"Love it...Nice UV...the lens are really good, but you need a good filter to get the best of your lens... guys I really recommend these filter... I am a wedding photographer and is amazing the quality that I get with these filters....Two immediate benefits to this newly recommended filter would be that it was less expensive (by almost half) than the B&W 77mm thin model AND I would be able to use my normal lens cap because the filter was threaded."See more

"I like...Enjoy !...I am using this uv filter to protect my lens works great and have saved my butt a couple of times I shoot skater boarders and one time a board got away from the person I was shooting and cracked my uv but not my lens or scratched it thanks good L lens are not cheap...I know some people don't like filters because it deteriorates image quality, but I have never noticed any deterioration and I feel much more at easy with a realitvely cheap filter protecting my expensive lens."See more

"Good buy...Love it....Ok had got a Bower kit on @ pfft and it stunk so tried a Tiffen UV and it works great no double vision or blurryness so now I just need to save up and get the Tiffen Ultra CPL on BHphotovideo and it will be cool I am using it on a Fujifilm finepix HS20 and I love the fact it's made in the USA...The quality was really evident, glass was crystal clear perfect and the mounting rings just exuded precision, I could tell when I installed the filter that the threads on there were just perfect."See more

"Love it....good buy...I am very happy with this filter for two reasons... one I love having the added insurance this gives on my lens which is way more money than the $ bucks spent on this and two it just does what it says, Filters out the UV's and if you don't know why that is good I recommend you read up on it but it really just makes the colors you want come through....I've honestly only used the filter one day, but I took a lot of pictures with the filter on and off, and looking at them on my computer, I can't really tell a difference."See more

"Nice fit...So good....Use the filter for protection against my lens when I am hiking so I don't have to take my lens cap on and off every time I want to take a shot....Works excellent on my canon 17-40mm f/4L... I though I might need a thin filter but this one is not visible at all in my wide angle shots."See more

"Good buy...Love it!...Well, I had several older Hoya HMC filters kicking around, and comparing these filters to the Canon filters, I could not believe the difference in how much less surface reflections could be seen (or actually, not seen) in the Hoya filters....I typically use a polarizer filter instead of this one for outdoor shots, but I am just learning, and may find I use this one more and more."See more

"V good...love it...I learned from photographer Scott Kelby that the B+W filters were some of the highest quality and that, if I wanted good protection from possible damage without distortion/ill affect, that the B+W coated filter would be the best....Although many people dont like the filter on an expensive lens saying it would ruin the quality of the photo, I am defntly a person that dont see that way... I cannot see any difference between having the filter on or off and I for sure feel a lot better with it on to protect my expensive peace o glass."See more

"Good buy...Hoya fan...I have another Hoya filter (different size for a different lens) that doesn't seem to be an issue, but for some reason the lens I keep this filter on doesn't seem to fit as well as it should....I love all the glass hoya makes I have yet to get a bad piece and this latest one when I pulled it out of the package I had to double take because I thought the glass was missing it was so clear!"See more

Multicoated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.
"Love it...Not bad...Though I am not yet at a place where I fully understand when I NEED to use this, I am very happy with the results when I decide to use it... If nothing else, this filter is a cheap method to protect the lens when I have the camera mounted outside the car for video capture....I really only bought this filter to keep my 50mm 1.8 lens a bit safer, it attached effortlessly and had done exactly what I wanted it to this far, one minor issue is that the canon lens cap doesn't secure all that well onside the filter threads, still grips and connects, just could be a bit better I suppose."See more

Simply mount the filter on your lens, set it to "Min" density then frame and focus. Care must be taken with focusing at heavier densities to make sure focus is accurate. However, if it isn't, switch to manual focus and rotate to the desired degree of filtration.
For example, if your standard exposure without the filter is 1/500 @ f/8 and you then set the filter to "Min", you change the shutter speed to 1/125 at the same aperture - thereby losing 2 stops of speed while gaining a hint of "blur" in the image. If that's not enough filtration, continue rotating the filter until you reach the shutter speed you desire. Using the above example, you can even get down to 1/2 second @ f/8 (8 stops). It should be noted that the calibration marks on the filter ring are to be used only for reference and should not be regarded as accurate settings for specific densities.
A Neutral Density filter is used to create some unusual special effects such as capturing the "blur" of the rippling water of a waterfall or the swirling effect of city traffic. Since it allows the use of slower shutter speeds in bright light, it becomes possible to create these special effects that would normally not be possible to capture without the filter. And, since it can also help to control your depth of field, it permits you to shoot at wider apertures. Ultimately, its value is in helping to prevent bright, overly washed out images shot in bright light.
The ColorCore process allows Tiffen to control the color and density of their filters, and the characteristics of special effects filters with much greater accuracy than typical dyed-in-the-mass filters, which usually exhibit color and density variations. In this way, Tiffen can better control the various densities of their filters and thereby create more exact degrees of filtration.
"OH WOW...love it...By using this product with my Rokinon DS line of lens I got to say the filter work great l, just don't close it to the maximum or you will get a little be of vignette, the The color chiefs as minimum, lastly I like the fact that I don't have to be changing filter I mount this variable version and just have to use it like if is my aperture ring....I also love that the filter comes in a signature Tiffen filter pouch.So far the only things that aren't great about it, are also the same things that aren't great about other variable ND filters."See more

