This lens’ function is to protect the lens from dirt, sand and water without adding any special effects. As with all XS-Pro filters, this clear filter is covered with eight layers in a multi-resistant coating (MRC). This gives ultimate anti-reflection for better imagery, while being resistant to scratches, water and dirt. With hydrophobic material, water drops slide off.
The multi-resistant coating (MRC) in this B+W XS-Pro digital 007 clear filter is harder than glass and gives ultimate protection against the elements while preventing scratches. It has the added bonus of preventing internal ghosting and reflections. The small mounting rings stop vignetting even when shooting with wide-angle lenses.
This filter uses XS-Pro’s digital mount which is especially suited for DSLRs with wide angle and zoom lenses. The front thread attaches additional accessories such as lens caps or hoods. All XS-Pro digital mounts are made of brass and are matte black to prevent reflections. This helps to minimise vignetting while enhancing durability and stops jamming.
Constructed from world-class German Schott glass, this lens has optical clarity for enhanced colour reproduction. Schott’s advanced optical filter glass has the ability to selectively absorb and refract wavelengths. This results in image replication that has undistorted colour and clear imagery.
The multi-layered MRC coating is further layered with a nano coating for ultimate protection against the elements. With a highly effective hydrophobic coating, this filter is completely resistant to water drops. Contact with water won’t impact the cleaning ability of this filter.
The double threaded design makes it easy to stack this XS-Pro filter with others. With a male fitting on one side and a female fitting on the other, it’s really easy to lock other filters in place. Add more filters to create new effects while still protecting your lens as much as possible.
Protect the filter itself by safely storing it away in a filter case. When you’re not using the filter, it’s important to keep it stowed away safely to avoid any damage. Even though it’s hardy and strong, you will want to keep your filter in the best condition so it lasts a long time.

You can see which filter thread you need by checking the inside of your lens cap.
Yes, you can still attach your lens cap with a filter attached to the lens.
A protection filter protects from scratches, dust and dirt, whereas UV filters block ultraviolet rays from the sun, as well protects the lens from scratches, dust and dirt.
Use a residual oil remover, which, unlike other lens cleaners, emulsifies and removes the microscopic film of oil on the surface that is caused by environmental pollution. You can also use a Lenspen which has a carbon tip that absorbs oil and contaminants. A Hurricane Blower is also great for cleaning off dust simply with blasts of air without using any chemicals.
