Hi,

What is the difference between these two filter ?

Hoya HMC Haze UV(0) - Filter - UV - 67 mm

http://www.amazon.com/...UTF8&s=electro ... 990&sr=8-1

and

Hoya 67mm HMC Multicoated UV Filter

Little impatient eh? ;) Bumping your thread so soon. Not so cold blooded after all perhaps? :D

Problem is your links don't work. You'd better fix that.

Long story short, multicoating is a special coating that prevents additional flare into your image if you shoot into the sun for instance.

I'd get the multicoated one ;)

haha... a bit sort of...

I think amazon changed link..it was working earlier...

By the way, after fitting these hoya filters, will i be still able to place lens cap on top of it ?

Usually not a problem. A filter has the same thread on its front as the thread it screws into. If your lens cap is of the type that grips the inside of the lens (in the filter thread) than it will do so too on the filter.

Provided they are not Slim(line) filters of course. Those usually cost more, so I think you would notice it.

I have a Hoya HMC filter and my lens cap fits perfectly.
