Re: Hoya filter with no branding, or ebay ripoff attempt?

Most filter makers will produce "house brand" filters for retaillers like Wolf Camera. I suspose it's possible you could get a filter made by a name brand manufacturer with no logo. I have one laying in a drawer that came on a used lens I purchased.

Having said that, filters are rather a hot topic on this forum and you can find some pretty compelling arguements to the effect that you shouldn't use one at all.

My suggestion is that sticking to the best filters available is the best way to avoid degrading image quality from your very expensive lenses. On the other hand, if you try it and the results are satisfactory maybe you got a bargin.

One day long ago, a sorcerer and a warrior did battle, as such things were commonplace in that age. Sometimes the sorcerer won, and the sum value of human abilities was improved some trifling amount. Sometimes the warrior won, and again the human race improved by some insignificant amount, for a sorcerer who can't defeat one miserable warrior is a poor sorcerer indeed.
