Product Highlights
  • Absorbs Ultraviolet Light
  • Multi-Coated
  • General Protective Filter
  • Aluminum Frame
  • Optical Glass

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.

                                I mainly bought this product to protect the glass on my Voigtlander 50mm f/1.1 lens from any damage. I use this lens everyday and don't want to keep checking if the lens cap is on the lens. By putting this 58mm UV filter on the lens, I have peace of mind that the glass is protected.

                                        this filter is perfect for my new lens and I wouldn't use the lens without it

                                        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.

                                              There is really only one thing to say, and that is that I purchase a HOYA UV filter for every lens I own. The HOYA UV filter protects the expensive optics and reduces glare.

                                                I use this filter as a lens protector, and because it multi-coated, it doesn't contribute to internal optical reflections.

                                                  This was purchased for lens protection, which is my normal practice upon each lens purchase. It does the job without image quality reduction..
