58mm UV Filter

Protect your lens and block excessive UV light with this UV Filter from Monoprice!

The primary use for a UV filter is in reducing the amount of ultraviolet light that reaches your film or digital image sensor. Older film was particularly susceptible to UV light, but newer film stocks are relatively immune, as are digital image sensors. However, at higher altitudes, the UV light can affect the resulting photograph.

Nowadays a UV filter is primarily used as a protective device for expensive lenses. When taking photos in outdoor environments, it is better to get dust, twigs, and rain on an inexpensive UV filter than on your expensive lens. Additionally, if the lens is dropped or smacked up against a wall, it is better to let the filter take the fall than your lens.

This filter fits a standard 58mm threaded filter mount on the end of a lens or filter adapter. It comes in a reusable, snap-latch plastic case with foam to protect the filter and keep it from sliding around inside the case.

Pros: Looks fine

Cons: Does not fit on my 58mm lens

The threads do not hold it on at all, possibly defective. The lens cap I bought from Monoprice holds onto the filter tight enough to pull it off. Since then it doesn't stay on. This product is not worth the price. I am using a canon 18-55mm IS II

by Monoprice Administrator

Truly sorry to hear the threads are not holding to your Canon IS II. We do offer a 30 day return policy as well as a one year warranty on this item. If you would like, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement, which will be of no additional cost to you. Please let me know if you would like to continue with a replacement and I can get that started for you right away.

not coated

Pros: Cheap, well made, ....

Cons: Not coated

Yes the price is great, ahd it will protect your lens, but the filter is not multicoated like most filters.

Defeats the purpose of having a quality lens if you put junk in front of it.

Sometimes you get what you pay for.

Seems decent

Looks and feels solid. Fits well in my Nikon AF-S 50mm. Seems optically clear, with a slight drop in brightness.
