    A UV filter is a must for most lenses to not only cut out UV but also to protect the front of the lens. It beats me why the lens manufacturers don't include one with a new lens however I'm a loyal Hoya brand user and have used their products for like 30 years. I'm also a great fan of Nikon/Nikkor and use Hoya filters all the time. This is a great filter for the price and I doubt if you'd see any difference using one 2-3x the price.

    A decent filter overall, but two things I don't like about it. One, the glass sounds loose when you tap on it, thought I got a bad copy, but the 2nd one was the same. Second, the glass is really hard to clean. Rubbing in circular motion would not work-it'll only leave smudge like marks, so you'll have to rub it in other ways. Spend a little more money and get yourself a higher quality filter

            This haze filter seems a little hazy? Bought to protect new lens, the old one had a lot of scratches. I can't seem to get it totally clear though which defeats the purpose. I'll keep trying.

                  I use this on my sigma 24mm lens to protect it physically. I have not encountered any ghosting or flaring from using this filter. It came clean out of the box and feels of good quality.

                      This is the second Hoya UV Haze Filter that I've purchased for my D300. It provides good protection for my lens, much cheaper than damaging an element. (In addition to the hood, which I use on most occasions.) This was the recommended brand by one of the B&H sale professionals and I trusted them to give me good advice.

                              A UV filter should be absolutely mandatory for all of your lenses just for protecting the lens itself. Even used for indoor filming. It also cuts down on UV haze for all of your exterior shots.

                              This filter was middle of the road in pricing and has been perfect for my needs. I shoot on a DSLR 4 - 5 days per week and this filter has been durable and protective of my 77mm lens.

                                  Hoya UV (C) filters are a good value. I am using them on all of my lenses to protect the front glass elements from moisture and dust. The price is right for a multicoated filter for hobbyist photographers like me. If I were a pro I'd probably go for the pricey B&W's or Heliopans.

                                    Always get clear UV filters on any new lens. Cheap insurance to protect the lens and I'm not so worried about the lens when I go in the great outdoors.

                                    I make sure that it have a Hoya protecting my valuable lenses. That takes the worry of an accidental bump that could be costly. Hoya is also valuable as a filter of UV Haze. Trust them , for I do.

                                    bought this for a lens to complete the weather sealing. wanted something reasonably priced and this fit the bill. Quality seems fine and no perceivable difference than when the filter was off.
