Product Highlights
  • Clear Protection Filter
  • Standard Coated
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 72mm Clear Standard Coated Filter is a simple, clear filter designed for general protection for your lens. This optically clear filter does not affect the overall image quality while helping reduce dust, scratches, moisture, and other elements from damaging your lens. This filter is standard coated for helping to reduce flare and improve light transmission.

Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology; a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.

Clear filter offers general protection for your lens against the elements.
Standard coated for lessening lens flare and improving light transmission.

      If you spend thousands of dollars for a camera it makes NO sense to not spend a few extra bucks to protect the lens with a clear filter. Scratch the filter, get a new one. Scratch the lens and get a new one? Ouch. All four of my cameras have this filter. You need this.

      I found that the glass appears to have permanent smudges that will not come off. Using it on Sony NX3 camcorder and, at certain angles, a double reflection from light appears. Maybe that's the nature of using a filter, but I've removed it an will take my chances by shooting "unprotected". I'll keep it in my bag for shooting in questionable environments.

          Seems to be a decent product. A bit on the expensive side considering that it is only a "standard coated" filter, whatever it means.

              While I have not done a side by side comparison, the filter does not appear to introduce any artefacts, and the coating seems to eliminate flairing.

                      It does what it's supposed to do very well.

                      I purchased this after scratching one of the lens, and as I go climbing mountain quite a bit, I'm less worreid of scratching the actual lens.

                          I bought this for my 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 Nikkor. My only complaint is that it makes it a little more difficult to put the lens cap on, but it stays.

                            Really, you don't ask a clear filter to do much more than protect the much more valuable by comparison front element of your lens. This it does admirably, and dust/pollen/models bounce off well, leaving your lens unharmed. Construction feels solid enough, Screws in well (on a Nikon 24-120mm f3.5-5.6D anyways) And has yet to embarrass me by flying off at an inconvenient moment.

                            I'll be honest and say I bought this because it was the cheapest available at the time, and have yet to question it's build quality or 'clearness', and it comes with a padded case that you will never use again.

                                        Looking through the lens it is like it is not even there.

                                          What can I say. It is a clear filter and I don't own a lens that doesn't have one on it.

                                                I bought this clear filter to protect the front element on the 28-135IS kit lens that came with my new 7D and it does exactly that!

                                                    I put a filter on every lens, immediately upon purchase and never take them off. They are added protection for my valuable investment.
                                                    Typically, I don't use a lens cap on them; I hope to never miss that one shot, having to remove the lens cap.
                                                    I love the clear filters, they don't add any color casts etc. to my photos. Anything can typiclaly be fixed in Photoshop, so I don't use a polarizing or UV filter.
