Anyone use one of these new Hoya HD Polarizers?

Just received it from Amazon. Going to test this out next week up in ID and WY to see how it compares to other Polarizers....



・ High Transparency & High Durability UV Absorbing Film
25% Greater Light Transmission than Standard Polarizing Film
HOYA | The Difference is Clear

Please do that, I've heard good things about Hoya polarizers but no side by side testing yet.

I've used Hoya and BW for years, and have never seen much difference in light transmission and quality. What got me was the idea that this one allows 25 percent more light to be transmitted through the filter.
I'll do some tests in full auto to see the differences in auto settings picked by the camera between this and other polarizers.

Took three pictures for a test the first day camping. Filter is noticeably not as dark as my other polarizer filters. It appears from my non-scientific, seat of the pants three photos, there is a one-third stop difference between filters.

All photos were revised from 300 resolution to 96 and saved for internet/web via Photoshop. That's it!

Being a polarizer filter, the adjustment, in my case, may not be 100 percent exact, but they look the same.

All photos taken with a Nikon D700, with a NIKKOR AF-S 24-70 F/2.8G EDIF ZOOM, set to 24mm with ISO locked at 200; shooting in aperture priority. Lens was aimed at 208.13 degrees (SSW).
At 24mm, this filter always gives a slight vignetting on the corners as shown.

This photo is from a standard type Hoya Polarizer. Standard in light transmission as with all other polzarizers, and also standard in depth of the filter ring.
F-stop: f11
Shutter speed: 1/60s


Photo taken with new style Hoya Filter. No vignetting.
F-stop: f11
Shutter speed: 1/80s


Photo taken with new Hoya Filter.
F-stop: f13
Shutter speed 1/60s





The sky in the first photo is a bit darker then in the other two photos. However, the glare from the water, and there was a lot of glare since the sun was just over my left shoulder, was cancelled by both filters equally.
Didn't test on the strength of the glass and hopefully, don't plan on that type of test anytime in the near future.

And, the lens cap does fit, but since the lip area of the filter is smaller than compared to a normal size filter, you have to be careful in placing it on the filter (make sure it is locked in place).
