Going to B&H photo and Adorama camera tomorrow to make a final decision. I have narrowed it down to either a B+W MRC or a Hoya HD filter. I think either will be a good choice.

It will be a bit like putting gold rims on a Ford Escort, but it's your money. You will almost certainly see no advantages over a number of cheaper filters. However, you'll never know the difference either-- and may even recommend a B+W filter or whatever else you buy to the next person with a 100-buck lens.

The cheaper filters are usually behind in

  1. Flare resistance
  2. Neutrality
  3. Build quality
  4. Ease of cleaning

You could experience all these equally on expensive and cheap lenses.
