Hoya EVO vs Hoya HD vs B+W MRC?
Feb 19, 2013

I am looking for a high-quality UV filter, mainly for protection against scratches, dust, and cleaning marks, which a lens hood would be useless against. For me, I would like the filter to have the following properties, in decreasing order of importance:

  1. Minimal decrease in sharpness
  2. Minimal increase in flare
  3. Low cost
  4. Easy to clean
  5. Hard to shatter

I have heard that all three are among the best, and have coatings that are supposed to be flare- and stain-resistant. If you have any of the three, could you comment on how they rate against my criteria?
