    Default Filters

    Hi all CSers,

    I was just wondering if Kenko filters belong to Hoya

    Please enlighten me on this.




    Thanks in advance,
    Cheers!

    Default Filters.

    Remember reading they are the same; US marketed with Hoya while Japan marketed with Kenko. Different branding for different countries.

    I can't answer that. I don't use CPL.

    I'm currently using the Pro1D CPL Kenko and Hoya filter... For me the quality for both are very good.. I couldn't confirm though for the normal Kenko CPL..

    Hmmm,i guess thats all you want to support, cos according to reviews,many other brands seems 'unusable'. Cos of the amount of glare,reflection,and sometimes the number of stops it reduces seem undesirable to others.
