Product Highlights
  • Absorbs Ultraviolet Light
  • Reduces Bluish Cast of Daylight
  • General Protective Filter
  • MRC Multi-Resistant Coating
  • Nano Coating Simplifies Cleaning Process
  • Rugged Matte Black Brass Filter Ring
  • High Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 52mm XS-Pro UV MRC-Nano 010M Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

The UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

The Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) is both an anti-reflection coating as well as a protective surface. It helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, it offers greater protection to the filter substrate and stays cleaner for longer than uncoated filters. The Nano coating associated with XS-Pro filters incorporates an additional 8th layer over the regular MRC and results in a better beading effect with water for greater cleaning efficiency.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter features the XS-Pro Digital mount which is specifically designed for DSLR use with wide angle and zoom lenses. The filter ring is made from brass for durability as well as jamming prevention.

Note: This filter ring's outside diameter is slightly larger than the actual thread size, and because of this you may be unable to attach the lens manufacturer's bayonet-mounted lens hood to the lens while using this filter. This is dependent on your specific lens and how thick the front rim of the lens is; with thinner, low-profile lenses usually being affected more.

      Good Filter

      I am an avid outdoor photographer. Taking photos daily and this filter is worth the money. Very crisp and made of good German glass.

      I use this filter constantly on my Lumix G5. It never comes off the lens. The quality of the picture is much better with this filter. The glass in the B + W Lens is of high quality. B + W are the only lens filters I will purchase.

            I love the build quality of B+W. The lenses used in these filters are of the best quality.

            One of the best feature I like about this filter is how thin the filters is.

                  Bought this for my zoom (12-50mm) kit lens on my new Olympus OM-D E-M5. The Nano coating is certainly an improvement in multi-coated lenses. Helps significantly with the cleaning of the UV filter.

                  German quality really means something! The filter is well made, compact and solid. The Nano coating makes the water bead off, leaving the filter clear. Why put a cheap filter on a good piece of glass? Does it make sense, NO! Pay the price, it is worth it!

                        Excellent slim filter that I basically use as a lens protector since I stopped using a lens cap.
                        Originally had a B+W UV filter that exhibited quite a bit of ghosting and purchased this as it had the multi-resistant coating but am still finding some mild ghosting when shooting at night and there are lights in the scene.
                        Still satisfied with the purchase as primarily intended as protection.

                          I own a B+W UV filter for every single lens that I own, the vast majority of them being XS-Pro 010M coated. I use them not just for their lens protection qualities in addition to a hood, but also because of their dust and moisture resistance and ease of cleaning.

                            B+W continues to be my favorite. Brass construction, and tough, cleanable coating with minimum flare. It's tempting to cheap out on this kind of filter, but you'll be glad you didn't.

                              Joking aside, this is a great filter. I always put a UV filter on my lenses, right out of the box. It's a transparent lens cap. The front element stays pristine, and the filter takes the abuse. Why replace a damaged front element when you can replace a damaged filter instead?

                              The B+W filters, though, are difficult to damage. they clean up quickly, and are optically excellent. Spend a bit more up front, get a better piece of glass to shoot through that will last longer.

                                Attached this to my Olympus 12-50mm lens on my E-M5. Works well and has no visible image degradation. The nano coating makes cleaning this filter easier than any other filter I have ever used.

                                  This is a GREAT UV filter, to be used on every level of photography. And it's wonderful when you shoot in the shade ... it reduces the bluish cast so often associated with daylight in the shade. Wonderful filter to leave on camera also, for protection... double duty.

                                        Excellent filter from B+W. Great for protection and reducing UV haze. No Image quality degradation, very easy cleaning, and excellent mount. I use it on my Canon 40mm pancake lens to reduce any unnecessary scratching on the lens from cleaning or other reason.
