The Hoya 77mm Ultraviolet UV(0) Super Multi-Coated (S-HMC) Glass Haze Filter is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

Hoya's high transmission Super-Multi-Coating minimizes reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

This outstanding filter offers revolutionary performance in light transmission and color balance. 12 layers of Super Multicoating are applied to the surfaces of the Skylight 1B and UV(0) models, which produces an average transmission of 99.7%.

Coupled with maximum surface precision, this allows increased resistance to flare and stunning images can be recorded at wide apertures without compromising the performance of your lenses.

If desired it can be left on the lens at all times for protection
Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details
Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees

    I use this filter on my Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L lenses. Cleaning it requires only slightly more effort than involved in a cheaper filter, which is not multi-coated; however, the build quality, fit and flare elimination features make this filter well worth its price.

        Works well with my Canon 24-105mm lens. Screws on easily. The only problem was the smudge spots on the filter. It took awhile to clean the filter that I would have expected to have been free of any smudge marks from the factory packaging.

                      The filter is great with my 24-70 f2.8. Since I spent so much on the lens it made sense to get a good filter for it and Hoya delivers great quality as always for a reasonable price.

                            I bought this 77mm UV filter to protect my AF Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8 D lens because (a) it's highly recommended (as of Dec. 2013) by ken rockwell and (b) it's a good price (50-some bucks). I used to have a 75-dollar Promaster UV filter on the lens but the filter shattered when my camera bag dropped 3 feet onto pavement. The lens glass came away unscratched so now I'm a huge believer in protective filters.

                              I use this as a lens protector for a Canon 10-22 lens and it does the job. No vignetting at 10mm, very little lens flare even when shooting directly into the sun.

                                  When buying a high-end lens, you want to protect that investment. This filter will do just that--put it on the front of your lens and never take it off. Image quality stays great while you have something to take the worst of your abuse off the lens.

                                  And, while not cheap, it's a lot cheaper to replace this than that beautiful lens.

                                    I own several hoya filters and after my last purchase was an expensive carl zeiss filter and am not impressed, this is a great piece of glass clears things up and doesn't add any vigneting

                                        I have this filter mounted on my 70-200, and it works great. It helps cut down on flare somewhat, and gives me the peace of mind that if I bump the front of my lens, it won't get damaged.

                                                      it comes in with two spots that defective. something like the coating not fully spread evenly. this is the last one i will buy from Hoya. was thinking for return, but the cost of shipping make it unwise.

                                                              I've been using Hoya S-HMC filters as lens protectors for years. Very efficient multi-coating. Great glass. Aluminum mounting ring will deform upon impact and save your lens - unlike brass-mounted filters.
