Chiaro Pro 67mm 98-UVAT UV Filter

The Pro 67mm 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.

Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 Reviews

Fantastic Lens

Sony has two 85 mm lenses prices miles apart. This f1.8 lens gives me perfect bokeh and is light. If you are on a budget, this one is a strong competitor to the GM lens. Images are exceptionally sharp.

Very nice lens

Replaced the kit lens for my A7C with this and am very satisfied. Very nice prime at a good price.

Amazing bang for your buck!

This lens is amazing! Very sharp and the bokeh is outstanding. I have not had an issue with it being f1.8. Autofocus is fast and accurate. It is a beast for portraits and tight video work. I do not regret getting this over the GM. Great lens!

Great Lens!

Love the boca on this lens and it's pretty lightweight. Great for all day shoots. A little bit tighter than I thought, but can be handy for portraits. I do want to pick up a 50 to use more consistently, but I will definitely keep this in my bag.

Perfect lens

This is my favorite lens so far for my new Sony A7rii. I love it for the clarity, price and ease of use. The lens is sharp, clear and a joy to work with. The lens kit is also a lovely bonus that I needed and am grateful for the bundle from B&H. I also want to say that the B&H website, app and store are awesome with a nice selection at great prices. Thank you B&H!
