I have the $10.90 filter. It seems decent. I don't know if its coated. I did compare it to my cheap S&W UV coated filter by holding them at an angle to the light and the Hoya seems to have more glare.

Here you go, no guessing now!!!!!




These filters offer photographers quality at reasonable prices. They have coatings applied to both surfaces to suppress reflection and increase light transmission. These filters are renowned for their ability to minimise reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting. The result is an average light transmission of over 97%, giving sharp contrast and well balanced color. HOYA HMC filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of today's multicoated lenses.

Thesefilters offer revolutionary performance in light transmission and color balance. 12 layers of Super Multicoating are applied to the surfaces of the Skylight 1B and UV(0) models, which produces an average transmission of 99.7%! Coupled with maximum surface precision, this allows increased resistance to flare and stunning images can be recorded at wide apertures without compromising the performance of your lenses.



Filters in this series use our new ULTRA thin rings which, like the Super PL-CIR filter, are designed primarily to avoid vignetting problems which occur with wide angle lenses. The ULTRA series filters use rings just 3mm in thickness.
