The 58mm Ultraviolet UV(0) Haze HD (High Density) Filter from Hoya is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

This filter, with its hardened glass, has 4x the tensile strength of traditional filters of similar fabrication. This filter is also of great use in today's digital market where sensors are more sensitive to reflected light. Hoya incorporates special coatings that reduce these internal reflections and, thereby, promote a clearer, brighter and sharper image. The multi-coating used in this filter is made up of 8 layers on each side that promote 99.35% light transmission.

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.

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.

        Comments about Hoya 58mm Ultraviolet UV Haze HD (High Density) Digital Filter:

        Been using Hoya filters for over thirty years!
        Using this filter on my OMD EM-1 40-150mm zoom lens.
        Made sure the lens was clean then easily screwed on the filter. Should never need to take it off. Protect that valuable lens with a UV filter!

                                  Comments about Hoya 58mm Ultraviolet UV Haze HD (High Density) Digital Filter:

                                  I bought the Hoya UV HD filter for a Canon kit lens. The EFS 18-55 usually performed well except with sunset/sunrise and backlit subjects. I decided to try this filter before sinking big money into a better lens and I'm glad I did. My images, in trickier lighting situations, look sharper with less flare.

                                    I use this filter to protect the lens on my Rebel T3i. All my lenses have UV filters. (It's the cheapest insurance you can buy.)

                                    Other filters/close-up lenses easily screw into the threads of this filter, helping you avoid the need to remove it.

                                        I can't see the glass in this filter, reflectivity is so low!
                                        No problems with it on the Fujifilm X-E1 18-55mm kit zoom!

                                          Bought 2 to protect the L quality lenses on Canon 18x50 IS binoculars which are rain-proof and rubber-armored. In a salt spray environment, I did not want to be cleaning exposed, multi-coated L quality objectives. The filters claim to be water repellant and scratch resistent. They do stand out 3 mm in front of the rubber armor, so be careful not to bash the binocs around. These High Density filters claim to have 4x tensile strength of regular filter glass, so less likely to break if incurring a minor bash. If you have Canon 15 or 18x50 IS binocs, be sure to buy 2 Tamron 58 mm lens caps. They work perfectly and are essential.

                                              The Hoya is a nice addition to my new glass 50mm 1.8 Nikkor. No change in portrait photos and haven't done to many landscape photos to say if I notice any change. It's a strong filter that will protect your costly lens. I just leave mine on 24/7.

                                                  Super clear, and no refections whatsoever. I've never used filters till I found these, even when I shot with the Pentax 67 and the Mamiya RZ67 ProII.

                                                    This filter is used for protection instead of the lens cap when I'm out shooting. There is no perceptional difference between using the filter and leaving it off. Also, fingerprints come off easily.
