Heliopan 740511 overview

  • 1Description

The Heliopan 40.5mm UV SH-PMC Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. No additional coloration or contrast is provided, allowing you to pair this filter with others. The UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

The SH-PMC multi-coating provides a total of 16 coatings, 8 per side, for significant reflection reduction (below 0.2%) as well as dust and moisture repellence for easier cleaning.

This Heliopan filter is constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. It features a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

    Heliopan 740511 reviews

    40.5mm UV SH-PMC Filter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent - thin - nice coating I purchased for use with my Leica M lenses and a very thin custom lens hood from japan. The hood had an internal set of 40.5mm threads. I wanted to minimize possibility of vignetting and make the lenses as compact (short) as possible. I wanted these filters to add protection to the front element. It was important to also minimize internal reflections and flare. This filter worked well on all my lenses from 28mm F2.8 on up. The coating is so transparent and effective that it often loots like there's no filter attached at all. The thinness of the filter allows it to mount very close to the lens, and its extension beyond the lens is minimize. This again reduces vignetting. The filter ring is matt black I'd like to think that this extra black element mounted inside the lens hood acts as an additional light baffle, but that may be wishful thinking. No matter what, it mounted well, fits in nicely, let's me use a compact and very light lens hood, adds some lens protection, and appears to minimize flare and reflection. It was pricey, but so are Leica M lenses. The Leica dealer informed me that Heliopan makes the filters Leica sells as their own. I have no complaints, image quality is excellent.
