The most important thing than is to have a filter that is high-quality multicoated on the front and the back!!!


The place where I buy my gear carries two different 72mm Hama UV filters. The one that is "HTMC" (High Transmission Multi Coating) is only EUR 2 more expensive than the "regular" one. :shock:

Anyway, it's supposed to have 4 layers on each side, so I'm tempted to buy it, just for the ease of mind of knowing the front lens will be protected from scratches / grease marks.

Would anyone with good / bad experiences with Hama UV filters please share them?

I have the 77mm version of that filter on my Sigma 10-20mm. No problems to report here doesn't cause any extra vignetting and lens flare, although present, isn't as much as 10mm would suggest. I like it.

Zorro.

edit - Maybe not, I'm not sure. Here's a link to my filter. Sorry for any confusion.

So, Zorro, you have a Hoya-, not a Hama-filter!?
Anybody here with Hama-filter experience?
At least 4-layer-multicoating on both sides sounds good...

Damn, I hadn't even noticed we were talking about Hama and not Hoya. I blame the medication.

Sorry. :oops:

I'll get well today! We're heading for Glencoe this morning (if I can get my finger out and actually move). Weather forecast not good but we'll see. It's very windy so hopefully that'll move the clouds along a bit. Glencoe's pretty high and the bit we're going to (The Lost Valley) is even more remote. Requires a long walk-in. We'll see. If the weather turns out to be lousy we'll head on to the coast I guess.

Zorro.
