Hoya A52UVC Overview

  • 1Description

The Hoya 52mm Ultraviolet UV (C) Haze Filter is a wise initial investment. It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. The "C" on the filter ring designates Hoya's thinner design for this filter. This filter has its UV properties in the multi-coating. The result is an average light transmission of over 97% giving sharp contrast and well balanced color. Hoya HMC filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of today's multicoated digital lenses.

Multicoated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

Good choice for digital photography
If desired it can be left on the lens at all times for protection
Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details
Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees

    Hoya A52UVC Reviews

    52mm Ultraviolet UV (C) Haze Multicoated Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 427.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi layer coating VERY effective A UV filter to protect the lens surface has been a normal practice of mine for years. Mu current Canon camcorders, tho, have a much pronounced diamond shaped internal reflection when pointed anywhere in the direction of the sun. Hoods block the Instant AF sensor so I tried this multi layer coated filter. The internal reflections are vastly reduced and only just barely visible when pointed directly at the sun. I will still continue using a hood in most cases even with multi layer coated filters but this gives me another option when the IAF mode is needed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoya Filters Are Unbeatable Value When I purchased my first several Canon EOS lenses, I thought I'd stay loyal and purchase Canon filters also. Well, I had several older Hoya HMC filters kicking around, and comparing these filters to the Canon filters, I could not believe the difference in how much less surface reflections could be seen (or actually, not seen) in the Hoya filters. So I purchased new Hoya HMC filters to replace the Canon filters. The Hoya metal mounts are equal to or better in quality, and the glass and anti-reflection coatings are superb.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely Better than Tiffen I have had Tiffen filters in my lenses for a number of years. Recently I upgraded to a Nikon D5100 and noticed lot more noise in my indoor pictures. I also had to increase sharpness of pictures in post processing. I read some reviews about how the quality of the filters can affect the pictures. So, decided to try out this highly rated filter. True to the reviews, I could see visible difference in my pictures - they are much sharper and with less noise. I did notice a difference in color (skin tone particularly) with this Hoya filter and without any filter. I have used it only for a short period. Will post an update after a few months. But, so far, very happy with the purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultraviolet UV Haze Multicoated Filter I use if for my 50mm mkii f1.8 to reduce reflections and haze specially at night.I got this to replaced a non-coated filter. When using at night, e.g. shooting city lights, I get reflections with the filter, but did not notice haze so far. However, it is better than the non-coated filter, which left stronger reflections. I should note that the reflections exist (but are dimmer) even without the filter. It is a problem that the lens has. It seems durable. Once I dropped it on the street, but neither the glass nor the frame got damaged, except for a little scratch on the frame. I would recommend it. It is as cheap as a non-coated filter, and is better than a non-coated one!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need to check the filter carefully I purchase this filter from B&H and believe this is a better filter than the standard UV(0). However, the first one I got has many spots on the surface that can not be clean off. B&H got excellent customer service that allows me exchange to another one with out any issue. The second one I got still have a tiny spot on the outer rim of the filter. Fortunately that did not impact the photo shot. Just make sure you double check the lens surface to ensure there is no reflecting spots. You had to see it under the light with 45 degree angles while moving back and forth. You will not see the spots if you look directly ahead. When you do the out door shot and the light hits the filter on the angle you will see the spots on the photo. I bought 2 of the basic UV(0) have no issue at all. Problems Encountered: Just need to make sure not manufacture defected with coating. Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Hoya 52mm UV(0) basic

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not bad I choose this filter for the price and the reputation that the Hoya name carries. The filter overall seems to be of decent quality, though the opportunity has not yet presented itself to test its durability (and hopefully never will). The glass is clear, without any flaws, protecting my lens while not interfering with shots. Please note that this filter is not the Hoya that is typically made in Japan, but rather the Philippines if that makes any difference to you. It was extremely easy to place on my lens and I am confident it will not wiggle or fall off. Overall a great value for the product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ho Hum I bought this on the roccomendation of teh clerk at B&H. I've also often heard the accepted wisdom that you should use a UV filter to protect your sensor, clean up UV haze and really just to keep crud from ever touching your lense. However, I find that this filter adds odd color highlights and lens flare from bright sources. I have taken a few photos were even a candle or table lamp threw a stange glare across the image. I'll keep the filter for walking around photos, but in more controlled environs and at night, it comes off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Filter Hoya makes great UV filters. I don't consider them to be as high of quality as B+W & Heliopan filters, but they cost much less. Expect very little impact, if any, on the image quality of your photos. Multi-coated filters are meant for use with digital cameras to further prevent glare, flare, and ghosting. I recommend them above their non-multi-coated counterparts. I shoot UV haze filters on all my lenses and consider them the easiest form of lens care and protection. This filter is attached to a Canon 50 f/1.8 II lens.

    Would this filter fit a Nikon Dx 35mm Lens?
    Asked by: Richard L.
    The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G Lens has a 52mm filter thread, so will be compatible with the 52mm Ultraviolet UV (C) Haze Multicoated Filter.

    What's the difference between Hoya's Ultraviolet UV (C) Haze Multicoated Filter, alpha MC UV Filter, and UV Haze NXT HMC Filter?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The UV(C) has the UV properties in the multi-coatings, while the rest of the Hoya UV lines have the UV properties in the glass.The Alpha series is essentially the bottom of the line for Hoya filters, while the NXT series would be considered middle of the line.
