The 62mm HMC Ultraviolet UV(C) Haze Filter from Hoya 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. The result is an average light transmission of over 97% giving sharp contrast and well balanced color. The heat-resistant tempered glass does not affect color balance while improving image quality and providing a stronger more resilient filter. HMC (Hoya Multi-Coated) filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of today's multi-coated digital lenses. The multi-coating minimizes reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting. The result is better light transmission and a clearer image.

A UV filter not only minimizes the bluish cast sometimes found under daylight conditions, but is also the best available protection against accidental damage to the front element of your lens. A lens that accidentally gets dropped on its front element while hiking can potentially be saved by purchasing this item. Some people refer to it as "cheap insurance". As a lens protector, it should be left on at all times.
Aside from that more-than-significant benefit, UV filters render your photos clearer, sharper and more contrasty. For those who enjoy outdoor photography, especially distant vistas, a UV filter can produce a more distinct and acceptable image by removing much of the blue tint normally associated with atmospheric haze.

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
Improved glass quality that promotes better light transmission; heat-resistant tempered glass

    62mm HMC Ultraviolet UV(C) Haze Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 113.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoya Saves the Day No one wants to see a quality lens damaged. Even though it is a simple UV filter, it can protect your expensive camera lens. The Hoya 62mm filter now resides on my Nikon D70's 18-200mm lens. Unfortunately, the last UV filter was retired after doing it's job - protecting the lens. In tight quarters, i was shooting an event photojournalist style. The action moved quickly, and when i turned to follow the action, the lens was extended just enough to catch the filter one of the steel posts in front of me. The filter broke and the force deformed the ring. It required a large, wide mouth pliers to remove it. It was a small price to pay, as it could have been the lens proper that was hit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Haze Yes, UV Maybe Overall the construction is simple, nice and short for mounting other filters, and rugid. In terms of eliminating haze, I find it does about a good a job as the human eye, which I think is good, but don't expect it to cut through air or be magical. In terms of fringing caused by UV, however, I'm not impressed. I don't really notice a benefit with it on. Bottom line: Excellent multicoating, which is great for making the filter invisible for when you don't truly need it. Ghosting and flaring are nominal, I think it does it's job with eliminating excess haze, but like I said, it doesn't seem to help with fringing. Also, it seems to get dirty fast...and I don't know if it's the multicoat or not, but it's hard for me to clean. Overall though, good, because the cons seem minor in application.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Questionable quality, durability I ordered the Hoya 62mm HMC UV(C) haze filter for a new lens, expecting it to be a much higher quality than the Tiffen UV filters I had fitted on two other lenses. I honestly cannot see any noticeable difference between the two filters, even though the Hoya UV filter cost me over twice what I paid for the Tiffen UV filter! What's even worse is that I have only had this filter for a month, and two small scratches have appeared on it already. I always have either the lens cap or the lens hood on this particular lens, and have used extreme care with the lens & filter. Under the circumstances, I fail to understand how it could become scratched, and question the quality & durability of this filter. By comparison, my Tiffen UV filters appear to be doing great, after several months of usage (in less than ideal conditions). Unfortunately, it looks as though I will have to purchase a replacement filter, but it won't be a Hoya!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serves the purpose I noticed a couple of tiny defects in the first filter I received and was using. B&H Customer Service was great, and replaced it without question! I honestly can't see a noticeable difference in most of the photos taken with the filter in place. Maybe that's because it is simply doing its job - in a very subtle way! Overall, I am probably taking acceptable photos in situations I wouldn't be able to without the UV filter in place. I agree completely with many other reviewers that it is worth buying this filter for the protection it offers your lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from hazing I use these filters mostly to protect my much more expensive lenses, but they have the added benefit of cutting glare, which this hoya does as advertised. I do all my shopping thru B&H because they're always the best price and crazy fast shipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Investment for protection Good investment for protection of your lens. Digital doesn't really need UV anymore and I have moved mostly to Hoya Pro1 Digital Clears or Nikon NC's. Still good to have and great protection for your lens.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Adds wonderful green flare effects After reading glaring reviews, I purchased this filter for my Sony CX900 HD camcorder. Upon attempting to use it at night, it became instantly apparent that something was wrong. I use this for backup as a breaking news camera, and when the lens is hit with police lights, red blue etc, it looks like it's fogged up or has fingerprint smudges all over the lens. Testing with common bright street lights produces large and readily apparent green flare and ghosting. Removing the filter eliminates these artifacts. While testing, I did notice that the flare would dance around the image as I manually held the filter to the front of the lens, or while it was being screwed down. It would seem this green flare is a result of light reflecting off of the front of the lens, and onto the back of the filter, which may not be properly coated? Regardless, looking through it the filter looks fine, but on the Sony at installed distance, the effects are horrific, it literally paints the entire screen green. I recommend you test your filter for this on your camera to make sure you and your lens are not affected by this optical issue.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems fine. Have used the filter for about 500 shots. No issues. Multicoating seems to control stray light very well. Already has a wee defect in the lens coating, but this I think was due to a little ding into concrete. You can't expect the coating to stand up to that. Most useful info I could give is that cleaning was a pain until I found the right technique: Half isopropyl alcohol and half sterile saline seems to work brilliantly, everything else was leaving stubborn streaks.
