For those who want the best in protection and only protection

Exclusive chemically hardened crystal clear optical glass places a transparent shield in front of the lens for superior lens protection in all situations. The HD2 Protector glass has no optical properties acting like it is not even there for shooting purposes.

Protection for your valued optics

The Hoya HD2 Protector is the ultimate in clear filters. It has no effect on sharpness, color balance or performance of the lens in any way. However, keeping on the lens constantly will protect the front element of the lens from damage due to dirt, sand, spray or knocks and scratches.”

The exclusive Hoya HD2 16-layer multi-coating is found in the UV and Protector and Circular Polarizer. This multi-coating process reduces reflections and greatly increases light transmission through the filter glass. The top layer is especially hard coated and more durable making it scratch and stain resistant and water repellent. The HD2 multi-coating does all this while maintaining an average light transmission rate of 99.35%. Even though the frame is thin it still has a full front filter thread that can accept a normal lens cap or stack filters

The HD2 series plus the EVO ANTISTATIC and NXT series filters are manufactured by Hoya exclusively for distribution in the United States of America.

*Neither Hoya nor it's US distributor recommend exposing camera gear to wind-blown sand, dirt or rain. While the filter can handle these conditions other pieces of equipment may not. Use common sense and take precautions when photographing in harsh conditions or inclement weather.
