Product Highlights
  • Absorbs Ultraviolet Light
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • General Protective Filter
  • Slim-Line Mount for Wide Angle Lenses
  • Rugged Black Brass Filter Ring
  • High Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 49mm UV Slim SC 010 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.

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. The slim filters are specifically designed for use with wide angle lenses and are only 0.1" / 3mm thick. They do not have front threads for stacking additional filters.

Note: This filter ring's outside diameter is slightly larger than the actual thread size, and because of this you may be unable to attach the lens manufacturer's bayonet-mounted lens hood to the lens while using this filter. This is dependent on your specific lens and how thick the front rim of the lens is; with thinner, low-profile lenses usually being affected more.

          This is a good quality filter - if you have an x100 or x100s, this filter is slim enough for the fuji case to close with the lens cap on.

          Comments about B+W 49mm UV Slim SC 010 Filter:

          I originally bought this filter to attach to the NEX 18-55mm lens. It is a Fantastic 49mm filter and I really wanted to keep it and use it on my lens. Unfortunately, I had to return the filter, but not because of any flaw on the filter - The reason I had to return it to B&H was due to the fact... and B&H was able to inform me of this issue... was that the B+W UV Slim 010 filter runs a bit wider than the non-slim filters to accommodate wide angle lenses to avoid any lens cut-off. That extra width was just enough to prohibit the 18-55mm lens sun shade to be slid over the filter and attached to the lens. I have since added a standard width filter to the lens and it works great - Does not cut off any lens edge - and the filter will slip over the filter and attach to the lens without a problem.

              Not the cheapest filter, but does the job with B+W quality.

              I'm using this on a Fuji X100 primarily to fit with the genuine leather case and this it does perfectly.

              Great if you're too lazy to use lens caps!

                  i bought this filter initially as protection for my camera lens-but it improves the quality of any shot taken in bright sun.prior to attaching my lens,any shots in bright sun were washed out and flat. while not the ideal situation to shoot,sometimes the shot presents itself say at 1300.this lens allows more versatility for those moments and results in a more interesting shot. granted,there are other ,better, filters for bright sun-but for everyday use without carrying more equipment-this works.

                    None of my lenses is without a protective filter. I prefer the UV because of the enhancement it brings to ordinary light. However, it is important to choose a high quality filter. There is no point in spending thousands of dollar for the lens and ruin it with a cheap filter. B+W filters are high quality pieces that will do justice to your pricey lenses.
