good for price

Wayne from Georgia on 12/11/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered two of these, did not find any problems with flaws in the glass. These are older design filters and Hoya has a newer model. There are a few Web reviews of filters and the Hoya HMC is near the top in them. I would only consider the Marumi DHG and the Vue filters as better. My only negative is that these are not extra slim.



cheap and good protection

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The quality of Hoya UV HMC Filter is very Bad since their coating tech. have problem. You will find out it have little clear spot that did not coating under light reflect. The first one I receive have 1.5mm dia. clean spot then I return it to exchange. The 2nd one I receive that also have 1mm dia clean spot too. Contact Hoya customer service ask this problem and no answer too. The other brand that do not have this kind problem; they all same color under light reflect.




Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The HOYA UV filter's multi-coated surfaces increase light transmission and absorb almost all range of UV rays to give clearer and sharper pictures with less haze. The use of ultra-clear glass ensures that color balance is maintained. Constant use for lens protection is recommended. This filter fits most lenses with a 46mm thread diameter.
