The Hoya 40.5mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others.

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

Hoya HMC filters are multi-coated for reducing flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface. As a result, over 97% light transmission is possible, providing you with additional contrast and high color fidelity.

The UV NXT filters are constructed from high quality, heat-resistant, high-transparency optical glass and a precision milled low-profile aluminum frame.

      I bought this to protect my Sony 16-50mm lens. I was worried that a filter would create vignetting at the 16mm wide end, but this Hoya filter was advertised to be "low-profile" so I took a chance. When it arrived it did not seem particularly thin, but it has not caused vignetting, so I am happy with it. Its 3-layer multi-coating is a further benefit.

      I have many Hoya filters on my lenses. They are all made in Japan. I was surprised to find that this one is made in Philippines when I received it. Then I find a shiny spot on the surface of filter that can not be removed. I returned this filter and buy a Nikon one instead.

                Comments about Hoya 40.5mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter:

                This is not just a simple UV filter that can be used to protect the lens, it also has a coating to reduce flare caused by internal reflections between filter and the lens's front element. I was able to click photos against a bright source and photos came out with less than noticeable flare! Ordinary UV filters without coating produce images with lot of flare if you click photos against a bright source. I definitely recommend this filter although it costs little bit more than ordinary UV filters. The additional cost is definitely worth paying for. I used this with Sony SELP16-50 f/3.5-5.6 NEX 5T kit lens.

                            I don't like using lenscaps, just more to mess with. All of my lenses have UV filters. In the 40.5mm size I have tried cheaper all-glass filters, but this simple multicoated filter works much better, no shine or other artifacts due to the filter. It's also slimer, which is nice since the whole point of the small camerasystem that users these size filters is the small part. I orded 2 more of these to replace my other glass filters in this size.

                                I use this odd-sized filter on a Nikon P7700, primarily to protect the lens. The threads for mounting to the camera and for attaching the lens cap or a lens hood are well machined and make for smoothe connections. Unlike some filters that I have, even by high end makers, the filter detaches as easily as it attaches. While at this writing the camera has had limited use, I see no optical abberations that can be atributed to the filter. It's a good value for that extra lens protection.

                                  I use this filter primarily as a lens protector but also for haze prevention. The multicoating keeps the image clear with no reflections, unlike lower-quality, non-multicoated filters.

                                      I've had several Hoya UV filters over the years , although not the best filter. Works well with my point and shoot Coolpix 7700.

                                            Comments about Hoya 40.5mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter:

                                            I bought this to protect my Sony 16-50mm lens. I was worried that a filter would create vignetting at the 16mm wide end, but this Hoya filter was advertised to be "low-profile" so I took a chance. When it arrived it did not seem particularly thin, but it has not caused vignetting, so I am happy with it. Its 3-layer multi-coating is a further benefit.

                                                  I have many Hoya filters on my lenses. They are all made in Japan. I was surprised to find that this one is made in Philippines when I received it. Then I find a shiny spot on the surface of filter that can not be removed. I returned this filter and buy a Nikon one instead.
