Haze(UV) filters are wise initial investments. They help protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. If desired they 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. Haze-1 filters absorb approximately 71 percent of UV.

        Bought this to protect my lens "just in case" and so far so good. No ghosting, smudges, or other foreign matter has attached itself to the filter.

                        Comments about Leica E46 UVa Glass Filter:

                        I bought it mainly as a protection for my Summilux 50 1.4 ASPH. The filter is quite thick and when mounted it even acts as thin shade for teh lens, so much that when the hood is totally extracted it doesn't even seem to be that much longer than the lens itself.
                        In terms of glass, it seems to be ok and the price is also reasonable. Overall, recommended.

                          I had been buying B+W UV filters for my lenses but decided to try out the Leica UV. Not disappointed. This fits perfectly, the glass is crystal clear and the match to my Leica 28f2 seems perfect. I guess the main reason to buy the UV filters if really to protect the front lens glass and this UV filter does the job perfectly.
