Hoya XHD52UV overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 52mm HD UV 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. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections while providing over 99.35% light transmission, eight layers of anti-reflection coatings are applied to the glass. These coatings offer a high degree of protection to the filter substrate and helps it to stay clean for longer than uncoated filters. The coating formula associated with HD UV filters also promotes effective cleaning with regard to water, oil, and stains.

Constructed from chemically-hardened optical glass, the Hoya 52mm HD UV Filter offers enhanced resistance to scratches while providing clarity and color fidelity. It also features a thin, lightweight, aluminum-alloy filter ring to minimize the potential for vignetting.

This UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Such filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your front lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

    Hoya XHD52UV reviews

    52mm HD UV Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UV filter - maybe the best so far I've tried a lot of UV filters: Nikon L37C, Hoya sHMC, Heliopan SH-PMC, B+W MRC, Leica and Zeiss. They are all superb filters. However, Nikon no longer makes the L37C that was my staple. In night time tests, I found that the L37c produced some ghosting, but that the Hoya sHMC had the minimum amount of ghosting. The only German filter in this test was the B+W MRC, which was intermediate between the Nikon and Hoya sHMC. So, for a while I used the Hoya super HMC on all of my new Nikkors. The only problem with the sHMC Hoya is that they can be hard to clean. The coating has a tooth to it that seems to attract grease with contact. The heliopans behave similarly. The tooth makes it harder to clean using lens paper. I usually have to resort to a microfiber cloth for cleaning. I bought this new Hoya filter basically to protect the front element of my Voigtlander 15mm 4.5 in M mount. This super wide angle benefits from having no filter at all, or the thinnest glass to prevent problems with refraction of edge rays. Not only do the new HD glass filters have thin glass, they also have a very easy to clean coating. The amount of light reflecting off the filter when viewed obliquely is about the same as the heliopan SH-PMC or B+W filters, which is to say almost none. The filter ring is nice, solid, and anodized in matte black. It spins on and off without binding. As with all Hoya filters, they come out of the box spotless. You don't have to clean the filter first before mounting on the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal Clear These filters are so amazingly clear your not sure there is even any glass in betweeen the black ring. They also do a great job of repelling fingerprints. My biggest problems with filters is trying to get that one speck of whatever off my lens, never having a cloth or lens pen when i need it I will of course use my finger. With these filters it doesn't matter I cannot leave a smudge or a fingerprint. + According to others they are very difficult to break, I have been very careful with mine so can't really comment on this. Either way, so far these filters deliver.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hoya 52mm Ultraviolet UV Haze HD Filter Nice quality lens filter to work with my HD camcorder. This filter solves two problems one was lens protection, second was giving something for the Hama hood to clamp on to. The install looks clean and professional. Cost is about the only thing is not so great for average consumer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using with Canon 10x42 L IS Binos I got these for protection of the front lenses of my Canon 10x42 L IS Binoculars. They fit well and have excellent transparency and very low reflection of stray light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the MOney extremely high quality glass. Makes me feel much better taking off a filter and cleaning it rather than cleaning the glass on an expensive lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter Really like the density of this filter, I shoot a Nikon D7000 so I don't need the UV haze protection but I really like the reassurance of this high strength filter protecting my glass. The image quality of this filter is also great and I have noticed no reduction in image quality with my 35mm f/1.8 Nikkor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality item and lens protected Very nice UV filter that fits the Fuji XE1 perfectly. This filter is coated and unlike a cheaper version I tried, with this Hoya I am not seeing any flare or artifacts in my images caused by reflections. I don't always use filters BUT some places such as the beach present lens hazards (blowing sand etc.).
