The Hoya 49mm Ultraviolet UV (C) Haze Filter is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

      I use this filter often when "atmosphere" becomes just plain "haze". I use it, in my case, on a 150mm Rodenstock view camera lens and the Hoya HMC multicoating complements the multicoating on the (unshaded) lens. It is also a better lens protector. It won't make a new lens out of an old, cruddy one but it will help

      Good, but you may look at the 49mm B+W , of superior quality (@B&H also).

        Bought this for my FujiFilm X100. Essential for protecting the lens. Note that you need to by an adapter ring to attach any filters to the FujiFilm X100.

                  Not necessary for a digital sensor because they're more sensitive to IR lights, but a must for a film camera!

                  Hoya makes the best filters, pure and simple. This is cheap and a great placeholder when you're not using a warming filter or contrast filter. Just get one!

                                I have been using Hoya and Tiffen filters for ages. As usual, this filter did not disappoint me. The quality is excellent and multi layer surface coating minimizes glare nicely. I especially like the ultra thin profile of this filter. Its a lot thinner that others.

                                        I bought this as protection for my Sony 18-55mm Zoom lens front element. It works great and doesn't distort the image.

                                          Primarily bought this for general lens protection. I am currently using it with the Fujifilm FInePix X100. It has a clean look, and slightly matte-black filter coating. Picture quality does not deteriorate as the controversy states. I still say go safe and invest in a UV filter. I would recommend this for any 49mm lens threads.

                                                I've been primarily using this filter to protect my Pentax FA 50mm. The multicoating on this filter does a "reasonable" job in preventing glare. However, I have noticed some minor glare spots when shooting in extreme situations like right in front of a light bulb - easily resolved by using a lens hood in conjunction with this filter.
