General ranking Product name Transmittance ranking Evaluation of transmittance Reflectance ranking Evaluation of reflectance UV-cut effect ranking Evaluation of UV-cut effect Comment
1 HOYA HD UV 2 A 1 A 1 A An excellent product with all the factors providing a wholly-balanced high performance. Transmittance and anti-reflective efficiencies are prominent. It is the most valuable camera filter adopting tempered glass and an anti-fouling effect.
2 B+W Xs-Pro Digital Ultraviolet MRC 1 A 6 B 4 A Outstanding transmittance efficiency, but room for improvement in the UV-cut effect. This filter is therefore recommended for those for whom the UV cut effect is not the top priority. Also includes an anti-fouling effect.
3 Kenko Zeta UV L41(W) 6 A 3 A 1 A A positive and generally well-balanced product. No faults are found, but it is expensive.
4 HOYA Ultraviolet UV PRO1 Digital 3 A 2 A 1 A An excellent product with all the factors providing a wholly-balanced high performance. Buyer satisfaction guaranteed.
5 Kenko PRO1 Digital UV 3 A 2 A 1 A An excellent product with all the factors providing a wholly-balanced high performance. Buyer satisfaction guaranteed.
6 HOYA S-HMC Super Multi Coated UV(O) 3 A 2 A 1 A An excellent product with all the factors providing a wholly-balanced high performance. Buyer satisfaction guaranteed.
7 HOYA Ultraviolet UV(O) Haze Multicoated 5 A 7 B 1 A An excellent product with all the factors providing a wholly-balanced high performance. Buyer satisfaction guaranteed.
8 HOYA UV(C) HMC 7 A 4 B 7 C A superior and cost-efficient product. Not only offering effective transmittance and reflectance, but also a great UV-cut effect at this surprisingly low price.
9 ProMaster Digital UV Digital Ultraviolet 4 A 5 B 3 A An excellent product. The coating isn't bad either.
10 ProMaster Digital HGX UV 9 B 9 C 2 A Generally of "mediocre" quality. The coating is of poor quality. Is it the same glass as the Marumi Digital HGX UV?
11 Marumi Digital HGX UV 8 B 11 C 2 A Generally of "mediocre" quality. The coating is of poor quality. Is it the same glass as the ProMaster Digital HGX UV?
12 B+W UV Haze 010(Slim) 4 A 8 B 3 A The glass itself performs well, but a genuine lens cap cannot be used because of the utmost thinness of the frame. An accessory lens cap must be used instead.
13 Heliopan UV(Haze)SH-PCM 10 B 12 C 3 A Made in Germany, brass ring, and premium price. These factors are indeed preferred by professionals, but it is difficult to say that it offers good performance.
14 Tiffen Digital HT Haze86 11 B 10 C 8 D The performance must be deemed substandard considering the high price.
15 Heliopan UV(Haze)Glass Filter 13 C 14 D 6 A The transmittance and reflectance are particularly bad. The coating is substandard.
16 B+W Ultravoilet(UV) 12 C 13 D 1 A Transmittance and reflectance are notably poor. A product with a poor coating.
17 B+W UV 415 (2B) UV 15 D 15 D 5 A Simply high-priced. The expense is a mystery because it seems to have no coating.
18 ProMaster UV Haze Ultraviolet 14 C 17 E 9 D A very roughly-made product. Apparently, no coating is applied.
19 Tiffen UV Protector 14 C 18 E 9 D A very roughly-made product. Apparently, no coating is applied.
20 Tiffen Clear Grlass Filter(Coated) 16 D 16 E 9 E Though it is specified as "coated", it seems to have no coating. The performance is quite poor.
