Is this a genuine Hoya HD CIR-PL filter?

I also had a fake Hoya filter supplied once, though it was an HMC type (the one in the silver and orange packaging). Fortunately I already had some genuine ones to compare it with.

The differences were:

  • spelling mistakes in the fake

  • poorer quality printing in the packaging - grainy rather like a newspaper print, grey rather than silver

  • larger and different shaped seals/tabs (can't remember if they were gold or silver)

  • rough edge to the text showing the diameter on the metallic background.

I would say yours is probably a fake too.
