          Comments about Hoya 72mm Clear Pro 1 Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter:

          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 debated whether I should buy a filter or not because of compromising optical quality. However, a beach trip was in my future and I decided to go ahead a do it. I'm glad that I did because the salt spray was ridiculous and I found myself cleaning the filter a lot. I also had no optical issues even while shooting in full beach sun. I highly recommend this filter.

                            This thing really is clear. When I took it out of the box for the first time I thought the glass was missing. I was very hesitant to put anything in front of my lens, but I have not noticed any adverse effects. I'm now a believer and plan to buy one for each of my good lenses.

                                  I use this to protect my lens, with the thread available for attaching other filters, my glass stays clean. It is easy to clean. It did not reduce the light, so it is good for day and night event.

                                      Great filter. I feel better having it on my lens at all times since it's so durable and protective. I don't worry all the time about a lens cap now!

                                      This is the typical Hoya clear filter with superb clear glass and excellent multicoating. The threads flow smoothly into the lens and sit snugly once attached. They do seem to be a little harder to clean than my other non-Hoya filters, but nothing a Lenspen doesn't take care of.

                                        I purchased this filter thinking that it would provide UV protection, but I guess it is just a clear protector. A little bummed, but none the less my fault for not researching. I took about 1000 shots with the filter and I can't say I've had a problem with it.
