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 72mm 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.

        I don't know what it is about B&W, but you can just tell it's a better quality than the others. Don't put a cheap filter on your expensive camera. Get a good one and be done with it. This will be my 4th B&W filter and I plan to buy more from B&H.

        perfect filter

        Comments about B+W 72mm XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter:

        When you hold it in your hand it is virtually "just the ring" with no glass. Unless you look at it from an angle that you can see the light bouncing back, then you can tell there is glass.
        When I made a 100% crop test I could not tell which photo was with the filter which one without.
        After those two tests I have no more questions.
        I use it on zeiss 35mm 1.4 zf.2. They make a great couple, really in love :)...
        Built quality excellent. It screws on and out without any problem.

          Having a strong super clear UV Filter in front of the 50L Canon took a day of research. Strong and clear like the 010 less color distortion. German tank build quality at a very affordable price tag. Best protection for L glass and any glass in general.

                  The discussion of "to filter" or not to filter is as heated as Canon vs the other guy ... I'm giving a clear filter a try rather than a UV. I use my lenses on film cameras as well so putting them off and on is even less practical for my in the field shooting style. As others have noted, this model is very clear and my new pinch Canon caps stay put.

                    imho, B&W are the premier brand of filters - brass threads, thin mounts to minimize vignetting, flatness and all the rest. it's my brand of choice on Nikon lenses. Wish that B&W made lenses, now that I think about it.

                          B+W costs more but worth every penny. Their quality includes a ring made out of brass for durability. I have never been disappointed by their products. The filter is a slim design and while the lens cap fits you need to double check that it is securely attached. This is not an issue.

                                It's like it's not even there.

                                I use Olympus Zuiko lenses with great pleasure (traditional 4/3 HG for now, and eventually SHG if lucky), so wanted the lightest yet sturdiest protection possible without any degradation in image quality... Well, this is it!

                                I was also a bit afraid to have trouble inserting my lense caps, but everything fits perfectly.

                                I have thus ordered two more B&W XS-Pro clear & UV filters of different sizes, end of analysis!

                                  Clearest front element lens protective filter I have ever owned. The quality is evident. Worth the extra dollars.

                                    Used on Canon 50 1.2L, cannot even tell there is glass or a filter as it is crystal clear. Perfect fit.

                                      I've purchased the B+W line of filters for all of my lenses (4). This one went on my Canon 50 1.2L. This was the first variation I've used in the "Nano" series. It is a bit thinner while retaining the ability to keep the lens cover attached firmly (like the thicker rimmed types). Of course the glass is completely clear meaning holding it up to the light it's barely noticeable there is glass between the metal ring! I selected the clear glass as a sole means of front lens element protection. BH and it's quick shipping methods were great as usual!

                                          High quality construction, extremely clear, and no unwanted reflections.

                                          The quality of this filter matches the build quality of my L lenses!

                                          I use this filter to protect my Canon 85mm 1.2 lens. It fits perfect and minimally effects the quality of the pictures. B+W is the only brand filter I purchase.

                                            Worth the price, this filter is crystal clear, it looks like it's not even there. It also has a front thread so I can easily layer other filters onto it if needed. The perfect lens protector.
