratches and more serious damage. The circular polarizer is a nice resource to have. It is useful when dealing with reflective surfaces for example. I did not use the ND8 filter yet. It reduces the light entering lens and is useful when shooting at extremely bright conditions. Additionally, it comes with a nice leather box to store the filters.
