Wats the difference?

UV filter - A basic must have filter for any photographer with an SLR . It absorbs ultra-violet and blue rays effectively without increase of exposure. Recommended for snapshots , color scenery and tele-photography. Best also for protection of the camera lens


1A Skylight - A basic filter just like the Marumi UV for any photographer with an SLR . Just like the UV , the 1A absorbs ultra-violet and blue rays effectively without increase of exposure. Especially recommended for Indian Sunlight and outdoor photography , it also gives a warmer effect to portraits.

Says the same thing.

UV filters have no colour cast. A skylight filter is slightly warm, usually very light pink.

I wouldn't buy Marumi filters even if every other manufacturer closes down.

Hoya is already rather cheap.

A 52/55mm SHMC UV/Skylight is only $20+.

Since its going to be over your lens all the time, you probably wouldn't want to worry if it's going to degrade your image quality......the extra few $ for peace of mind.:)

1A is pink color, UV is amber. If you use the 1A filter as a protection filter. Then I bet you'll hate the pink cast on the subject's face as much as i do. :p

No, 1A will only make your picture look pink. Pink will tone down green hues. UV will tone down the blue hues. Just don't get fool by the advertisements where most of them will tell you that 1A will give you warmer color. For warmer color use 81A, for richer color use a CPL, Thats all... :p
