    If you under your budget an get B+W Nano XS-Pro MRC UV-Haze or Hoya HD.

    Save your future time for clean up the coating.

    more or less aiming for a B+W, whats the diff between a B+W Clear UV-Haze MRC Filter (010M) - 77mm & a B+W Nano XS-Pro MRC UV-Haze , any idea how much would that cost?

    What are the good multi coated filters to recommend than?

    The nano coated ones are slimmer in profile and easier to clean than the regular F-Pro ones.

    You can fit lens caps over the Nano ones. I do that right now. Not an issue at all.

    Having said that, the Nano ones have abit of problem screwing in Lee filter adapters but once the filter is removed it is fine. This does not affect normal use for me since I always remove the UV filter when using Lee anyway.

    I agree with the LEE issue - it can get VERY difficult to screw the adapter ring in for nano series.
