Hoya XHD72PROTEC overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 72mm HD Protector Filter is a simple, clear filter with a 1x filter factor and is designed to provide general protection for your lens. This optically clear filter does not affect overall image quality while helping to prevent dust, scratches, moisture, and other substances from reaching or damaging your lens's front element. To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, eight layers of anti-reflection coatings are applied to each side. This total of 16 coatings offers 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 Protector filters also promotes effective cleaning with regard to water, oil, and stains.

Constructed from chemically-hardened optical glass, the Hoya 72mm HD Protector Filter's resistance to scratches is enhanced while providing clarity and color fidelity. It also features a thin, lightweight, aluminum-alloy filter ring to minimize the potential for vignetting.

    Hoya XHD72PROTEC reviews

    72mm HD Protector Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All my lenses are protected by Hoya HD I learned a hard lesson about the importance of protecting my lenses. I was using a popular inexpensive clear filter to protect one of my favorite NOT inexpensive lenses. This resulted in a repair that could have been avoided and lost time that cannot be replaced. Fact is, for less than 20$ more I wouldn't have lost money or time for this silly FREAK ACCIDENT.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid B+W filters feel a little more solid, mainly due to the weight of the brass but the Hoya feels very well constructed. My B+W MRC filter was good, but a bit of a dust/lint magnet. Hopefully, this Hoya won't be so much. So far, no issues with flare or ghosting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good protection filter - excellent value!! There are many filters out there, and I think this is one of the better ones. Especially for the money. Two equally most important qualities of a protection filter is (1) protect the front element (duh..) and be easy to clean. For these two attributes, this filter delivers in spades. I have really hard time getting anything to stick to this magic glass coating. And when it does stick, all it needs is either a rocket blower, a soft brush, or if something is really stuck on like hot sauce (don't ask), a wet lens wipe or some solution and lint free cloth. Usually it's just the rocket blower. In short, buy it - you won't regret it. I have not used the new HD3 filters, but I have HD2 and regular HD filters and honestly I do not see a difference. Save your money by getting this filter and buy a circular polarizer on top of this for what an HD3 filter would cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Economic alternative to UV filters Same hardened glass as their famous UV filters but cheaper. Modern dSLRs have in filtering coatings on the sensors so UV filters are largely unnecessary. I haven't done any extensive testing for color shift or sharpness reduction but haven't noticed any either shooting with the 77mm version on my Tamron 70-200 G2. Happy with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protection for any L Glass I always buy this specific filter for my Canon lenses to protect them. The only defect tis that is produces flare. Other than that there's no difference in what you use.......

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good filter, works as advertised. Good filter, works as advertised. The main perk about this filter is the glass element is sealed with the ring, so dust and water doesn't leak through to the front element.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save Your Lenses A similar Filter saved my 70mm-400mm when it was dropped when a friend passed it to me while I was standing on some rocks!!!No damage to the front element of the lens!!!
