Spelling mistakes are pretty common, especially for products originating from a less than "international-grade" companies from non-European countries.

It says 'Licesed" on both my Hoya HD filter's boxes. I bought one from a brick and mortar store in France and the other one from an Australian Ebay seller. They've performed very well. Even if they were to be fake, I would have no complaint because they actually do their job without degrading IQ.

I bought a HD Cir-PL 82mm off eBay Hong Kong seller and mine also say "licesed". I thought I bought a fake knock off, freaked out, and did a search and found this thread.

I guess it is not fake, since stuff bought from brick and mortar has the same misspelling?

In terms of the quality, it looks just like any of my Hoya filters. super transparent, and polarizing does work very well. This is my first HD polarizer and it does block less light as my Super HMC version, as it was advertized. I think this is genuine.

I bought Hoya HD UV from sighterz at www.sighterz.comexternal link with exactly the same wrong typo.I am pretty convinced it is genuine with the bar code # 24066 05106. The thread fits on my Tokina 11-16 spot on alright. Hoya is made by Tokina. You can tell/feel the genuinity of this filter when they are matched together.

What keep me wonder is why on front of the box some writes mm at the filter size, some just a double digit without mm, some just UV, some UV(0).

p.s: BTW, I am a newbie. Just plunged into DSLR with EOS 7D , Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX , Canon Speedlite 580EX II, Demb Flash Bracket and diffuser, Kata bag DR- 467i , Manfrotto Bogen 7302YB M-Y 7302 Tripod, Herringbone heritage Hand Grip Camera Strap,other bits and pieces.

Still to come:

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L II USM

Hey! Atention, they are Fake Hoya HD filters on ebay!

I purchaced one from this seller: http://www.ebay.com ...s-protector-/121360744168external link

The Hoya filter is quite diferente from the original:
-The package is almost equal (they also have the typo), the black color is diferente, in the original package is mate black and in the fake is bright black.
- The filter plastic boxis also almost equal but they have imperfections compared with the original box.
- The filter is very diferent, diferent reflective color, more reflections in the fotos (flares), the side marks (lettering) in the original is made by paint and in the fake is made like by lazer. The fake lens has some small dust particles from factory. The original lens has no dust from factory.

Doggone it, 4 years later after this heads up the first time, you would have thought the counterfeits would be no more. Who would have thought this? And from a zero feedback seller? ;)

This is why I bought by filters at BH. It's not worth the risk to get things on ebay unless you're looking to buy a fake.

I recently bought a canon 100mm macro lens, and so needed a 67mm HD Protector filter, Not using the one on my 70 - 300, I borrowed it for the new lens and ordered another one from Amazon. ( not Amazon themselves, but Amazon Market place, the seller has their own site and also sells on eBay, It was £25, a lot cheaper than rrp.

The new one arrived today, and on inspection was very different from my first one, The coating on the metal mount is mat black, whereas the first is gloss black, I had difficulty in screwing the new filter in, and it didn't seem to have as long a thread as the original.

I've read that fakes are often lighter than genuine ones , so I put both on a chemical balance, but the new one was a good bit heavier than my original!

I have in all 2 x 67mm and one 77mm HD Protectors, the 77 and my first 67 both have "licesed" on the box, but the new one has "licensed" also on the new one the "HD GLASS" description is different, and so is the manufacture details. Now Kenko Tokina ( see pic) I'm wondering if the new company has made changes, I have to say, I prefer the original shiny black one, the thread seems to fit altogether better.

Angling the filters ( either side is the same) to see the reflection of my ceiling light, both the 67's have a definite greenish tinge, the 77 is perfectly neutral, as is my 77 B&H.

I would appreciate any comments on this please.

Thanks a lot ...Pete

Just an update to the above post,
I contacted Hoya in Japan, pointing out my concerns regarding the mat/glossy paint issues and the elected colour, and this is what they said, it's certainly put my mind at ease

cheers...Pete


We thank you for your inquiry to our products.

We would like to inform you that both products are genuine.
There were gloss and matting frame by the HD filter size for the
previous product (
i).
The recent products are unified all to a matte frame.
A company's name is being also corrected in KenkoTokina.

The cause the reflected color looks different is because the reflectivity by the coating doesn't become uniform just a little in all band.
It's less than 1 %, but the reflectivity is different in the numerical value depending on bands a little by coated situation.
When the red reflectivity value is high slightly, it looks pale pink.
When the green reflectivity value is high slightly, it looks pale green.

Thank you for your continuous support.

Best regards,
Ken H.

Tokina/HOYA supporting unit, Kenko Tokina Co., Ltd
