    I find my B+W gives me more psychological comfort than Hoya!

    If anything, the Minolta CPL I bought certainly produces no vignetting on wide angle compared to horrible vignetting on the Hoya

    I have a B+W filter. Bought the HOYA Super HMC because was over budget for me. Didn't take note about the MRC (Multi-Resistant Coating).

    I just tried clean both B+W and HOYA filter...yes... there is different...

    But what can I do... if I sell my HOYA Super HMC, it will be a great lost... if I sell it at $28-$30... would anyone want?

    If anyone want it at that price, I will sell it. I need to sell 2 of them...

    One thing gd abt the B+W is that even when fine mists of water get onto the filter, it'll just evaporate off after a while and leave no marks. But in the case for Hoya, it's the other way round.

    That's the true quality between a Japanese filter vs German ones.

    Go to any reputable shop.

    Ask to see both the Hoya and the B&W UV filters

    Place both on a white piece of paper. COmpare

    You'll notice the Hoya has a slight yellow tint whereas the B&W is totally clear

    You get what you pay for. =)

    You are right... didn't notice it until I just check it. Okay... time to sell the HOYA.

    The metal construction of B+W filter (from brass??) also known very sturdy and fit well to the thread of the filter. Compare that too with Hoya. See the differences?

    B+W filters trump Hoyas any day. The fact that it is easy n hassle free to clean makes the premium all worth while especially when u r traveling!

    I agree with that. My Hoya Pro 1 digital ones are a little more difficult to 'eat' into the lens threading. And yes, it's made of brass and has improved properties over aluminium.

    you can try from here
    got my kaesemann CPL from this site. registered delivery in 1 week.

    price after conversion is about the same as a normal CPL.
    for normal CPL, prices are abit cheaper than what you will find in stores here.
