Excerpt: Anytime I get a new lens, the first thing that goes on the front is a Hoya filter. I have trusted my lenses with Hoya filters for about eight years now. Never once has a front element been damaged when a Hoya filter was protecting it. I particularly like the HD filters.
Excerpt: I have been a pro photographer for over 25 years. I normally use UV filters just for protection on my lenses and have to clean them regularily. These new Hoya HD filters have a great coating on them that reduces the attraction of dust.
Pros: Durable, Easy to clean, Great Coating, Reliable
Excerpt: The filter is exactly as advertised. It is not my first BW filter so I was not surprised. BW has always been a high quality product. I accidentally ordered the wrong one first and had to return the it. The service/return dept was great. The second one came even faster than the first one.
