    49mm Multi-Coated (MC) Protector Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saved my lens. This is a UV filter that I use to protect my lens' front element. The primary intention is so I can clean it with impunity and abuse it (i.e. wipe it off with a shirt) when necessary. As with any filter, it works fine in that capacity. This small (49mm) filter has a substantial feel to it, more so than other 49mm filters I've had. The frame is specified as being aluminum. The machine work and finish is very good. The Zeiss T* coating works fine, but is not better than the Hoya S-HMC, nor even the Sigma anti-flare coating. In my casual testing shooting into a lamp, the Zeiss T* coating as realized on this filter manifests the most obvious ghosting amongst these three. It is better than Hoya HMC, though, and certainly better than uncoated filters, although it better be considering its price. I did not test its optical qualities (resolution), as I assumed that its effect on the image is comparable to other quality filters: negligible. It is Zeiss, after all. This filter was destroyed a week ago in the course of a photo shoot at a street party. I was in the course of changing a lens (with this filter on) when I was bumped, and I dropped my lens. I flailed to try to catch it (good reflexes), but missed (bad hand-eye) and managed to propel the lens further away before it landed on the unyielding concrete. Gah. To my surprise, the filter took the brunt of the impact. It saved the lens. Of course, luck had as much to do with how the lens landed for the initial, hardest impact... but without the filter there and the destruction thereof to dissipate the energy, the lens would've surely been destroyed. This also revealed why the small filter semed so relatively substantial: the Zeiss filter glass is apparently quite thick. I have ordered the identical filter to replace it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low flare. Difficult to clean. Compared to generic nano-coating, B+W MRC and Hoya SHMC, the T* actually seems to flare less than the competition. With a thumbprint test, the T* filter is a little bit tougher to clean compared to MRC. It's also not a hydrophobic coating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality and THIN This Sony 49 mm protector filter is a very high quality lens protector. It is obviously well made, but the greatest feature is how thin it is. I put it on my Sony zoom lens and was easily able to continue to use the sun shade. The little extra cost of this filter is well worth it because of both the quality of manufacture and the ease of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Protection Shields that barefaced f/2 Zeiss. It doesn't seem to be prone to glare reflection. Bottom line: Makes me feel better about the lens being protected from scratches, and wayward fingerprints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protect Your Lens A clear or UV filter is a must for all your lenses. I learned the hard way when I scratched the front element of an expensive Zeiss lens. The cost in minimal for the protection it gives.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed Item Does what it is supposed to - protects the lens. The Sony conversion lenses don't fit over with this on the 16mm lens. Pain to have to take it on and off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from must have This accessory is essential. For an extremely low cost, it provides excellent protection against a scratched lens - which would be catastrophic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from T* Carl Zeiss coated Received mine today. It is in fact T* Carl Zeiss coated and this is printed on the filter with a Zeiss blue mark.
