Our take on the Hoya Alpha UV Filter

by Woody Sherman

Protect your lens while filtering out the ultraviolet rays in outdoor photos that can contribute to haze. The Hoya Alpha UV filter's glass is precision-ground and polished, so you won't have surface imperfections that could distort your images. A rigid aluminum frame holds the filter steady in front of the lens.


  • great optical quality that fits your budget
  • fits most lenses with the listed thread diameter
  • protects lens from bumps, scratches, and dust
  • absorbs UV light in outdoor photos
  • multi-layer coatings greatly reduce surface reflections from the filter's glass
  • precision-milled aluminum frame
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.


Overview: Hoya Alpha-series multi-coated UV filters are designed specifically for digital cameras to absorb ultraviolet (UV) rays. Both surfaces of the optical glass are fully multi-coated to increase light transmission. Specialized UV glass absorbs almost the entire range of UV rays to give clear and sharper images with less haze.

Aluminum Filter Frame: Hoya Alpha-series filters are made with precision-milled aluminum frames. A rigid aluminum frame keeps the filter glass perfectly parallel to the plane of the image sensor for best results.

Lens Protection: UV filters are many times used to protect the lens from fingerprints, dirt, and scratches, and can be kept on the lens at all times.

Great beginner filter! It is multi coated so does not distort images while protecting your front element.
