Hoya's great multicoating makes another great filter. I was having some really bad ghosting with light points with my old filter, but when I installed this Hoya UV Haze NXT filter, those problems all but disappeared. It always pays to get a good multi-coated filter to put in front of a good mult-coated lens like a Pentax lens. Don't just rely on the Multi-coating of the lens you are using, put a good multi-coated filter in front of it, even if the filter is for damage protection.

The review headline pretty much sums it up. High quality coatings provides good light transmission plus mounted in a metal frame.

              Hoya HMC (Multi Coated) UV filters are the best quality while also being affordable in comparison to other brands. I recommend anyone who would like protection for their valuable lenses to use Hoya as first choice.

                  Comments about Hoya 49mm UV Haze NXT HMC Filter:

                  I have no experience with this filter. However, some of my more knowledgeable friends told me two things: (1) it is generally better NOT to put any more filters in front of a good lens unless it is absolutely necessary; and (2) Hoya glass, filters & lenses are quite good and very reliable and rugged. With this in mind, I decided not to use both a UV filter and a polarizer filter for outdoor and brightly lit indoor photography (which is 95% of where I shoot. Instead I will use a good polarizer to protect my Sony lens and to reduce glare.

                          -Lens cap closes fine with the filter on
                          -I have had this filter for only a short time, but it looks like it would last

                                There is not too much you can say about a UV filter. It should be clear in the visible spectrum and remove UV. This filter does that, and it is well-made.

                                    It's a filter. Screws into my lens. Protects it from damage. Looks nice.

                                      Purchased at the same time as my sony 55-210mm lens for lens protection. Fits snuggly and is economical.
