    Default Hoya vs Emolux

    Hi i would juz like to find out generally for basic UV type, which of these 2 brands are better. from what i hv heard, the tint of the reflection off the glass of the filter can tell u how good it is. frm what i see the both reflect white light. however their reflection on the glass is different. the hoya has a tint whereas the emolux reflects the same colour. anyone can enlighten me? thanks

    from these threads i gather that emolux filters are generally given as freebies due to their low cost. so i juz have to assume that juz bcos their filters are cheaper, they are inferior to hoya? hmmm this conclusion abit debatable... but am i right to say the reflected tint is a measure of the filter's effectiveness?
