Heat-resistant / High-Transparency glass. The HOYA UV (C) filter uses the highest quality heat-resistant tempered glass, which creates a smooth, clear image. This filter cuts out all range of UV rays to give an astounding sharpness and clarity without the least affect on color balance. Constant use for lens protection is recommended. These popular filters are renowned for their ability to minimize reflection on filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting. With an average light transmission of over 97%, the HOYA HMC filters are engineered to enhance the performance of today's multi-coated lenses.
Whilst UV filters were more important in the film days due to film being much more sensitive to UV than modern sensors, many weather-sealed lenses still require a filter to complete the weather sealing, and they also help to keep dust and scratches away from the front element of the lens. The slim form-factor of this filter removes the risk of vignetting on wide-angle lenses, while the multiple coatings reduces the chances of lens flare, minimising the effects of having an additional piece of glass in front of the lens.
