    Hoya filter question...

    I am planning on getting a UV and a circular polarizing filter, size 62mm.

    When I went on the B&H photo website they have different Hoya lenses at different price ranges, from $20 bucks on up. Will getting a more expensive filter really make a difference, or should I just save my money and get their more inexpensive models?

    The more expensive models can be found on Ebay for a little less(as they are shipped from overseas). Is this a possible way to go if a more expensive filter would be better?

    Also, I had already purchased the Hoya UV(O) Super multi-coated filter and it got scratched. Are these lenses supposed to be scratch resistant, or do I need to buy a type of lens that is resistant to scratches?

    Thanks in advance.

    IMHO this is a good quality filter

    and there are no scratch resistant lens and that is why I use the filter, to protect the camera lens..

    as for the polarizer there is no need to get a circular polarizer for the FZ20
    a linear will work as well.

    UV Filters

    I have a new DMC-FZ30 camera. I found an old UV Filter lense made by Kenko, It had been on an AE1 Canon I had. It fits right on the camera. Would this be OK to use on the camera.

    Thanks, JohnT

    No problem as long as is has one coating on each side. If you are not sure you can get a dual coated 55mm UV on eBay for $10.00.

    One must see with their vision.
