Hoya 58mm Ultraviolet UV(0) Super Multi-Coated (S-HMC) Glass Haze Filter

B&H # HOUVSMC58 Mfr # X58UV
No Longer Available

The Hoya 58mm Ultraviolet UV(0) Super Multi-Coated (S-HMC) Glass Haze Filter is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

Hoya's high transmission Super-Multi-Coating minimizes reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

This outstanding filter offers revolutionary performance in light transmission and color balance. 12 layers of Super Multicoating are applied to the surfaces of the Skylight 1B and UV(0) models, which produces an average transmission of 99.7%.

Coupled with maximum surface precision, this allows increased resistance to flare and stunning images can be recorded at wide apertures without compromising the performance of your lenses.

If desired it can be left on the lens at all times for protection
Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details
Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees

      I am using this product on a Sigma 17-50 f/2.8. Thia was a small investment to help protect my lens. It fit perfectly without any adverse effect on picture quality. I really like the HOYA filters and this 1 was another great example. It was a great price and B & H Photo definitely gets 2 thumbs up for their service. The item was shipped immediately and arrived in a very timely manner. I will definitely be doing business with them again.

          I don't usually bother with filters because I tend think there's no point in investing in good glass just to cover it with more glass. However, I had a shoot where it made sense to add some protection to a lens and this filter really worked well with pretty much no discernible effects on utility or image quality.

                I recently purchased Canon EOS 6d and 50 mm f1.4. At the same time, I also tried to find out an UV filter for the lens. I searched at internet and found that 58mm Ultraviolet UV(0) Super Multi-Coated (S-HMC) Glass Haze Filter by Hoya is a good choice based on the quality and price. Actually I am a longtime Hoya filter user, I trustit. I also used same type of Hoya UV filter for my Canon EF 70-200 L f4.

                  This filter does what it was designed to do - not be noticed. I don't see any difference between using it and not using it, which is what I wanted. I'm putting it on a nice lens, and needed lens protection that would not impact the images in a negative way.

                    IF you buy an expensive lens, add some protection. This will prevent scratches and breaking. And it doesn't affect the overall image

                      Seems to do a pretty good job on cutting down on glare and also clearing up those hazy day pics. Used this for a car show and it worked amazingly well. Nice crisp photos. Just wish I had picked one up for my 50mm lens also at the same time.

                            Helps protect your lens from possible damage or elements, but at a chance of ruining some of the quality of your pictures. Sometimes adds some glare to the pictures. 12 coat lens does improve pictures under some conditions. Overall very happy with the price and the performance.

                            This filter works very well. It doesn't seem to affect my photos in any way, which is good since I am only using it to protect the front element of my lens. What more do you really need?

                            I will say that it can be a little difficult to clean, which is why I gave it 4 stars. My B&W filter has a different sort of coating, which seems easier to clean than the Hoya one.

                                I bought this lens filter to protect my 50mm f/1.4 lens. I had researched filters and the Hoya turned up on top most all the time. When I got it in and installed it on the lens it was great and so clear, like having nothing at all. I had no problems with glare in the pictures taken with it on either. Well constructed and looks like part of the lens.

                                    Great glass filter. Good build quality and fits perfect. Keeps my glass well protected and isn't too much of a dent in the wallet.

                                    I haven't really seen a difference in my photos with or without the filter. I can only suggest it for lens protection in my opinion. The lens is good quality and feels very sturdy, installed with no problem

                                      Gives you sharp/clear images...I bought a Canon T3i with the 18-55mm lens. I knew that my pictures would only be so good with the kit lens but I was very disappointed with my image quality from a 18 mega pixel camera. One day I took off the Tiffen UV filter and shot with no UV filter and I saw a real difference. So after a lot of research I decided on this filter because of the 12 layers of coating and I have so say the photos are even better then the lens with no filter. I very happy I spent the extra money on this filter.

                                        Clear sharp photos at last..I bought a Canon T3i and I was talked into a Tiffen UV filter. I was very unhappy with the image quality of a 18 megapixel camera. I knew I have only a kit lens but I still expected better quality, until I took off the filter. I bought this filter after a lot of research on the internet but I still was unsure if a filter would improve my image quality, I'm happy to say it improved my image quality and I'm very happy I spent the extra money for a better filter.

                                        This is a good quality filter. Its very clear and has few reflections. I accidentally managed to put its toughness to the test, by running my camera lens first into a doorknob. It left a small ding...but it didn't shatter like a cheap filter probably would have.
