Hi there,

IIRC, a 67mm Hoya R72 IR Filter will cost around more than $150 or so. You can go to TK Foto or CP to ask.

Cathy, I bought mine last year March, $88.00.

You can ask MS color to give you a qoute, but need to place order as they don't carry any stock.

Hope this help.

My bad, think I mixed up the price for the R72 filter. :(
But a 77mm cost around SGD$250 over, right? Thought of getting a bigger one then use step-up ring for all my different lenses size,. Currently only have a 52mm and can only be used on my 105mm Micro and 50mm.
