Heliopan Protection SH-PMC Filter Reviews

cannot leave it on the lens

It's a very high quality filter. I bought it for Macro Elmar-M 1:4/90, but the irony is that I have to remove the filter to be able to put on the cap on the lens. The cap does not fit on the filter.

Lens protection and only protection

You will read many reviews that say you don't need a protection filter. I feel differently. I bought this Heliopan filter for its Schott glass (optically invisible) and its brass filter ring (jam prevention) and put it on a Nikon D500 kit lens (16-80mm f/2.8-4). If you are going to get the best DX camera and the best medium zoom lens for it, there is no reason to skimp on protecting your investment.

Great Quality

Product works as expected and holds shape for easy installation. Outer threads work just as good when adding polarizer / ND filters.

I only use Heliopan

I use this filter on a 24-70 2.8 lens that cost around $, and I wouldn't use anything other than Heliopan for my job.

This filter seems to do exactly what it was designed to do. It protects the front element on my lens with no degradation in picture quality. The craftsmanship is also second to none. It feels very well made.

It's perfect!

I wanted to get the best clear 82mm filter for my Sony 16-35mm GM lens. Even though I always used B+W for my cheaper lenses after doing some research I decided to go with Heliopan and wasn't disappointed. The build is great and the glass is super clear. I was concerned if it is going to vignette at 16mm or if I will be able to keep the hood on or not and I can confirm that everything fits and works great.

question

I understand this is a Slim Mount Design/Retains Front Threads . Can I put the 49mm snap on lens cap on the filter? This is for the Olympus OM 50 1.2 lens and lens cap.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. Since the Heliopan 49mm Protection Filter has front threads, it will be able to grip a standard snap-on/pinch lens cap.

question

Will this create vignetting at 16mm when put on Sony 16-35mm GM lens?
Asked by: Ilja
It is not unusual to experience vignetting when using ultra wide lenses.
