Product Highlights
  • Helps to Absorb Ultraviolet Light
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • General Protective Filter
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 86mm Coarse Thread 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.

        Comments about Tiffen 86mm Coarse Thread UV Protector Filter:

        I got this filter to protect a new super-telephoto lens just before travelling to Borneo. Given the jungle conditions and trekking style of our trip I wanted to make sure I got some extra protection for my new lens. It worked great and I was able to get some awesome photos. No problems with focus, etc. For the price it was a no-brainer and I'm very pleased with it.

            I'm using this filter with a Sigma lens 150-500mm. The price is great for the size of the filter.

              This filter fits perfect and does the job and keeps the blues to a minimum when Im just inside the shade but shooting into bright sun. Great for non sky pics, and protects the big 86mm glass on my Sigma.

                I always use a filter to protect my investment in a lens - this one was my choice for my latest lens purchase. And cost was a major factor in my choice.

                Comments about Tiffen 86mm Coarse Thread UV Protector Filter:

                I bought this as a protective filter for my Sigma 150-500mm. From what I have been reading I haven't decided to actually use it on the lens yet or not (for optical reasons), but I would like to carry it with me. I suppose filters this size don't come with those cute plastic cases, so here it sits on my desk after about a week because I can't find an efficient container to carry it in my kit with. The price was good.

                          The price was reasonable.

                              I did not have a lot to spend but needed a UV filter and lens protector of good quality; this Tiffen did the trick and I am well pleased.
