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 77mm 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.

      No more vignetting on my 24mm lens. Nice and clear. Very low profile. Easy to clean. Most people buy a UV filter and never question why? If you own a digital camera you already have a UV filter. It's over the sensor. Why filter twice. A UV filter will also cause a color shift. Try it for yourself. Take a picture with and without a UV filter. A clear filter is the way to go. I use it along the Oregon coast to protect my lens from salt spray. I recommend this filter to all of my photo tour participants. It protects the lens quite well.

      Let me first say that the filter is nice, if it doesn't have any coating defects. The one I ordered had several blemishes on the coating right out of the box. The blemishes look as if the coating is missing in these spots. They may not affect the exposure, but when you are paying this much for a filter, it shouldn't have any blemishes at all. I get the feeling that B+W is getting sloppy in trying to catch up to demand for the NANO filters.

        Comments about B+W 77mm XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter:

        There is an ongoing dialog about whether to filter or not. I believe in having a first class protective filter on each of my lenses. Over the years I've had three filters take the hit and protect the lens.

        I either buy B&W or OEM filters and have always felt I lost little in resolution or added flare.

          B+W makes a superb protective filter. Switched to a full frame camera and the old filter was vignetting at the wide end (24 mm) of my walking around lens. This filter takes care of that issue and the lens cap and lens hood still work. And B&H continues to provide fantastic customer service.

          Does What It Is Supposed To Do

              Comments about B+W 77mm XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter:

              Some photographers never use filters. Some do. I choose to protect my lens investment, but I'm also keenly aware that I don't want to put cheap glass in front of a very expensive lens - it ruins the purpose by degrading the image quality before the lens ever even receives the light.

              I've been using B+W filters for a long time, but primarily their UV filters. This is the first time I used a clear filter from them, and it has been working extremely well. I see no degradation in image quality (testing with the filter and with it off). It's just there, clear and doing it's job of protecting the lens and providing a safe and strong surface to clean off dust/water drops/etc, without adding flare or otherwise negatively affecting the image.

              Exactly what I wanted it to do.

              I needed a filter to make cleaning easier without affecting my images. It is perfectly clear with a low profile. There is no discernable difference to the quality of my images. Still very sharp with unchanged color rendition compared to images without the filter

                Comments about B+W 77mm XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter:

                I use this on my Nikon 16-35 and it's awesome. The filter doesn't ever get stuck on the camera (unlike a Hoya polarizer I have that glues itself on if I'm not careful). It's also very easy to clean with a microfiber cloth or a cotton shirt in a pinch. I don't mind doing things to it that I would never do to a lens, which was the whole point of buying it.

                It's nice and thin so no vignetting even at 16 which is great, and it still has a front lip for the lens cap.

                I was also pleasantly surprised that reflections are very well controlled. They still exist, but they're tiny spots. Shooting directly into the sun at times I wouldn't notice anything. At night with street lights etc. though there are often small green reflection blobs, but again they're pretty minimal.

                I was hesitant to spend so much on a clear filter, but B+W lived up to their name on this one. I am curious though if the UV filter performs any different, considering it's a bit cheaper.

                  The only complaint I could possibly see for this filter is the price....but you get what you pay for and in this case it is worth every penny! Constructed with great glass and the nano coating cleans easily as advertised. Lens cap fits well. No regrets and will purchase on for all my lenses.

                    Shooting with a D800 so the resolution will show every flaw. I have completely tested with and without filter and see no difference at all.
                    Expensive but why would you skimp when putting something in front of your lens? Satisfied.

                              You don't buy a $2,500 lens and put a $5 piece of glass in front of it. Buy a B+W filter. Just take a deep breath and do it.

                                If you're going to buy a filter, don't go cheap. I've never been disappointed with B+W. The XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter is super slim, made of high quality materials in Germany, and is easy to clean. Highly recommended!

                                  I side with the filters for protection camp. The glass and coating on the XS-Pro line clean easily and I've moved to the clear rather than UV for the lenses I use only on digital cameras. The nano is thin but still my lens caps will clip in and stay in with these filters unlike some other thin filters.

                                    These are the best. I switched to the XS-Pro from the F-Pro because they are thinner, lighter, easier to clean, and spectrally neutral.

                                    There has been long and heated debates of filter v. non-filter, but I chose to go with a filter because I shoot a lot outdoors at the beach where it can be pretty windy and at sporting events sitting on the sidelines where you can easily get run over with all the action. For me, the filter is an extra level of protection and the reason I chose the 007 was because of the high-quality coating and brass ring. Shooting with a modern DSLR (Canon 5Dm3) negates the need with going to a UV filter. The Nano-007 is slim but it can still fit my center-pinch lense cap with no issues. The price is a bit steep, but for most things optical, you get what you pay for.
