Thread: Price check on 67mm UV filter

  1. #1

    Default Price check on 67mm UV filter

    I am thinking of getting a UV filter for my len. 67mm size.

    Thinking of getting it from AP or CP. Would appreciate if someone can update me a ball park price of the item. Say HOYA (normal or HMC), Cokins etc.


    I am asking in case of bad luck and I was to be 'over-quoted' by the sales execs.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Bought a Cokin 67mm UV filter for $25 from CP a few weeks back.
    Price tag was $35.
    A Hoya 67mm Circular Polarizer cost me $65, price tag showed $81.
    Always ask the staff for the best price when shopping at CP or else you pay at retail price.

    I have a Tokina Cir-PL, which is cheaper than a Hoya, and after comparing the two I like the Tokina more even though it's much cheaper.

    They also sell B+W brand filters, but they seem to be a little more expensive. The price tag on a 67mm UV runs at around $90, but I paid $68 for mine as I was buying my lens.

    Between the various brands, HOYA, Tokina, Cokins, etc, are there noticable differences in term of build quality and optical quality?

    B+W is kinda priced out of my comfort zone.

    Tokina made a lot of filters for Hoya. Filters comes in coated and uncoated and multi-coated etc. The difference is the quality and price. Buy what you can afford.

    In the end, the filter is really only a protector, so any brand would do. I'm not sure about differences in optical quality, but I have read elsewhere that if you own a Canon L lens with weather sealing, a B+W filter will complete the sealing in front very nicely.

    Hoya is extremely popular...I haven't seen any brand mentioned as often as this one.

    THK - tokina hoya kenko = 1 company
    each a division.
    Hoya makes glass.
    Tokina makes filters.
    hoya sends quality glass to tokina to make into hoya filters, optics supposedly better.

    Recently i bought one (52mm). Think i was quoted $20. I went for Hoya Super HMC Pro1, think it was $40. Much thinner & lighter.
    From Pentax to 4/3, back to Pentax and then back to M4/3 !?!?
