I use this filter with an Olympus MFT 17mm f1,8 lens for asltrophotograpy. The filter does a great job in eliminating most of the light pollution emanating from sodium street lighting now prevalent in the so called dark triangle of France (no longer quite so dark). Perfect for suppression of single wavelength orange sodium lighting.

This filter is the good quality I expect from Hoya for the money. The buying experience from BH was excellent as always with fast delivery which why I almost always buy from BH Photo.

A good investment for landscape photographers

If you've already invested in a polarizer filter, you're probably a landscape photographer. If so, and you like to take advantage of fall colors, an enhancing filter will help you deliver stunning results. It really makes the red leaves pop. Don't buy this if you haven't bought a polarizer first. A polarizer is more important. This is a specialized filter. But if you have invested in a polarizer, this is a logical next step. Hoya's enhancing filter is good quality, and the B&H price is right.

I recently purchased the Hoya enhancing filter for taking Fall pictures, mostly of the changing foliage. Just as the name implies it increases the saturation of red and orange. I am considering using it with a polarizing filter.

question

I have a 55mm lense which takes a 52mm filter ring. my question is, is the threading universal? my camera lense is a Nikon but they don't have lots of filters for it so I am looking at other brands. if its universal and I can use other brands that would be great. second time asking question as it didn't seem to add my question yesterday. website is glitching. thank you
Asked by: carol d.
Yes, the threading is universal. Always remember to step UP not DOWN to avoid vignetting.

question

I have a Nikon lense which takes the 52mm size screw in filters. the lense is a 55mm. so I am looking at 52mm filters and step up rings. the question is, are the threads on this ring compatible with the rings on my Nikon? are thread sizes the same brand to brand? is it universal like mini usb charging adaptors for cell phones. since Nikon doesn't make many filters etc for its lenses I keep seeing all these from different brands and am curious if they are compatible. my lense is 18-55mm and I would love to enhance fall colours. thank you.

Filter threads are standard. If you have a 55mm lens, you need to get a larger filter size, and use a step up ring from your lens to the filter. If you use a smaller 52mm filter on a 55mm lens, you will have a large round black border around your entire picture because of the vignetting.
