Re: Get a Kenko, because they're Hoya

I believe Kenko purchased Hoya. Often the cheaper filters with 'Kenko' written on the side are in fact exactly the same filter as the more expensive 'Hoya' filter.

They are made in the same factory.

There are still even cheaper Kenko filters, but their 'better' line is likely exactly the same as Hoya except you pay less money.

Kind of the opposite, Hoya owns Kenko, Tokina and recently sold Pentax photographic division.

They just re branded most of the filters.
