It was quite neutral'cause it was recommended for regular color shooting (landscapes especially), not for high mountain, lakes, rivers, beach and snow that require stronger UV filters.
CarlosIts possible that one or more of the glass types used in these lenses cut off transmission quickly above the visible blue. Also, some optical cements do not pass UV.
