The Hoya NXT HMC UV Multi Coated Slim Frame Glass Filter is a multi-purpose filter that is designed to optimize the photography experience of the digital SLR user. UV filters absorb ultraviolet rays that often make outdoor photographs hazy and indistinct, and should be constantly fitted to a lens to provide improved clarity and color balance, as well as to provide protection to your lens.

A must have for any lens
By Michael - dancer's father
from Duvall, WA
I always put a high quality UV filter on my lenses to help protect the front element. Multi-coated, high quality metal framed filters are worth every penny as they protect the front of the lens and the lens threads from any damage that may happen even when carefully used.The only downside is that this is one more element of glass that the light must pass through which means that there is only more bit of distortion and/or reflection introduced. For really high quality lenses, this may be noticeable (albeit minimized by getting a high quality filter)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good accessory for any lens
from Chatham, MA
I use this filter mainly to protect my lens. I believe it cuts haze a little,but I know this is a controversial issue.
I would buy it again,but who needs more
I use it for indoor shooting with low light. Works great.
