Awesome, it looks like I'll be sticking with my Hoya HMC UV(0) 49mm on my Minolta 50/1.7 instead of the Minolta UV filter. Time to toss that 55mm Tiffen off of my 100-300APO, after seeing only 90% visible light transmission.

great test ! It reaffirms other less thorough info that's out there. Hoya HMC & Pro-1 for me :) Also nice illustration of just how bad really bad filters can be.

Are you trying to piss me off? Why couldn't you post this last night? I just bought 2 Kenko Pro-1 filters after reading how the Kenko and Hoya were the same just cheaper.

wasn't the Super HMC Pro1 suppose to have 99.7% light transmission? base on the review the light transmission is 97.x%... same as the HMC version.

Thanks for posting this! I'd often wondered about whether UV filters worked/did a good job etc.

Has anybody got anything to say for the Hoya HMC Supers or Pro1's over the standard HMC's?
