    Nah, If you look at the picture, see the palm trees, you loose detail. Also we are not shooting tape, I would say 95% of the people who have a HVX has a P2, so should not be an issue right?

    Yeah, I wondered about those simulated images for the haze filters. Do they really remove detailt that much?

    LOL, I can't force you to read this statement correctly, in that it indicates you will gain detail and elimitate bluish cast with the filter on, but I would consider since the statement is used to sell the lens, I doubt it would highlight a negative in this way. In fact it uses the word "benefit" in the statement. Secondly, your pic says clearly it is a simulation so I would not go by that.

    if I am mis- attributing your statement as to blur to that quote, my apologies, long day. other than that, i have not noticed any neg effects of the filter, but I am sure there are folks who have used it in more conditions than me, that can speak to possible blur.

    If you look at the picture, it's the same FRAME. Same wave breaking points etc.
    This looks to be a mock-up, how would you get the same wave breaks with time to change the filter???
    If it's two camera's, how can we be sure fucus is identical?
    Just wanted to point out how important "simulation" is.
    I'm not saying you don't lose definition, but not in the previous lenses I've owned.

    hehe ya, I know it is a simulation, but still simulation they are good are simulating what you will see.... Now on to matters, if you shoot film, or tape than the filter with haze will benefit you elimanating the bluish cast. But again being 95% of HVX owners haev P2, we should not need to worry about elimanating an issue that tape and film have...Right???

    The haze issue has to do with landscape photography. If you you are shooting something far away there is a build up of ultraviolet light with all that distance. I've never noticed it particularely in video but its probably there. P2 would have nothing to do with it, its just how sensitive the chip is to UV haze.
    Most people just use UV filters the same as they would use clear, to protect the lens. It probably does help with UV though I've never noticed the diff.

    One last note on the simulation above, after a little research they use the same exact photo landscape for different brands including the clear UV lenses. It is not even a B+W simulation or haze specific.

    I just ordered our Polarizer and clear FORMAT filters from B&H.
    FORMAT is the best choice. IMHO.
    So many things to buy when changing cameras!
    Still glad I got the HVX though!!!
