      I use it as a lens protector for my Nikon 18 - 200 vr lens. I was using a UV filter from my old film camera and this is much cleaner in my photos. I like the thin mounting ring that still has threads for the lens cap.

      Very clear, but poorly finished.

      The edge of the round filter is shown in the front, making the filter looks poorly finished.

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

      Installed on my lenses for protecting the front cover from dust, fingerprints, etc.
      Thoroughly tested in Lower Antelope Canyon in Page, AZ. Guide scattered dust, micro-gravel into the air to highlight the sunlight coming down the canyon. It rained the dirt all over my lenses! These protected my FL lenses completely, and did not scratch themselves which was surprising given the volume and composition of the dirt/gravel/sand. No additional flaring observed, even with sun on the front of the filter.
      Highly recommended!

        Have used Hoya filters on all my Canon lenses. As with the other Hoya filters I own, no problems, and protects as it should from the occasional bumps, etc.

            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.

                                Got it for my sony 16-50mm f2.8, no complaints, no regrets.

                                  Primary use for me is to protect my lens, therefore the fact that I don't even know it's there is just what I wanted.

                                    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!
