UV filter N or 0 sufix


Recommended Posts

Looking at UV filters on fleeBay, aware of the cheap'o 'dont touch with a barg pole' types. So looking at Hoya, reasonable prices, if you are prepare to serch, any one know the significance of the bracketed sufix (0) or (N) after 'UV' ie; HSM UV(N) what does N or 0 indicate?

Thanks 'LittleSusy', this is what I have gleaned from Google:

 

. . . "There are 2 different UV from HOYA - UV(N) & UV(0). AFAIK, UV(N) has been marketed in Asia only because it has inferior glass quality, and much cheaper than UV(0). UV(0) uses the same high quality glass as other high quality filters. And yes, both are available in HMC, and the situation is confusion." . . . And that there is a colour tint on the '0' type . . . perhaps, erring towards a combined 'UV/sky filter'?

 

Plus there is a load of waffel, that seems to be trying to muddy the water, I like the simplicity of the above? :D
