I bougth the Phayee Adapter and Rong Jin offers my this options in UV filter:

- Hoya HMC UV = $15

- Kenko Super HMC UV = $29

He tell me that both are made for the same Japanese Manufacturer.

What do you think? Wich buy?

Are any very important difference btw HMC and Super HMC to a newbie?



Thanks.
