And I guess you saw their discription of the digital version.

The description is the same as on another website. It is probably Hoya own description.

The description doesn't state how think and how many layers Pro-1D UV is. Do you think it is the same as Pro-1, i.e. 3mm and 12 layers?

New from Hoya.The New Pro 1 Digital Filter series.
After comparing the new Digital Pro 1 series rings with the current Pro 1 filters rings the new almite coating on the rings is superb. The new rings also have a much easier to use knurling on the ring, the new ring makes the filter much easier to mount and adjust. The finish is an anti reflective black matte. The new digital multi-coating is very impressive. I took a clear protector and placed it on a laser printed page. The area which is covered by the filter was easier to read than the non covered area. The letters appear to have more contrast, due to the decreased reflection and glare off the paper surface. Hoya did a great job on these filters; they far exceeded what I expected when the new line was announced.

Have you personally tested Pro-1D? Do you think it is better than Pro-1?

That was a quote from a web site and not my opinion ...I never heard of the digital series until this thread.

The more multi coating the more expensive the better the filter. How about $100.00 that has to be the best.
