The Hoya 62mm Ultraviolet (UV) Pro 1 Digital Filter is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

Digital camera CCD or CMOS sensors are highly susceptible to reflections. This stray light can ruin your photographs with flare and ghosting. Hoya Digital Multi-Coating reduces any internal reflections, which means a clearer image with greater contrast.

A UV filter not only minimizes the bluish cast sometimes found under daylight conditions, but is also the best available protection against accidental damage to the front element of your lens. A lens that accidentally gets dropped on its front element while hiking can potentially be saved by purchasing this item. Some people refer to it as "cheap insurance".

As a lens protector, it should be left on at all times. Aside from that more-than-significant benefit, UV filters render your photos clearer, sharper and more contrasty. For those who enjoy outdoor photography, especially distant vistas, a UV filter can produce a more distinct and acceptable image by removing much of the blue tint normally associated with atmospheric haze.

The advantage of most Hoya filters is that Hoya puts, at least, one layer of anti-reflective coating on each side of their glass. It is not bare glass. Even if the glass is not multi-coated, this kind of production tends to minimize flare and ghosting. Digital Multi-Coating takes this protection to a higher level.

Hoya is one of the largest manufacturers of glass in the filter industry. In collaboration with its parent company, Tokina Optical, Hoya continues to strive to produce some of the best glass on the market. Currently, they hold 40% of the world's market for optical glass.

Note! Pro 1 Digital filters are ultra thin, but have a front thread

              very thin, much thinner than previous filter I used so much less vignetting at wide angle. Has threads that allow additional filter to be added. Also like finger grip ridges on rim that makes removing filter easier - especially important for narrow filter. Very pleased with it

                          Hoya filters are great accessories to protect front elements from drops and scratches . Even while pixel peeping, there's no significant deterioration in IQ. A carelessly dropped lens will cost 5x the amount to repair that this lens costs--this filter is good instance for when your camera is dropped or knocked over.

                                I have purchased two of these filters in this size now. No one really can compete with the great quality of Hoya's Multi Coated Optics. They live up to all they are advertised to do. My personal preference are the Pro 1 digital filters due to multi coating and filter thickness. (thinner filters are less likely to effect image quality) I purchase one of these filters every time I buy a new lense and it goes on and never is taken off, keeping my front element in like new condition.

                                    This filter did the job. No glare, to flares, I didn't even notice it was on the lens. I did not compare the quality of image before and after but for the price it did a great job without interfering with sensors.

                                    The product quality is great. It gives me confidence that my lens is protected, and it's hard to believe the difference in photo quality between Hoya and off-brand filters. It is a little difficult to clean, but be persistent.

                                      The Hoya Pro 1 Digital Filter line is my preferred way to protect expensive lenses. This filter remains on my lens unless there is a very good reason to remove it. It is completely transparent, and my comparisons of critical image resolutions with filter on or off show no difference. I strongly recommend the Hoya filter line; the filters are well-constructed and do not degrade the image or reduce the light in any significant way.
