About the product

Overview

Protect your lens. Sharpen your photos.

This filter will protect your lens from scratches, finger prints and dust, while blocking UV light which will make your photos look even better.

  • 99.6% light transmission

    Outstanding visible light transmission up to 99.6% and excellent UV reduction, only letting through .02% Ultra Violet light.

  • 16 layer nano coating

    For perfect colour neutrality and durability. This filter can withstand salty water, dust, extreme wind and other abrasive elements.

  • Lifetime replacement

    At Gobe we stand by each product with a lifetime warranty.

Remove haze & reduce the chance of breaking your lens.

The Gobe UV 3Peak can be left on your lens at all times as your exposure settings aren’t affected and no additional coloration or contrast is created.

It can be combined with other filters and still provide the highest quality image with maximun detail.

How does it work

When Ultra Violet light is combined with fine water vapor or dust particles in the air it becomes diffused.

Diffused UV light can create a blue cast as well as degradation of image sharpness and contrast, particularly rendering distant subjects unclear.

Using a Gobe UV filter, you’ll be able to block UV light, cutting through the haze and sharpening the image.

  • Premium optical glass

    Made with SCHOTT B270 optical glass and coated with 16 layers of Gobe’s ultra-nano coating for extra sharpness.

  • Ultra-slim profile

    All Gobe lens filters have an ultra-slim rim, to avoid vignetting on wide angle lenses.

  • Magnalium framing

    Durable frame made from extra tough magnalium which prevents jamming.

This is a fantastic filter. It does everything I would expect and moreReview by Tigger

This is a fantastic filter. It does everything I would expect and demand of a filter from a big name camera builder selling at more than three times the cost.
The recyclable cardboard box is a nice touch because it provides excellent protection during shipping and since I don't intend to take one of these filters off later because it's main function is to protect an expensive lens, the fancy containers other manufactures include end up as wasted money because you are only going to need them once.
One reviewer said this filter turned all of his pictures green because he noticed the outer anti-reflective layer was reflecting a green color. This is rather misinformed since the colors reflected by the anti-reflective coating represent a part of the visible light spectrum that is being rejected by the anti-reflective coating because it is part of an unwanted internal reflection and not part of the image you want. The color of the reflected light on the face of the lens or filter in no way has any effect on the picture you take, but help you to see how well the coating is rejecting unwanted internal reflections.. There are eight different coatings on each side of this filter to control internal reflections and the multi coating tech needed to get the eight layers on each side of the filter are an expensive process. Most cheaper lenses and filters have a faint violet reflective appearance because they have only one type of coating which is generally applied to both sides of the glass while the better filters and lenses may have an amber looking reflective layer that indicates a better multi coated lens or filter with more than one type of coating.
The green color of the most expensive lenses and filters was for years exclusively found only on Carl Zeiss lenses under their "T*" logo brand of lens and filter coatings.
I need to also mention that among the top tier optical sellers of filters, few of them actually make the filters sold under their official brand names because the filter market is much smaller than the lens business and not a huge profit generator, so they farm filter production out to specialty companies. For many years Minolta was the only maker of the raw optical glass used for lens making that had the same optical properties as the glass from the Zeiss JANA works. Since Sony purchased Minolta it is no surprise to me they are able to feature Zeiss branded lenses on their higher end cameras since they would be easily able to meet the requirements needed to properly use the Zeiss trademarks under license.
Here are two pictures taken with identical lenses with one lens with the T* coating and the other without any ant-reflective coatings.
Zeiss says that the "T" in the name of those lenses and filters means "Transparency" because their optical properties "make the glass disappear" (Posted on 1/23/2018)
