The Hoya 58mm alpha MC UV 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 alpha UV filters are multi-coated for reducing flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface. As a result, a higher light transmission of approximately 96% is possible, providing you with additional contrast and high color fidelity.

The alpha filters are constructed from optical glass and a precision milled aluminum frame.

      I have taken professional photos for over 40 years and now I am retired. What is interesting is that I take more photos now than ever before. Grandkids are great subjects. I have always used filters for protection of my lenses under trying conditions. I specialize in river and brook photography, slow shutter speeds on a tripod, usually wide angle lenses close to the water. I also climb a lot and leave my camera on a strap around my neck. Photographing grandkids in and around pool. Under these conditions I always use a filter. Also, under haze conditions it usually intensifies with long lenses. I will use a haze filter to help cut it. If I am shooting portraits I have never used a filter. I put a filter on my 85mm 1.4 Sony for protection and keeping the dust off the large front element but when I shoot portraits I remove it. I am an old timer and feel my shots are sharper and more pure without a filter. But filters do protect your lens from damage and dust. I like Hoya filters because you get a lot for your dollar. Especially the new multi-coated ones. I have over the years dropped lenses on concrete and rocks, and yes, I has cracked the filter and not the front element. I have also bent the heck out of metal lens hoods. The new plastic ones are better but they do not absorb the shock as much as the metal ones, metal bends, plastic makes the lens bounce more. So, filter for protection and no filter when your safe and want precise results.

      On a windy day, this filter was subjected to spray from a fountain. I attempted to clean it with a microfiber cloth, and could never get it clean! I couldn't clean off WATER from this filter and ended up having to trash it the first time it was used. That's not such a great value. My B+H filter, which was also covered in water droplets, cleaned easily.

                    Used for protecting a great 85mm Canon lens. Not really expensive, but I'd rather lose a filter than a lens. It mounted snugly, appears free from distortion. Great value.

                            Replacing my original UV filter. My Canon lens fell out of my think tank harness pouch and shattered my filter and lens cap. I am so glad this was on my lens. This new filter is replacing the damaged one. Works just fine.

                                        I purchased this UV filter for my Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens. It's nice and durable. I see a few people who don't attach filters to their fixed focal length lenses but I have the tendency to do so simply for the extra protection especially living in New York. You never know what you're camera might bang into on the city streets.

                                          Will be used as a lens protector/UV filter on my 50mm f1.4.

                                          Least to install and fits like factory. Helps protect and keep lense clean. Definitely will buy more as I get more lenses instead of switching between the lenses every time.
