I'm currently shopping for ND and CP filters and I notice that Adorama sells Hoya filters in Amazon for less than they do in their own site (~$10+ difference per filter). However in their Amazon store they didn't specify that it's a "glass filter".

My questions are:

Are these the same exact filters?
Does Hoya even make non-glass filters?

Thanks for any input.

Thanks for the reply. I'm actually looking at the non-coated ones. I think all coated ones are glass. So basically I was just wondering if Hoya actually makes non-glass filters.

Here's what I'm comparing:

52mm:
Adorama Vs Amazon


62mm:
Adorama Vs Amazon


Thanks.

Looks like Hoya doesn't even make uncoated CPL filters, standard filters have signle layer coating

Rey, the ones you linked are glass. I don't know why you would want plastic anyway. You can probablybeat Adorama's prices at The Filter Connection.

Thanks for the link, I'll add them to my bookmark as I already made my purchase.

Just to update this thread. I went ahead and bought four filters at Adorama's Amazon website. I bought a Hoya CP and Tiffen 3-stop-ND @ 52mm and 62mm. The whole thing with shipping cost $86. Not bad.

The 62mm Hoya CP cost $54 at Adorama's own website, but only $24 in their Amazon store. $30 difference! The 52mm CP was $11 cheaper, so I saved $40 just by buying at their Amazon store! I made the purchase on Wednesday and got it today.

Peace.

Rey, I forgot these guys, they had a killer special on Japan made Hoya a week or so ago. I had just bought a couple of lenses and needed some filters. They ship quickly and everything was as advertised.
