Cokin is a French brand and they make some real good stuff. I have a Cokin filter set for my Panasonic FZ28 I bought on eBay for less than $20...a real bargain. The filters perform just fine.

Both Hoya and Kenko (and others) outsource a fair amount of their filter manufacturing to the same company : Tokina Company of Japan.
(Tokina themselves have been around for more than half a century).
So not easy to differentiate, certainly between Hoya and Kenko.
I use a Kenko on my FZ38 and have never experienced any issues with it.

I've ordered a HAMA UV Filter from our online shop locally, I see no mention of it here, do anyone have and used these filters, please some feedback on it. I see the HOYA filter is the popular one, thanx.

Yes, I have a HAMA filter I bought from an eBay seller from the UK once. I liked it very much. It is multi-coated and works real well. I never experienced ghosting or noticed any image degradation caused by it.

Hi, Paul-

I also have 2 Hama filters that I purchased on E-Bay. They were inexpensive and of very good quality, as Tullio mentioned, they are also multi-coated. That is pretty amazing considering their price.

If I'm not mistaken, HAMA is Hoya in Europe. HAMA was never sold in the regular US market but it is very popular across the pond.
