The B+W 52mm XS-Pro UV MRC-Nano 010M Filter is a general use, clear filter designed to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. Aside from the reduction of unwanted blue casts, no additional coloration or contrast is created, and adjustments to exposure are not required while using this filter. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections while providing over 99.8% light transmission, each glass surface includes multiple layers of anti-reflection coating. This Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) also offers greater protection to the filter substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters. The Nano coating associated with XS-Pro filters provides an additional eighth layer over the MRC, resulting in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency.

B+W filters are constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter features a thin brass filter ring to minimize the potential for vignetting while enhancing durability and jamming prevention. To further reduce the possibility of vignetting when this filter is in use, the filter ring's outside diameter is slightly larger than the actual thread size. This may prevent the use of some lens manufacturer bayonet hoods.

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

      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 do protect with filters and find the B&W offers both excellent mechanical construction with good glass. More expensive, but so are the lenses I pair it with.

        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.

                    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.
