FYI: the difference between the Hoya HD vs. HD2 filters.

I was in the process of shopping for filters and search turned up nothing, only unanswered questions.  So I gave Hoya/Kenko Tokina a call and this was what their customer service/technical information guy told me.

"There is no difference.  What has changed is the warranty.  Whereas prior year HD filters carried a 1-year warranty, the new HD2 filters carry a much longer warranty.  The UV and Protector filters now carry lifetime warranties, and the polarizer now carries a 5-year warranty."

Just FYI, in case somebody else on the web is wondering.
