Product Highlights

The B+W 52mm UV Haze Slim MRC 010M 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.

The Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) is both an anti-reflection coating as well as a protective surface. It helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, it offers greater protection to the filter substrate and stays cleaner for longer than uncoated filters.

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.

        I use B+W filters almost exclusively because they are such good quality. Optical glass and easy to clean with no ghosting. I use this one on a Voigtlander Color Skopar 20mm f/3.5 SL-II Aspherical Manual Focus Lens for Nikon.

            Comments about B+W 52mm UV Haze Slim MRC 010M Filter:

            I would say that B+W filters are among the top from what you can get in this field. That means that you should go with those filters pretty much only in those cases when you either need the best photo quality possible or when you are a photo freak (such as me) that wants to have every photo pretty much perfect.

            In other words, this B+W filter is a very nice piece of equipment and probably one of the best ones in its field but it is also very expensive. You are going to get pretty much the same results if you go with any other filter manufacturer - there will of course be an increase in vignetting (which you hardly get with this particular lens) and the photo quality might go down a little bit. But you save a lot of money and, as mentioned before, if a superb technical quality is not your main goal, then you don't really need this filter. Don't get me wrong, it's a great filter and I like it a lot, but the difference in performance between this one and much cheaper filters from other manufacturers simply does not equal the difference in the price.

            However there is one, probably already mentioned, disadvantage and that is the lens cap. Since this is a slim filter you cannot use the original lens caps from the lens manufacturer but instead you have to use those provided by B+W. There are not bad, in fact I find them better in some ways, but they tend to come off the lens quite often either while being carried in a bag or when being pulled out.
