    Default Hoya HMC or B+W F-Pro

    wonder which UV(0) filter is better?
    Hoya HMC (multicoated) or B+W F-Pro (coated, right?)

    Thanks

    B+W UV MRC is better, the MRC refers to Multicoated.

    B+W for easier cleaning, and better optics.

    Does a polarizer affect your image? Does a star/ND4 filter affect your image? If so, then it's pretty straightforward to your question isn't it?

    Scraping them altogether is my wish too, but unless you intend to change a glass everytime after using it, else the filter is necessary.
