    Default 77mm HOYA/KENKO Pro1D UV Filters

    Hi guys, anyone here is familiar with the current market rate for them in SG?

    i recently saw an eBay store selling the Kenko Pro1D UV for 50+ SGD w/ free shipping and was wondering if theres anyway one could tell whether its genuine or counterfeit...

    I think you can save the trouble and buy it at S$50 from T K Foto.

    I came across someone's recommendation www.maxsaver.net which comes with free shipping when I was looking for a good deal.

    If TS is worried about counterfeit articles then local shops and Mass Sales are the answer. Gives the chance to inspect the item on the spot.

    I would recommend you check out the Mass Sales section for B+W filters before you commit.

    i got my Hoya Pro1 digital from Mscolor.

    This filter is pretty good amongst the Hoya series.

    i always check the lens (not only physical condition but also check for focusing issues) even if i buy from reputatable stores.

    Actually if its a reputable shop, just go back to them and complain.
    They should entertain your complaint.
