      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 bought this filter to protect my 400 L series lens because I'm in brush a lot photographing deer. It fits well and does not seem to cause any distortion or flare.

                                      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.

                                          I have been using this filter with my Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 and the quality of my images are excellent! I would highly recommend this filter to my friends and colleagues

                                            I mounted this filter on my Nikkor 28-300 lens. This filter is a nice density with great light penetration. Provided some great Bokeh shots at 300mm. This filter not only gives you the confidence your expensive lens is protected but also that it will not affect your compositions.

                                              good filter. i don't really know if this is much different than the S-HMC . It said 8 layer but i'm not sure it's 8 on each side ( 16 total ) or they just mean 4 layer on each side. I'm confuse . The S-hmc have 12 layer

                                                It's very great!!!

                                                Better than you think.

                                                24-70mm is very good as it used to.
