Comments about Hoya Hoya 72mm Introductory Filter Kit, UV, Circular Polarizer, 81A and Filter Wallet:

This set is nice becuase it gives you 2 of your most needed filters (UV / protection filter, polarizer) and filter wallet. The warming filter is OK but would have rather had a neutral density filter in its place.

Comments about Hoya Hoya 72mm Introductory Filter Kit, UV, Circular Polarizer, 81A and Filter Wallet:

The Hoya package represented a good value and I did not want to spend too much money on a filter set since I was buying a Canon factory refurbished 40D and was not sure how well it would all work out. The filter set is a good match for the camera, but as I upgrade lenses, I will most likely upgrade the filters as well to B&W or Hoya multi coated filters. I own several other Hoya filters and the one issue I have with them is the smooth texture of the finish (particularly on the poliarizer). They are so smooth, that they can be difficult to get of the lens. I prefer the ribbed texture on my B&W polarizer (for my Olympus 12-54 lens) since it is easier to remove. This filter kit comes in a large folding pouch that is about 3"x6" and takes up a bit of room in my camera bag. I would have preferred 3 seperate filter holders for greater ease of use and storage. Overall, the Hoyas have served me well over the years.

Comments about Hoya Hoya 72mm Introductory Filter Kit, UV, Circular Polarizer, 81A and Filter Wallet:

This starter kit is a great way to familiarize yourself with the many benefits of using lens filters. The wallet is a great way to take your filters wherever you go, and keeps them handy and protected. A great little booklet comes with the kit explaining each filter's purpose and when to use it.
