The Heliopan 72mm UV Haze SH-PMC 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 SH-PMC multi-coating provides a total of 16 coatings, 8 per side, for significant reflection reduction (below 0.2%) as well as dust and moisture repellence for easier cleaning.

This filter features a brass mounting ring that is painted matte black to help reduce reflections. High quality Schott glass provides optical clarity and greater contrast to help render scenes with greater fidelity and resolution.

        Excellent protection for superb lens like a Canon EF 50mm 1.2L. Great construction and optical quality so it looks like you are not using a filter at all. Highly Recommended.

          Comments about Heliopan 72mm UV Haze SH-PMC Filter:

          I never understood why folks will spend thousands on top glass, like Canon L lenses, and then put a [$] filter in front of it. If you are going to spend the money on lenses, be smart enough to spend a little extra to get the best filters you can and these filters have always done a great job for me to get the most out of my lenses. Canon primes from 24 to 85mm all produce much better images with a quality filter in front of them!

            Expensive? yes.

            Maybe you could go with a cheaper version, but I bought this with my Canon 50mm L 1.2, and if I'm going to spend $1500 on a lens, I want to protect my image quality and investment.

            Heliopan filters are my favorite filters and I basically buy one when I by a new lens. In terms of IQ they produce the best results with minimal vignietting or distortion.

            highly recommended.

            The only downside is the price but it is well worth it. It is a one time expense that you have to make if you want your L lens to be safe and have pictures that are expected from an L lens!

              Great product. But i did read in other reviews that you shouldn't use this if you go "extreme" wide angle. but what does that mean? Well, i found out the hard way. I use a nikon 18-200mm lens for most of my work. If i zoom out to 18-30mm, i can see the edges in the corners, or vinyetting (spellcheck). Other than that, this is a great piece of glass.

                slim profile filter fits perfectly on my lens (canon) Only complaint is that my lens cap does not fit as securely as with other filters due to the slim design. This is not really a problem, I just have to make sure to put the cap on tightly.
