This is a fairly decent UV filter for lens protection. It's low cost is offset by fairly decent quality. You get what you pay for. Unless you are doing a SI swimsuit or NatGeo shoot, this will do nicely. Glass was not very clean upon arrival and package was unopened so this causes me to think it was like this at time of packing. Shipping from this particular vendor was a bit slower than I had hoped for. The lens I ordered at the same time got here several days before the UV filter. I had to go to xxxxx and purchase one to protect the camera lens.
This crown shaped lens hood is just what I needed. Shooting in a very sunny locale without it gave me TOO MUCH light streaming in from the sun and a waterfall behind my subjects. I knew the pictures were likely to be too bright because I could not screen out enough sunlight. Next time I am in such a situation I will be prepared with this hood and a filter.
