      Comments about Hoya 58mm Clear Pro 1 Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

      Living in FL, I am around wind and sand a lot. After having a lens sand-blasted and ruined in the past, I began using UV filters for the protection I needed in those conditions. After recently purchasing a Fuji X E2 with 18 - 55mm lens, I decided to try this filter for the protection I needed. I shot several test images both with and without the filter and can see no image quality difference. This filter appears to be the best protection money can buy. It sure will be cheaper to replace than a new lens.

          Have Hoya filters for every lens I own and would never go with anything else! Bought this one for my fujifilm x-e1 and love it! As lenses get more and more costly, it's imperative that you protect it! Worth every penny!

            I use this to protect my lenses in transit (in case the lens cap comes off in the bag). I also use them to protect the lens glass if the weather is inclement, there's lot of salt spray, when sand is blowing, etc. Conditions permitting, I usually take the clear filters off while shooting though.

              I recently got a Canon Rebel T3i as a gift. I got 2 lenses with the camera & even though they are not top of the line - I do not want to replace either one. This Pro 1 Clear Filter is great for my lenses. I bought 2 so I can leave them on my lenses at all times. Took over 200 pictures at my granddaughter's 3rd birthday party this past weekend. It was outside at a park & windy. The filter worked great - no effect on the quality of the pictures & I was easily able to clean the dust off the filter instead of worrying about the lens

                        I looked at many brands of filter before having decided to get this Hoya filter. I didn't want to get any cheap filter either. So after thorough research I bought this filter for my olympus lens in May for our Mexico trip mainly for protection of my expensive lens. I was afraid that it would have affected the outcome for the worse then I would be in trouble with my Bride.
                        I tested it at home before the trip and after the trip I couln't be any happier. The pictures come out vividly colorful and very real. The water (ocean) came out beautifully blue and green as if you are there next to it. (This was with my Olympus E30 camera).

                        Totally recommend this filter to anyone who owns and wants to protect his/her expensive lens.

                              I like this line of filters from Hoya. The Pro 1 are very thin and don't affect wide angle lenses like normal filter (ex. 24mm lenses on Full Frame). This clear filter has no affect at all on image quality. A great value for the price.

                                  Came just as described. Fits perfectly on my 50 mm.

                                      Comments about Hoya 58mm Clear Pro 1 Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

                                      I put this filter on about .25 seconds after first taking the lens cap off my new lens. The filter feels solid and is crystal clear. I haven't experienced any flaring, reflections, or any other optical aberrations after shooting 1,000 frames through this. I should say that I have it on a 50mm lens and there is no vignetting from the frame of this filter, as would be expected. I'd definitely recommend this filter for protection; it's much cheaper than the lens.

                                            I buy the Pro 1 to help decrease the glare & stray light through the lens. I use the clear glass because this is not used for distance & I don't need to reduce UV

                                              Sharp images is all that matters and this Filter helps to produce those images.

                                              I dropped and damaged my old UV Filter and was delighted to find that B&H offered this Clear Pro 1 Filter as my permanent lens protector with all the additional benifits.
