The Hoya 77mm 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 for my Tokina 11-16mm with good results. So I bought another one for my Canon 17-55mm. I thought you wouldn't see a difference between a Hoya and a cheaper third party filter. However, you can see the difference especially in light flares. It may feel like you are paying a lot for a filter that basically protects your lens, but after a few years you will know that it was a good investment.

      I use this for my Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8 lens.Yes, it does protect the lens, but the glare can be quite noticeable depending on the angle of the light sources. This filter apparently cost more than other filters on the market, but from what I have read, it reduces glare, but that's just not true. My other cheap filters offers the same protection and this "expensive" filter doesn't really reduce the glare more than the cheap filters I have used. I would purchase the cheaper 77mm clear filter and not buy this one.

          Good haze UV filter. I use this filter on the Canon 100-400 L II lens. It has worked great, my photos have been very sharp. So far I am pleased and have no negative remarks about this product. I use it outdoors for mostly wildlife photography.

            Comments about Hoya 77mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter:

            I think it's always a good idea to have a haze or skylight filter on every lens for two reasons. They remove excessive blue from images and protect the lens. I bought this filter a week ago and it already saved a $ lens. When out photographing in the woods last weekend, I slipped in some mud and fell. This filter wound up covered with mud, but the lens itself was unscathed. Optically, it's performance is excellent. I highly recommend it!

                    It works fine. The threads on filter are good, easy to attach to lens.

                    I feel it is a good idea to purchase a Haze or UV filter to protect the front element of the lens. Yes, the filters are not inexpensive but it is better to have that protection on your "expensive lens."

                      This is used on my 15-50mm lens. It protects the lens and also really helps with the UV Haze in the daytime and the lights at night. I use the Hoya filter on all my lenses.

                            I use Hoya filters on all my lenses. Thanks to this practice, I didn't completely damage one of my L series lenses when it fell out of my pocket during a shoot and on to a gravel road. The filter took the hit and saved the precious lens glass underneath. Hoya filters are durable and well worth the money.

                                      I put one on all my lens as a protector. You never know when you might drop a lens and the filter takes the lick not the lens. The attached pis is an good example. After I unscrewed the filter, dusted off the glass I put another filter on and was shooting the next day.
