Product Highlights
  • Protects your Lens
  • Eliminates Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • Schott B270 Optical Glass
  • 12-Layer Multicoatings
  • Close to 99% Light Transmission (UV)
  • Anodized Aluminum Filter Rings
  • Includes Storage Pouch

The Luminesque 77mm Multi Coated Pro Filter Kit contains two essential filters for general photography applications. Both filters are constructed with Schott B270 optical glass for great optical performance, and feature a 12-layer multicoating, which minimizes light reflection. This kit also includes a handy storage pouch.

The UV Filter offers close to a 99% transmission rate. The aluminum filter rings are anodized, which makes them durable and minimizes thread jamming. UV Filters are useful as general lens protectors-they guard the lens elements against dust, moisture, water, residues and grit, as well as drops, impacts or scrapes. This filter absorbs ultraviolet light and reduces haze and flare. No additional coloration or contrast is created by this filter; as a result, it can be stacked with other filters.

Polarizing filters intensify the color of an image by eliminating reflective glare, which in turn makes it possible to capture more saturated color and more contrast. A Polarizer makes white clouds seem whiter, deepens the blue of the sky, and allows you to see the stones beneath the reflective surface of a creek. The effect is strongest when used at a 90-degree angle from the sun.

For best results, Polarizers should be used when the sun is behind you, preferably about 30° off your left or right shoulder. Polarizers are unique because they are among the few filters whose effects cannot be entirely mimicked electronically. Electronic Polarizing filters used in post production are pretty good at emulating the saturated colors rendered by Polarizing filters, but they cannot reduce or eliminate glare and reflections the way glass Polarizers do at the moment the image is made.

12-layer multi-coating provides a light transmission rate of close to 99%.
Constructed from high quality Schott glass for optical clarity.
Anodized aluminum filter ring provides durability and resistance to jamming for easy threading.

UV Filter

General protection filter blocks dust, moisture, and scratches from lens elements.
Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.
Absorbs UV light and reduces bluish cast of daylight.

Circular Polarizer Filter

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Provides more saturated, vivid colors in landscape photos.
Makes skies bluer and clouds pop.
Allows seeing stones under the surface of the river.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.

    Awesome filters.

    The polarizing filters intensify the color of an image by capturing more saturated color and more contrast. The whites come out whiter, and the blues are intensified. Great for landscape and outdoors shooting!

    Got this kit with my 24-70mm f/2.8. I didn't test the UV because I already have the B&W on the lens but I tried the polarizer. The screw-on threading wasn't a good fit to the B&W - when I rotate the front piece of the polarizer in the unscrew direction, the whole filter started to come loose. Therefore I can only rotate the front piece in the filter tightening direction. (Although to be entirely fair I cannot fault Luminesque yet for this misfit because it might fit well on a Nikon UV or directly on the lens). The rotation of the front piece itself is not silky smooth either compared to the Nikon polarizer I have on a different lens - the front piece is loose on its own base ring. So I am not going to use it on my Nikon lens. I didn't study how to quantify the polarizer performance so I cannot comment on the image quality. (Also the backside seems quite hydrophilic therefore difficult to clean without leaving residue.)

          These filters were a complete disappointment. They were free with the purchase of my new lens, so I wasn't expecting much. The UV is "ok". I leave it on right now while waiting for a new one to be delivered to me that I bought. But I take it off for important photos I'm being paid to photograph. The polarizer, tried it once and it's good for a coaster now. It is low quality glass and diminishes sharpness drastically.

                  I generally view most filters as a commodity product with only controlled testing capable of discerning quantifiable differences in performance. I have little doubt that the product would perform reasonably well; however, the product does have a rather "cheap" feel relative to competing filters. The filters were included with a lens purchase, so while I appreciate the "freebie" they did not incentivize my purchase nor will I be using the filters in lieu of my current filters.

                              So far the only negative I can give this is the fact that it doesn't have a brass ring. This came as part of a kit with the 70-200 VR ii and the rest of my filters are B+W.

                                            I use this product primary for adding another layer of protection to my lens. I spent lot of money on nice lenses why not protect them with a UV filter. Great product overall. When shooting with a 3 point light set up you may experience some crazy lens flares, usually I take of the filter once I have it mounted to the tripod and I am experience alot of flare activity.

                                              I used with my lens 70-200mm2.8. It improved the sky colors a lot.

                                                Slim design and good glass. These work just how you would expect them to.

                                                    Got this kit with my 24-70mm f/2.8. I didn't test the UV because I already have the B&W on the lens but I tried the polarizer. The screw-on threading wasn't a good fit to the B&W - when I rotate the front piece of the polarizer in the unscrew direction, the whole filter started to come loose. Therefore I can only rotate the front piece in the filter tightening direction. (Although to be entirely fair I cannot fault Luminesque yet for this misfit because it might fit well on a Nikon UV or directly on the lens). The rotation of the front piece itself is not silky smooth either compared to the Nikon polarizer I have on a different lens - the front piece is loose on its own base ring. So I am not going to use it on my Nikon lens. I didn't study how to quantify the polarizer performance so I cannot comment on the image quality. (Also the backside seems quite hydrophilic therefore difficult to clean without leaving residue.)

                                                      These filters came free with the purchase of a 70-200mm f/2.8 II lens. I just received them so I have limited input on the quality of the glass, thus the image.Thes filters are extremely thin making it near impossible to attach the front lens cover when not shooting. The circular polarizer is so thin that it is very difficult to rotate and not get finger prints all over the glass. Cleaning is also difficult. All of my filters are B+W. These are a far cry from the quality of a B+W filter.

                                                          quality seems much cheeper than b+w filters, hard to get clean
