The 72mm Hoya UV (C) HMC Standard filter features Hoya Multicoating plus a slim line 4mm frame to help prevent vignetting, particularly on wide-angle lenses. Hoya UV Filters absorb the ultraviolet rays which often make outdoor photographs hazy and indistinct. They are a multi-purpose fine-weather filter that also serves as a permanent lens protector.
These popular filters are renowned for their ability to minimise reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting. The result is an average light transmission of over 97%, giving sharp contrast and well balanced colour. HOYA HMC filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of today's multicoated lenses.
