So between B+W MRC and Hoya S-HMC Pro 1 UV, which is better?

Thanks.

neither one has the edge in that particular filter. they both a e optically clear and both are well coated. they are in this case a sacrificial protection so get the least pricey multi coated of the two

I dont want to hijack the thread but how bout Quantaray from Ritz camera? I think they are made by Cokin or something like that. Are they decent quality lense?

I go a Quantaray Pro UV filter and it seems to be good to me. Only thing is when I was first putting my lens on the camera, my finger slipped and scratched the coating on the filter. I don't really see any degradation on my pics, but still bothers me. I suppose it is easier to replace a $50 UV filter than a $800 lens (Sigma 7--200 2.8). The best part of all is I bought it with an American Express card with a 90 damage protection. I called them yesterday and they will be giving me a credit back to my card! I think I will check out a B+W just for the heck of it, but I really can't say anything bad about the Quantaray...

Hi, I've got a similar question though I'm on a budget:sad:

So which is better - a plain B&W UV filter or a Hoya HMC?

I'm using a Fuji S100FS, not a DSLR. Will I really notice a difference between multi coated and mono coated?
Actually, I ordered the Hoya UV Pro1D multi coated but the twats at PurelyGadgets sent me a Hoya Pro1D circular polarizing filter - I'm not complaining!
