Kenko Pro 1 Same as Hoya Pro 1 Filters?
May 24, 2006

I've heard that 'Hoya' is the export name for Kenko, and that the Kenko Pro 1 Circular Polarizer is exactly the same as the Hoya one. Can anyone confirm this for me. There is a big price difference on eBay, Hoya is double the price!

Kenko (£36):
