The EVO Antistatic UV(0) Filter features a lightweight, one-piece, low-profile aluminum frame to house the glass. This one-piece design allows the filter to maintain parallel alignment to the sensor plane for maximum sharpness, while the low-profile form eliminates vignetting when used with ultra-wide angle lenses.
The EVO Antistatic UV filter employs distortion-free optical glass and a special multi-coating process that help’s make this one of the sharpest and easiest filters to clean and maintain. The filter’s ultra-violet (UV) properties filter unwanted UV rays, reduce haze and increase clarity at high altitudes.
Hoya applies a proprietary Antistatic layer during the multi-coating process that prevents static electric build-up on the filter's surface that is caused during cleaning and handling of the filter. Great for environments where dust is common, these filters require less frequent cleaning and maintenance than traditional filters.
Additionally, the hardened, antistatic top-layer is water repellent, stain, and scratch-resistant, and cleans easily when smudges or fingerprints are introduced to the surface.
The EVO Antistatic UV filters are made in Japan using hand-selected silicates that are carefully smelted and blended to yield high-performance UV optical glass. Hoya then applies 16-layers of a Super Multi-Coating (SMC) anti-reflection formula which greatly reduces or eliminates reflections on the surface of the glass and yields a 99.8% light transmission rate. This means the filter has virtually no effect on color, contrast, or clarity of the final image. Exactly what you want from a UV Protection filter.
The filter comes in plastic clamshell protective case for easy storage and transportation.
