High quality filter, reasonable price

Does what I want -- namely, protects my objective lens from abrasion -- without costing a fortune. I have one of these on my 500mm 5.6f Nikon lens and one on my Kowa 883. With both devices, I'm often hiking around through thick foliage, etc. and I don't want to be futzing with lens caps. This filter gives me piece of mind that my main investment is safe from scrapes and scratches without sacrificing optical quality. And at the same time, if something happens to this UV filter, I can just get another one without having to shell out too much cash.

DON'T BUY for CANON 28-70mm

I got this for my RF 800 f11 - great value for the money. In addition to the value is the grip for the filter I wish all filters had thes knobs.

Glass is good. Does not affect pictures. But there were difficulties with the installation of the filter.

Thread pitch is off on my 39mm filter!

This filter does not fit on any of my 39mm filter thread lenses - any of my Leica lenses or my Fujifilm 27mm. The thread pitch is off so if you try to attach it and tighten it, you may damage your lens. Never experienced this before with any other filter brand. Not recommended.

question

using such, can also a same size shade be screwed to the filter ?
Asked by: pat h.
Yes, for this filter as with most filters except the thin profile filters, a thread is machined on the outer ring to add another filter or in your case a lens hood. Be aware, this is a polarizing filter, so the front ring where the shade would be attached must turn to align the polarizing filter element.
