    Kind of in response to this thread on UV filters: https://www.mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=73191

    I have a Heliopan UV filter, 37mm, for my 14-42mm kit lens. Would that qualify as a good filter, or a rather a cheap one that will reduce image quality? Thanks!

    I really wish they would do the test again, since it is 6 yrs old. Companies change their coatings over time. That being said, I dont think it is a cheap filter. Quick and dirty text is small classified print. If you can see thru it well, it is fone.

    Heliopan filters are/were supposed to be made by B&W, or so it seemed some years ago. But whether they had exactly the same treatment as B&W filters is another thing.
