Are these two filters the same?

B&H Link - http://www.bhphotovide​ …ails&Q=&sku=306​011&is=REG (external link)

And a screenshot from

HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'image/gif' | Byte size: ZERO | PHOTOBUCKET ERROR IMAGE

Are these two the same?!?

Because when I add it to my cart on the price is only $133.33. $90 +/- cheaper than B&H.

Anyone have any experience with folks seem to love them!

The BH link is that of a "digital" filter. The one you circled in red from is a non-digital filter. is a good company to deal with, except when they have to backorder your order. It then takes about full two weeks before you can get your package. Call them and specifically ask them whether they DO have the item in stock or have to backorder.

2filter is a very small company, but if they have your item it will go out by the next day, and with modest shipping charges. very good!

The SHMC Pro 1 are Hoya's best grade.

As fare as I can tell the SHMC and pro 1 have the same multicoating with the possible exception that the pro 1 have an easy clean top coat.

Also, the pro 1 are all slim filters and have a knurled edge for ease of fitting and removal.

B&H's pricing on filters is quite inflated in some circumstances.

Didn't realize the "Classic" Super HMC Pro1 is being discontinued.
