The Heliopan 77mm UV 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 Heliopan filter is constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. It features a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

          Comments about Heliopan 77mm UV SH-PMC Filter:

          This Heliopan UV Filter is fantastic. It has multiple coatings...haven't had it long enough to see if it prevented smudges or dust or anything else. I know I have to be careful not to clean off the coatings when I have to clean it.I was using a cheaper UV filter, but subjects look sharper now than before. Go Heliopan! It is pricey but you get what you pay for. It is cheaper than replacing or repairing my lens if a rock cracks the glass or if some dust scratches my lens. The package says it is a slim filter. It doesn't look like it though. No big deal because it works great.The ring is really heavy duty! I can already tell that the ring will not fail.

            The filter is optically excellent, and its mounting is pretty good. That said, its price is outrageous for a single piece of flat glass whose main function is to protect the lens.
            One almost feels like buying a cheap filter to protect this expensive filter that protects the lens...

              I can already tell that this filter is worth the extra money. It does its job and does not get in the way. There is no degredation of image. With lesser filters you can see some on fragile shots.

                    I was hesitant to spend so much for a UV filter, but I wanted something to complement my first Canon L-series lens (17-40). As soon as I opened the package and put it on my lens, I knew I had made the right decision. The build quality is typical Heliopan (I have a Heliopan ND filter), but the clarity of the glass was just stunning.

                          I'm using it on 52mm lens thread with the 52-77mm step up ring,the clarity is very obvious and it works perfectly,this is a very well made item.
                          You get more than what you paid for.
                          Very highly recommended,love it! .

                            I recently purchased a Canon 24-70L 2.8 lens and spent quite a bit of time online researching 77mm UV filter reviews. I wanted a high-end UV filter to use with the lens and everything I read pointed towards the German manufactures. I have quite a few filters I use for B&W photos and have has no problems with screwing them on and off of the Heliopan where I've had problems unscrewing other brands. Of course the most important aspect is the glass. The lens and filter are a perfect match.

                              I have this on the front of my Nikon 16-35mm lens all the time.
                              It helps clear up the haze but doesnt affect the colour. its slim and if I do need to take it off the brass thread doesnt stick.

                                After buying cheaper filters that would never clean up properly, I finally sprung for the more expensive Heliopans. They are superb, with a fantastically smooth coating that cleans up beautifully.
