The Hoya 55mm alpha MC UV Filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light. 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.

Hoya alpha UV filters are multi-coated for reducing flare, ghosting, and reflections on the filter surface. As a result, a higher light transmission of approximately 96% is possible, providing you with additional contrast and high color fidelity.

The alpha filters are constructed from optical glass and a precision milled aluminum frame.

    55mm alpha MC UV Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoya seem to be the best cost / quality filters I used to buy cheaper filters. Hoya MC filters seem to produce less flare / ghosting than other filters. a little pricier, but worth it. They seem a little hard to clean from fingerprints etc. But I'd rather have to clean a filter rather than risk scratching or removing the coating of camera lens. I always keep a protective UV filter on, except for portraiture in controlled environments. But when traveling, on the street, by the ocean, I always keep one of these on my lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, but the packaging was horrible Not much to write about the product. It's simple, and it works. It was in excellent condition. But it was put into a huge bubblewrap bag. This is something I am especially upset about because I do not have trash pickup, and it takes up too much room in my post office box. It's a huge headache. But the product is excellent, and was delivered timely. Please pay attention to the packaging! Don't use anything larger than you need. It is wasteful and bad for the environment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price for a basic essential I always install a UV or similar lens-protecting filter on every lens I buy, before I ever use it. One saved lens will cover the cost of every protecting filter I ever bought, many times over. So far, a filter has only saved one lens. But you probably know how expensive good lenses are.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit and service This 'filter/lens protector' fits perfectly [ be sure it is aligned 'straight' before screwing on tight ] that is invisible and accepts the lens cap like it wasn't even there! PERFECT... product offered by B&H .. and it showed up on time.. as always.� I found THE photo-source...........

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed... I purchased a new lens and needed the typical UV filter to put up in front to protect the objective and reduce glare in certain situations. Didn't want to spend a lot since the lens is not one of the expensive ones. So this was just what I needed.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I had to put it in the bag On vacation, surrounded by the most picturesque Mounts, and this filter had glare and spots and smudgyness. I absolutely can't get it clear. I'm not sure if I did something. I really don't know what happened. HOYA is supposed to be the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lens protectors This little Gem is on every lens I own and there are several. I have bought a lot of equipment from B&H and will continue to whenever I need to. This is just one of many things I cannot do without to maintain the protection my lenses need.
