UV filters are most commonly used to protect the front of your lens. A first line of defense against scratches, rain, dirt and dust. For this reason, most photographers leave it attached to the lens all the time. But the filter also plays an important role in filtering through UV Haze. Not a huge problem when you are taking pictures at sea-level but as you hike into higher altitudes the filter definitely helps cut through the haze to increase contrast and improve color.
Hoya NXT UV filters are manufactured using high quality glass with 6-layers of multi-coatings which improves light transmission to 97%. This means more light travels through the glass for improved color reproduction, sharpness and contrast.
The NXT UV filters have a precision milled lightweight aluminum slim profile frame that makes it perfect for all lenses including super wide-angles. The frame sports full front filter threads that can accept a normal lens cap or allows you to stack additional filters like a circular polarizer or neutral density.
