Questions? Ask our experts:

The B+W 72mm 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.

        It added protection to lens. But this filter created ghost image around bright subject. MRC will be a much better choice.

          Comments about B+W 72mm UV Slim SC 010 Filter:

          I keep a UV filter on all of my lenses mainly as protection for the lens. Filters are cheap compared to lenses, and while you may take extreme care of your lenses scratches happen. I am also pleased with the images captured while using this filter, so the dual purpose is added value.

            It pays to spend a few extra dollars for a good filter.
            I was torn between 5 stars or 4 on only one problem; "lens cap". But I was so happy with my pictures being so much sharper with this filter then they were with the cheap one I was using that the "lens cap" issue is very miner. I'm very happy I bought this filter.

              I like the slim design; you almost think the lens has no filter on it until you see the distinctive glass all the way across the front of the lens.
