p.1 #1 · My Hoya Filter Came Apart!


I have a Hoya Polarizer, 77 mm
But it does not say what model exactly

All it says on the filter is

HOYA 77mm pl-cir
philippines

But it came apart!

The part that screws into the lens got stuck, and when I tried unscrewing it.. it separated.

Is this a known problem with Hoya?

What do you recommend for a good Polarizing filter for my 77mm lenses.. AFFORDABLE
as I hardly ever have money?

Well, I really don't have 200.00...
But I could raise 100.00 usually.

my advice is wait longer and raise twice as much. that way later you don't need to buy yet again.

This particular problem and Hoya's refusal to acknowledge it as a design flaw and deal with it accordingly is why I will never buy Hoya/Kenko/Tokina again, despite the superb optical quality of some of their products. There are a number of quality CPL alternatives for around $100 used - the Nikon CPL, B+W MRC (not Kaesserman), Marumi. They are not available at these prices every day, but with a bit of patience you can get them. The absolute rock bottom prices for new filters are at maxsaver.net, don't let the HK location and cheesy website scare you off, they are legit with excellent service. If you have a receipt for the Hoya and are within 1 year of purchase and have bought from an authorized dealer they will fix the problem for free... until it happens again.

Well, I thought of waiting till I can save enough money to spend like 300.00 on a good polarizer.. but, there are so many choices.

https://www.schneideroptics.com/ecommerce/CatalogSubCategoryDisplay.aspx?CID=680

That page for example.. all 77mm
I found: https://www.schneideroptics.com/ecommerce/CatalogItemDetail.aspx?CID=680&IID=5721

On Ebay for 132.00 B+W 77mm CIRC POL MRC Filter 77 mm F-Pro CPL C-PL #R253... but not sure it is the above filter...

I just have to buy right the first time as I do not get money often..
Saving for a 300.00 filter is not a problem.. I can do that if need be.. but I have to know from the pros what is been tested and is really a good choice. I always, ALWAYS post on forums and take the advice of people when buying items... i.e, my 24-70, my 70-200...my 50mm..

All I bought only after posting and asking questions. All have been good choices to this day.

If anyone can tell me what they think is the best polarizer, model, name, all I need to save up and get one.. I will do that. The beauty of having a 24-70, and the 70-200 both are 77 mm!

Marumi makes a very well regarded filter. I have a single coated B+W as well as the Kaeseman and can't tell the difference, though admittedly, I've done no formal testing between them. The Singh-Rays are not coated at all to my knowledge.

PS I've ordered from Maxsaver in the past too with no problem.

Well, it is 3 sections, 3 parts.

1. the filter
2. A wire ring
3.The screw to lens ring.

I had to use the filter for a shoot, after It came apart.
I seem to have misplaced the darn wire ring!

Oh ok. I have one that has come apart on me a half a dozen times. It's not too bad to put back together. Of course the times it separates are never good for fixing the filter. I've moved on to a B+W.
