About Hoya

Light rays which are reflected by any surface become polarised and polarising filters are used to select which light rays enter your camara lens.
• They allow you to remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water, glass etc.
• They also saturate colors and increase contrast.
• Polarizers come in two variations but have the same effect. Linear polarizers work with older camera meters; Circurlar polarizers are designed for today's newer split-beam metering systems used in auto focus cameras. Check your camera's manual.
• Hardened Glass: Hardened optical glass that has 4 times the breaking strength in ANSI standardized testing (ANSI Z80.3 : 2001) where a steel balls of varying size and weight were dropped from a height of 50 inches onto the glass.
• High Transparency Polarizing Film; The polarizing film is the same as that used in the latest high definition LCD TV screens. It has 25% higher light transmission than standard polarizing film used in current photographic filters.
•Hardened 8 Layer Waterproof Multi-Coating That is Scratch & Stain Resistant: Newly developed industry leading 8-layer multi-coating yields an average light transmission rate of 99.35% between 400 and 700nm (visible spectrum). These coatings greatly reduce reflections off the surface of the glass allowing you tocapture more light in your photos.
• As with all HOYA multi-coatings,HD HMC is applied in a furnace at high heat, bonding the coating to the surface of the glass. This process is called "hard coating" and it is far more durable than other coating techniques. The chemistryof the top layer is formulated not just to be more durable but to be resistant to oil stains. This means that finger prints and other oils are much easier to remove.

Fantastic quality CPL!

I bought this filter after having disliked the Pro1 series from Hoya because of the difficult getting them perfectly clean. The HD series solves that problem. Most marks can be wiped away with any cloth with little effort. Corners can be cleaner up later. The filter mount is very thin lending itself to work well on wide angle lenses. The rotation is smooth and feels very high quality. I love the HD series so much I wish they offered them in ND filters as well!

Nice but it gets stuck on the lense

I like the effect and build quality of the filter. Is is really thin and I can see no degradation in the image quality when using it The fact that is thin is the reason for the problems with it. The filter is thin and any pressure applied to it in order to be removed makes it to get stuck. I struggled for an hour to remove the filter even from the lens or from another Hama Pro UV filter.

solid polarizer

By

i use this mostly for outdoor shooting, especially involving reflections or blue sky. it can help show more saturated colors and enhance or reduce reflections where you need.

Works Fine

Always have to be careful starting filter threads. And we're usually in a hurry. This one is no harder or easier to thread than the few others I've used.

One good piece of glass deserves another

By

Although this is a very thin lens there is still a slight bit of vignetting at the widest degree (24mm in this case) but otherwise I think it was a good investment.

Expensive but worth it!

By

I had recently purchased a Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 and needed new filters for the 77mm size of this lens and my Tokina 12-24. After shelling out that kind of money for a lens I wanted to get the best filters I could afford. I've used many Hoyas over the years and have always been impressed with their quality. This one is no exception. The construction quality is superb and is much thinner than other polarizers I've used. Though I've not logged much time with it yet, the images seem very crisp and clear and more nuetral than others I've tried. This filter along with the new Tiffen HT ND's will cover most of my bases when shooting outdoors. Bottom line: Get it if you can afford it!

Shopper  I need a polarizing filter for a wide-angle Vivitar lens 28MM #28220366, do you have?
JUD B  Yes, I have the 77mm Hoya HD filter and I'm very happy with it. A little pricey but worth it. I actually have two for my two most used lenses. Highly recommend.
Shopper  do nikon brand lens caps stay in place on these Hoya HD 77mm ? rockwell does not address this issue
VALERIU N  Lens caps for Tamron 70-200 and Tokina 11-16 sit well on the filter. No issues with Hoya polarizers/UV I have on Nikon 50 1.4 (58mm)
