      I've needed to purchase a filter for my Canon 28-135mm IS Lens for quite some time. I don't like leaving my lens exposed, so I always put a UV Protector Filter on the end. Not only does it protect the lens from scratches, dust, etc. (it's cheaper to replace a filter than it is to replace a lens!), but it makes the colors in my images pop more and they don't have that faded, washed out look that you can get without the UV Filter.

      I give this the lukewarm 3-stars; it's great for protecting my Canon lens from dust, scrapes, and such - but I've consistently noticed an appreciable difference (improvement) in image quality when I am not using the filter. Even so, I generally keep the filter (and the separately-purchased hood) on my walk around lens - especially when I'm traveling and transporting my gear (i.e., not using the lens). When I use the lens at home or in non-dusty, non-chaotic environments, I opt to remove this filter for the best image quality possible.

      My recommendation of this product is based on protecting the lens from dust and/or the inadvertent banging around of a lens from normal use; the filter is well constructed and firmly mounts on my Canon 28-135mm lens.

            I'm using this filter on my Cannon Rebel to protect the lens glass. So far it works great. Surprisingly the Cannon brand filter was the least expensive option when I purchased it.

                  It seems to be pretty durable, and it fit my lens perfectly. There is a bit of a shrill noise when I screw it in to the lens, but that's really the only vaguely negative thing I noticed about it. I feel a lot better knowing this is on my lens.

                      Comments about Canon 72mm UV Protector Filter:

                      I always buy Canon UV filters and they are usually immaculate upon receipt. This seemed to be a different quality. It was full of dust, smudges and fingerprints, was cloudy and seemed scratched around the thread. It also came in different (cheaper) packaging from the usual Canon filters I have previously purchased. It took me a good 15 minutes to get it clean. I have yet to test it outside but I'm hoping I don't have a faulty product. Rather disappointing as I want to use it on my new 135mm f/2 lens.

                        nothing special about this filter though it does a nice job limiting blue tones for daylight, landscape photos. good for everyday photography and keeping the lens free from dust, dirt, scratches, etc.

                                    Looking to replace a UV filter that has some scratches on it from three years of use. I thought I would try a Canon brand filter since I have Canon cameras and lenses.
                                    I was disappointed that the filter was cloudy and needed to be cleaned before it could be used.

                                        I got this to protect my lens when I do not have my lens cover on. It is really awesome!!! I wasn't sure if it would glare on some pictures or reduce the quality, but so far it has been doing great and I haven't seen in any way that it affected the picture. It seems to be very well built and does not seem to be just a cheap thing. It fits perfect to my 28-135mm lens and my lens hood still fits with it on and also the lens cover.

                                                  It's not a guardian angel for your lenses but it's a little armor for the lens's front glass. The filter does very little in the way of "reduces excessive blue; cuts through haze and can improve image clarity." This is true if you're still using film cameras but it is absolutely not true for digital cameras. Image quality is slightly better w/out the filter on my Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens and EOS 7D. In my opinion, a lens hood is better.
