Spectral transmission — Zeiss UV filters

This is what I want to see in a UV or clear filter: a sharp cut from near-UV to indigo, and transmission close to 100% out to 650nm.

However, note that the Zeiss UV filter cuts out long-wave UV and the very deepest indigo. This is probably by design. Compare to the B+W 010, which passes more indigo.
