has the Hoya 77mm Circular Polarizing Pro 1 Digital Multi-Coated Glass Filter
for $140 shipped - a good quality filter at a good price. Update:
After posting this deal, I received this note from a reader:
"Amazon has the same filter for $99
My response was similar to this:
I saw that too – but I’m concerned about the super low price along with a retailer, PlusDigUSA, that I don’t recognize. Crawford's Superstore and danicamera are also unknown-to-me retailers listed on that page with the same price. Most specifically, I’m concerned that, if these are the same specific filters, the product could be counterfeit – a big problem in the filter market right now.
In another listing on Amazon.com
, Crawford's Superstore (again), has this filter for $139.99. I am not familiar with this retailer – and am wondering why they are selling on both pages with significantly different pricing if the item is identical.
The third page on Amazon.com for this filter
is from a retailer named Dbroth. I have heard of this retailer before - they are likely trustworthy. Their price is the normal $186.00 - though they include a useful LensPen and a blower. Adorama has the same $186.00 price
I fully trust that B&H is selling the real filter – and the price $140.00 appears to be a good one to me. Hopefully that clarifies this question.
