About Multi-Coating And Digital:
Multi-coating can prevent light reflection, ghost light, internal reflection etc, making image clearer and sharper. It can dramatically improve image quality. This is specially important in digital cameras. Since the image sensors CCD or CMOS are highly susceptible to reflections, this stray light can ruin your photographs. Multicoated glass benefit substantially reduced light reflections, resulting clearer image with greater contrast.

Features of UV filter:
Haze (UV) filters are wise initial investments. They help protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs. If desired they can be left on the lens at all times for protection. Haze filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet (UV) light which can register on film, videotape and digital recording media as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details. Ultraviolet filters allow you to correct for the UV effect to varying degrees. UV-Haze filters are helpful when photographing mountain and marine scenes, where increased haze threatens to make your photographs indistinct in color and clarity.
