This is a very High quality protection filter for you valuable lens. Although it's clear but it does have Very High Quality Coating and oil resistance is sooooo good. Can't believe they sell it at such low price. However the low price only works for 77mm. I hope the 82mm one has the similar price.
I use a lot of professional lenses from Sony and Nikon and needed good, fully coated filters for protection. 77mm fits the trinity f2.8 lenses from Nikon. After searching for the best possible buys, I reached Amazon for these Manfrotto Pro filters. These sells for a lot of money for a simple UV filter. I got three and replaced the existing XS-Pro which I have on since the beginning. The Manfrottos are tough, as well made as their top of line tripods and bags. The feel is superb and they are seriously made in Japan. That is the good part. Now for the surprise. I tried to buy all of Amazon stock after using them as I know these are some of the best filters made. But no. The prices have increased! I bought them for a song, Can anyone tell me why did they sell them for a song ?? I cant believe the prices I paid for these amazingly made products. Thanks AMAZON, you are the world's best vendor!
