Difference between filters

Hoya 72mm Digital Multi-Coated (DMC) Pro1 UV Filter
Hoya 72mm Super HMC Pro 1 UV (O) Filter

Can anybody tell me in easy language what the difference is between those filters. I can't see much difference on onestop digital. I've ordered the last one, but they've run out of stock and only got the first one in stock. Too be honest, I didn't knew which one to choose, so i'd choosen the super pro as i already have one for my other lens, smaller size though.

My 18-200mm has been ordered aswell

Re: Difference between filters

There was a fairly recent thread on this very subject.

Re: Difference between filters

Thanks Dabhand. It still doesn't make me much wiser as in, which one to get.
The biggest reason I would do it for is then protection (3 young kids who could grab mama's camera) against scratches.
And the vignetting bit is a good point. I think I'm just going for the digital multicoated filter.

It's not easy to take in all this information and form an opinion and decide what to go for

Re: Difference between filters

Basically the standard HMC Pro-1 UV has been around for many years and is very good. The DMC version is a more recent addition and is supposed to have coatings that are optimised for digital camera sensors.

Either will be OK, but it is possible that the DMC one will be slightly better for digital. Or it could be a load of marketing hype, depending on whether you're as cynical as me.

Re: Difference between filters

I think I'm a bit synical in this case. Cause if there would be a big difference or even a difference, then you would be able to tell from the reviews. But thanks silkstone.

I'm going for the dmc, and if there is a difference I will let you guys know Cause I've got the super pro 1 aswell for my other lens!

Re: Difference between filters

I think when you pay that price and buy a well known make,there will be little difference IMHO, but these e-bay cheapies are the ones to steer clear of.

Re: Difference between filters

Since I've been trying to figure out the world of filters I start getting more confused.
I've read a lot about it, but it doesn't make it more easier.

Would it be an idea to gather reviews of filters as in.
Filter Brief explanation were to use it for Maybe some example shots

And I could put it together in a spreadsheet or a file that everyone can read. Just so that newbies like me understand it a bit better. I'm sure there are more people out there who would appreciate this as well!

Crew, what do you think. Good idea?
