Product Highlights
  • Clear Filter for Protection
  • 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 Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter is a simple, clear filter designed for general protection for your lens. This optically clear filter does not affect the overall image quality while helping reduce dust, scratches, moisture, and other elements from damaging your lens.

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.

        Excellent quality, easy to clean, low profile. Always use B+W filters for the quality. No point in putting a cheap filter on an expensive lens. I use this variety for all my Canon lenses.

          what can I say about B+W filters they are the highest quality I can buy. These filters are so clear I can't find it with out my Nano 007 filter finder detector device.

            Caveat Nano Emptor

                  Comments about B+W 52mm XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter:

                  I purchased this 52 mm filter for lens front element "insurance" for my Olympus MFT 12-60mm kit lens. The overall quality, fit and finish is up to my expectations for B&W filters. I was seduced to pay an additional $7-8 for the promise of "Nano" coating. In my excitement and anticipation, however, I neglected to read the fine print.

                  The outer diameter of this is ever so marginally greater than the 52 mm diameter of the lens barrel. As such, the only way I am able to use my bayonet style lens hood is by attaching it without the filter in place.

                  I'm no optics expert but can not imagine what would compel a manufacturer selling a product ostensibly for lens protection that is incapable of being used with a bayonet style lens hood. The hood, in addition to its potential flare reducing benefit, represents the major compliment to the filter as regards protecting the lens. Go figure. In all fairness, I can't say B & H didn't warn me.

                  Exactly as described; optically perfect.

                    I know, it's only a filter, but if you want coverage for your lens, there is nothing better than this. Absolutely no loss of image quality and no reflections. No need for UV with digital cameras so clear is the best choice.
