This B&H Kit includes the Hoya 86mm Ultraviolet UV(0) Haze Multi-Coated Glass Filter and the Hoya 86mm Circular Polarizer Glass Filter. The UV filter in this kit is able to reduce the bluish cast of daylight and provide a layer of protection for a lens's front element. The circular polarizer filter can be used to remove unwanted reflections from surfaces such as water or glass while increasing color saturation.

The Hoya 86mm Ultraviolet UV(0) Haze Multi-Coated Glass Filter is a general use, clear filter designed to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. Aside from the reduction of unwanted blue casts, no additional coloration or contrast is created, and adjustments to exposure are not required while using this filter. This filter is multicoated to help reduce flare and improve light transmission.

The Hoya 86mm Circular Polarizer Glass Filter reduces exposure by 1.6 to 2 stops and helps to eliminate reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.
