I saw this new series of filter in Japan:

http://www.kenko-tokina.co.jp ...8/zeta_filter_engli​sh.pdfexternal link

Kenko and Hoya are under the same parent company. I heard that the Kenko Pro1 filters are almost identical to the Hoya Pro1.

This new series of Zeta filters is clearly marketed as higher end filter then the Pro1s. They are thinner and has better transmission characteristics and causes less vignetting. Anyone know if there is a Hoya equivalent or if there is any review comparing these zeta series with other brands?

The Kenko Zeta filters are more like the Hoya HD filters, but they are different it seems.
The following website has both Hoya HD and Kenko Zeta filters for sale:

From that link one can see that the Kenko Zeta has the SHMC coating (99.7% transmission like the Hoya SHMC) They are thin, too, like the discontinued Pro 1 -- but not the same as the current Hoya Digital Pro 1 which is not thin, not SHMC but HMC coating with 97% transmission)
