      Low flare. Difficult to clean.

            Comments about Sony 49mm Multi-Coated (MC) Protector Filter:

            Compared to generic nano-coating, B+W MRC and Hoya SHMC, the T* actually seems to flare less than the competition. With a "thumbprint" test, the T* filter is a little bit tougher to clean compared to MRC. It's also not a hydrophobic coating.

              It's what you'd expect, a good quality lens protector that fits the Sony DSC-RX1 perfectly.

                    This accessory is essential. For an extremely low cost, it provides excellent protection against a scratched lens - which would be catastrophic.

                    Comments about Sony 49mm Multi-Coated (MC) Protector Filter:

                    This is a UV filter that I use to protect my lens' front element. The primary intention is so I can clean it with impunity and abuse it (i.e. wipe it off with a shirt) when necessary. As with any filter, it works fine in that capacity.

                    This small (49mm) filter has a substantial feel to it, more so than other 49mm filters I've had. The frame is specified as being aluminum. The machine work and finish is very good.

                    The Zeiss T* coating works fine, but is not better than the Hoya S-HMC, nor even the Sigma anti-flare coating. In my casual testing shooting into a lamp, the Zeiss T* coating as realized on this filter manifests the most obvious ghosting amongst these three. It is better than Hoya HMC, though, and certainly better than uncoated filters, although it better be considering its price.

                    I did not test its optical qualities (resolution), as I assumed that its effect on the image is comparable to other quality filters: negligible. It is Zeiss, after all.

                    This filter was destroyed a week ago in the course of a photo shoot at a street party. I was in the course of changing a lens (with this filter on) when I was bumped, and I dropped my lens. I flailed to try to catch it (good reflexes), but missed (bad hand-eye) and managed to propel the lens further away before it landed on the unyielding concrete. Gah.

                    To my surprise, the filter took the brunt of the impact. It saved the lens. Of course, luck had as much to do with how the lens landed for the initial, hardest impact... but without the filter there and the destruction thereof to dissipate the energy, the lens would've surely been destroyed.

                    This also revealed why the small filter semed so relatively substantial: the Zeiss filter glass is apparently quite thick.

                    I have ordered the identical filter to replace it.

                        A clear or UV filter is a must for all your lenses. I learned the hard way when I scratched the front element of an expensive Zeiss lens. The cost in minimal for the protection it gives.

                                  Does what it is supposed to - protects the lens.
                                  The Sony conversion lenses don't fit over with this on the 16mm lens. Pain to have to take it on and off.
