I use Hoya HD series filters. They are tougher than normal filters and are easy to clean. Much easier vs. a couple of the Pro1 Digitals I have. I can recommend them and they are not much more expensive than the Pro1 and good quality.

I personally recommend Hoya Pro1 Digital.

these are also very good but much more of a pain to clean than the B+W ones i have both

I haven't used Hoya's filter.  I am just curious why Hoya's filter is difficult to clean?

hi,
I've been reading in this forum for a pretty long time now and just registered to answer that ;) I don't own any Hoya Pro1 but I'm using three of the Hoya HD filters and I'm really pleased with them...nothing negative to say 'bout them :)

Welcome!

FYI, Hoya's HD line has a different front coating than the Pro1 and S-HMC lines.  The HD coating is much more like the B+W MRC - repels oils and doesn't streak when wet-cleaned.  The same is not true for the other Hoya lines.

Thank you! :)
I already expected something like that. That's why I chose the HDs over the Pro 1s.
