Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I went for the best. I am not a professional photographer and can not judge on the subtleties of the filters, but it is well built, easy to attach and all my photos are as clear and not distorted as I can judge.

Pros: Well built, easy to attach, my photos look great.

Cons: none

High quality filter.

You'll notice the immediate difference with Hoya Multi-Coated Filters

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

You've probably done the research, and if not, well Hoya super multi-coated
filters are essential to any valuable DSLR lens. If you own a Canon L lens,
don't even think about getting the Canon made filter (uncoated) or Tiffen. The
superior performance of the Hoya Pro1 D will be real clear once you compare.
