The 105mm Haze (UV) Filter from Heliopan is a wise investment.It helps protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.If desired it can be left on the lens at all times for protection. A UV filter not only minimizes the bluish cast sometimes found under daylight conditions, but is also the best available protection against accidental damage to the front element of your lens.A lens that accidentally gets dropped on its front element while hiking can potentially be saved by purchasing this item.Some people refer to it as "cheap insurance".As a lens protector, it should be left on at all times. Aside from that more-than-significant benefit, UV filters render your photos clearer, sharper and more contrasty.For those who enjoy outdoor photography, especially distant vistas, a UV filter can produce a more distinct and acceptable image by removing much of the blue tint normally associated with atmospheric haze. The filter ring is made from brass yielding a stronger product.Brass filter rings are also less prone to jamming.In addition, the seal between the glass and filter ring is exceptionally strong giving the filter added strength and durability. The reputation of Schott glass is world renowned.The high production standards combined with a sturdy brass filter ring make these filters hard well worth the investment.Heliopan filters have a "feel" that is distinctive.They may feel heavier than other protection filters from other companies but the benefit is in the construction and results.Not only is the glass exceptional but so is the seal between the ring and glass.Schott Glass used in the manufacture of this filter is legendary and synonymous with the highest standards of filter production. Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details. Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees. The UV-Haze filter is helpful when photographing mountain and marine scenes, where increased haze threatens to make your photographs indistinct in color and clarity. Heliopan filters are "dyed in the mass" and ground, polished and coated to the highest standards of the German optical industry. All Heliopan screw-in type and series size filters are mounted in precision black anodized brass rings to eliminate binding or cross threading and to ensure optimal alignment. Heliopan has been a leader in the filter industry since 1949.They are known for their high quality and production standards.Their slim mounts facilitate using them with wider angle lenses.Heliopan offers most of their filters with either their standard hard coating or with their industry leading SH-PMC 16 layer multi-coating that transmits over 99.5% of the light striking it on to the image plane for the lowest flare and greatest color saturation.