"Love it...good buy...Since I bought this primarily for protection of the lens, I saw no reason to go nuts on a filter that will be more than likely off the lens during actual use anyway....I haven't done any real testing of image quality, but I notice no degradation caused by the filter so I'm happy with it."See more

"Nice UV...love it...My experience with filters is that the clarity of an object and the amount of flare is generally determined by the lens itself so I can't say anything about how this affects image quality and so I definatley wouldnt recommend getting the MRC (this is the better coat) unless your a pro and care about such things, especially in a large filter size....I have not had any problems with the 1st one, yet I bought another Co's filter for another lens - and it cracked while I was putting the lens cover on!"See more

"The best...Worth it...Having spent $400 on the Canon mid level nifty fifty, I thought spending a fewextra dollars on the B & W 58mm MRC uv filter would be a good idea given theoverwhelmingly positive reviews I have seen on @and B & H. I'm glad I did!This filter oozes quality from the hefty feel to the silky smooth brass threads thatscrew on effortlessly!...I purchase this filter for protection since I knew I would be in a part of the world that has frequent typhoons and high wind (Taiwan)."See more

"Good UV...I liked...It also came in a nice hard plastic case that I keep my circular polarizing filter in and it feels very sturdy so I don't mind chucking it in my back pocket in case I might need it without worrying about what will happen if I sit on it....I just bought this filter for my Canon 200 lens and I have to say I am very pleased with the quality considering it's not the most expensive filter."See more

"On time...Best UV...This will be my birding lens and I need the lens to be distortion free and allow max light to enter, since I will be using TC to increase the distance, I may have to work under low light fast shutter speed conditions so is paramount to get a good UV filter that can protect the lens but not degrade the light....Out of curiosity, I decided to directly compare the new UV-Haze filters with existing stock of older Calumet, Hoya and Tiffen UV-Haze filters across my current complement of prime and zoom lenses, excepting a few lenses having front elements larger than the new B+W filters or unable to accommodate front filters."See more

"Good UV...The Best...I have always use the B+W filters as they provides the best filters to protect all my different lens, from 58mm, 72mm, to 77mm....On previous lenses I've gone with the Hoya Filters (which are indeed great) but when I unpacked and tried this I immediately realized I would have problem going back to the Hoya filters."See more

If you're out walking on a lovely day - in the mountains or at the beach - and you want to get a fabulous shot of a cloud-filled sky or make the water seem more saturated, then a polarizer is the way to go. This filter is the best way to make the clouds stand out, increase or decrease the saturation of the ocean or increase or decrease the reflection off the water. You can also use this filter when shooting into glass or windows since it will, again, either increase or decrease reflections.
If you're shooting black and white and want to simulate a threatening storm, try throwing on a #25 Red filter. The vista will take on the appearance of an imminent, ominous storm.
Along with a UV or Skylight Filter, a polarizing filter should be a part of everyone's gear bag. It can turn a run-of-the-mill image into a stunning, creative photo by increasing color saturation.
"It's OK...It work...I like it, as far a people saying once the filter is on its tough to turn off, I think there might be some over tightening issues as I have not experienced any such problems yet....i've been shooting for years, and until I photographed a city through tinted car windows, I didn't realize how useful a filter like this could be!"See more

"Good UV...The best...I use it on my 100-400 lens for protection so I can quickly clean the filter rather than the lens glass....I use this filter mainly to protect the front element of one of my zoom lenses; however, tests have shown that this is one of the few so-called haze or UV filters that actually block some UV light from reaching the camera's sensor."See more

"Love it...Good buy...The filter took salty air like a champ, and never distorted the images I got, and I feel a lot more comfortable cleaning a filter than trying to clean my lens after every use!...The filter may cause some color casting when shooting against sunlight but usually in that case I just take the filter off, and that's not a biggie considering that it keeps my lens safe and does it's job very well."See more

"Worth it...Gin Clear...When I switched to 100% studio photography in 2002, I switched to Nikon Clear filters instead of the UV and Skylight filters to which I had become accustom....I have heard rumors that NC filters are more prone to ghosting but I have not run into that issue even shooting near or on axis of my light sources so I do not know if that is a property of Nikon's NC or others."See more
