This is a great filter

Comments about Hoya 77mm Ultraviolet UV Haze HD (High Density) Digital Filter:

I often take photographs in a dusty environment and I consider the UV filter to be cheap insurance to protect the fore-optic of my lenses. I had previously purchased an off-brand UV filter (not from B&H) and when I took a few photographs with a shallow depth of field I noticed a series of repeating light-gray/dark-gray lines running through the soft focus portions of the image. After performing a few test & convincing myself that the lines were caused by the filter. After I purchased the Hoya HD and I am happy to report that I no longer have the optical aberrations. Bottom line, my $2000 lens is protected and my pictures are sharp.

Comments about Hoya 77mm Ultraviolet UV Haze HD (High Density) Digital Filter:

I use the Hoya HD on all my lenses.
My sister borrowed my camera, and dropped it lens down 4+ feet to a tile/concrete floor. The filter ring bent but nothing broke. Camera & lens are fine. I did replace the filter, but still have it as a backup.
Very well made, clean easily and now tested tough.
I use the Hoya HD polarizer & ND filters too.

      Comments about Hoya 77mm Ultraviolet UV Haze HD (High Density) Digital Filter:

      I started out using UV filters more so for lens protection, rather than improving my image quality. However, I notice a difference when using this filter. A UV filter is a good, everyday filter to have, and I leave mine on all my lenses. It also works well with other filters.

      Eventually you forget it's there.

          Good quality glass used to protect my lens. Fairly tough; so far dust does not stick to it. Very pleased with this product.

              All outdoor, and event Photographers should use this filter. It has excellent optics and 4X the strength of normal filters. You paid a lot for that good glass, you need to protect it.

                        While there is a lot of disagreement re: filters to protect lenses, I believe that spending a little more for a good filter is the way to go in order to have a little insurance for a expensive lens. This HD filter has not disappointed me.

                                    I've read and heard all the reasons to keep and not to keep a UV filter on your lenses. I've gone for the "not to", but have finally read enough good reviews by both users and pros about this Hoya lens so I finally got one for each of my lenses. I like it and as the subject line says, go Hoya or don't use a filter.

                                      I use UV filters on my more expensive lenses as protetion for the front element, nothing more. I saw several negative reviews online complaining that these filters do not provide any benefit in haze. That is correct! They may be poorly named, being basically just clear glass. If you want added protection for an expensive lens, put a good quality UV filter (multicoated with high light transmission) on the front and leave it there, but do not expect any color correction.
