    I bought one of these products for each of my Canon lenses for protection only. It is very clear, pretty heavy-duty, protects the end of your lens, and last but definitely not least, for an incredible price.

    Good protection at a good price.

    Seems sturdy and works well for keeping lenses protected. Does not appear to affect image quality much, if at all.

          Comments about Tiffen 58mm Clear Standard Coated Filter:

          good for protection, quality's not that great but its priced fair. The most frustrating thing though about this was how dirty the filter was when I opened the box. I spent a good 10 minutes making sure it was spotless but I have never received a lens filter that wasn't already in pristine condition. I guess you have to expect that at such a low price.

            This is a great, inexpensive lens protector. It's easy to use, and exactly as advertized. Essential gear for protecting your lenses -- it just doesn't make sense not to buy the clear standard filter. The Tiffen filter screwed-onto my Nikon lens beautifully. it's perfect.

                  No issues here, just screw it on, and forget it. Tiffen makes a good product, and much better than some other cheaper brands out there. Can't go wrong with these filters.

                            The 58mm Clear Filter from Tiffen is great protection for your lenses. The cost is minor in comparison to the damage that may be caused without it. You don't even know it's there and can clean it regularly without worrying about scratching the lens.

                                        As clear filters go, this one works quite well for the price. It threads easily and doesn't bind. There is no appreciable degradation in image quality under normal shooting conditions. It does seem to be more prone to ghosting when working against hard light than more expensive filters of this type. If this is a concern for you, I would recommend spending the $20-30 on a multi-coated filter.

                                                  This filter does the job just fine. If you want to have extra protection for your lens and want to save some $.... This will work. It's light and obviously not top quality but it does the job.

                                                  I bought one of these products for each of my Canon lenses for protection only. It is very clear, pretty heavy-duty, protects the end of your lens, and last but definitely not least, for an incredible price.

                                                    I love these. i have a few lenses that i use with my GF1 and I hate having to keep track of all of the lens caps. this totally protects the lens and leaves the camera ready to shoot.

                                                      The absolute best protection value is a clear filter over your valuable optics. Over several years I have seen these inexpensive filters protect and save expensive lenses from scratches and mud, dust & filth.
