The 55mm 98-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. Resistance coating improves the scratch resistance of the glass, and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

 

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allows you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-Coating
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top Knurling
Top knurling offers a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

    55mm 98-UVAT UV Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sigma 85 Art Equipped on my Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art, and it performs almost the same as other UV filters that I have (Hoya HMC Super UV(0), Formatt Hitech Firecrest UV MC Superslim). There is a very slight loss in image quality at the pixel-peeping level ( this is very common on all filters of any kind inserted on your lens) although unnoticeable. Light transmission seems ok, I did not notice any difference of slowing of shutter speed when shooting Aperture priority mode in low light.� Although, this is my first filter made in China and it is not known for best in making glass filters and lenses but for the price at 86mm, I am satisfied with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works There isn't much you can say about a UV filter.� This fits my Canon lens perfectly.� I always buy a UV filter for my lens as it protects the lens not only from UV rays but also any possible scratches I may get will walking through forests and brush.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is, what it is. UVAT filter is manly to protect the outer lens. However, I did a test with and without the UVAT lens to see if there is any difference. Moderate improvement with the lens versus without. Like I said, manly for lens protection.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Filter This filter has so far worked well,� I'm glad that it seems to let in lot's of light, is easy to clean, and has a very low amount of dust build-up due to static electricity. A very nice filter for the price!
