    cleanability is one issue. i find B+W cleans easier compared to hoya and nikon that i've used.

    Hoya is incredibly hard to clean when there are oil smudges, compared with B+W.
    Oh yes, another point is that condensation, fogging etc takes much longer to go away with cheaper filters. Probably due to coating I guess.

    I have both Hoya and B+W CP filter.

    Build Qty is a big difference, But most importantly, B+W filter is able to capture blue with better contrast and you really got to see those deep blue sky.

    Hoya on the othe hand, is close.. but just not that good.
