B+W 82mm UV Slim SC 010 Filter

B&H # BWUVS82 Mfr # 65-023233
You Pay: $54.95
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 82mm 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.

      B+W make high quality filters--no disappointment here. With some lenses, you simply don't really have the choice to use a filter that has a regular thickness without adding a noticable vignette (such as the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM II that I use this filter with).

      The problem is that in using a slim filter, you lose the threading that is normally used to attach the lens cap. To overcome this issue, B+W supplies a floppy/rubbery snap-on cover with the filter. The problem is that it does not hold very solidly and cannot be installed while installing/uninstalling the lens hood. Moreover, when the hood is in place, the supplied cover is hard to install or remove, which adds to the frustration.

      All in all, one wonders if the added pain is worth saving the small vignetting that would be caused by using a regular filter...

      Hmmm, lens cap problems

      Not able to use lens cap provided by lens manufacturer. Filter does come with own cap, not easy to manipulate especially with lens hood mounted.

        Comments about B+W 82mm UV Slim SC 010 Filter:

        Usually buy B + W filters because they are well made, provide protection for my lens, and use the slim model for my wide lens. There's nothing worse than stopping down your lens and having the filter visible through the lens, these slim filters will eliminate that problem. Using it on the Canon 16-35 mm helps weather seal the lens.

          Comments about B+W 82mm UV Slim SC 010 Filter:

          I used this on my Canon 24-70mmII lens to protect the lens itself. A bit pricey but when the lens costs over $2,000, it's worth the investment. The only negative comment I have about the filter is that due to the slimness of the filter, it comes with a different size lens cap so you will not be able to use the original cap that came with your lens.

                  Simply put, B+W makes good filters. This slim UV goes perfectly on my Canon USM 16-35mm lens. I am a working photojournalist and have owned two others that have put up with a fair amount of abuse.

                          This filter is amazing, I can't tell any difference with and w/out it. It is ultra slim so there is no vignetting caused by the filter. There is no tread for adding other filters on top or the lens cap. The filter comes with a soft plastic cap that attaches on the outside. It must be removed when putting on the lens hood or removing it, but it's not too much of an inconvenience.

                                I bought this for my Sigma (Canon) 15-30mm EX lens. My daytime shots have improved considerably. The exposure doesn't need hardly any post processing anymore!!

                                  While I dislike the fact that an alternative to a standard lens cap is needed, the filter does its job (and at a fairly cheap price). There has been a significant reduction in vignetting on my 16-35.

                                    I needed low profile UV to protect my video lens but not add any length that would interfear with my matte box. A little price, but very low profile, and works great.

                                    I use this on the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L. It is a very nice filter. A little pricy.. I wish it was half the price but it serves the purpose of protecting expensive glass from possible scratch. It does come with a plastic cap instead of a regular lens cap. I guess it serves the purpose. You will not be able to use factory lens cap with this slim filter.

                                      B+W make high quality filters--no disappointment here. With some lenses, you simply don't really have the choice to use a filter that has a regular thickness without adding a noticable vignette (such as the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM II that I use this filter with).

                                      The problem is that in using a slim filter, you lose the threading that is normally used to attach the lens cap. To overcome this issue, B+W supplies a floppy/rubbery snap-on cover with the filter. The problem is that it does not hold very solidly and cannot be installed while installing/uninstalling the lens hood. Moreover, when the hood is in place, the supplied cover is hard to install or remove, which adds to the frustration.

                                      All in all, one wonders if the added pain is worth saving the small vignetting that would be caused by using a regular filter...
