Which UV?

Hey, guys. I'm tossed up between these two UV filters. I wondering if any of you have experience with either. And, if there's really a difference between the two.

Here they are.

The Tiffen filter is slightly more expensive. But is the extra 30 dollars worth it?

How about Hoya?

Standard for 43.50:

or Multi-Coated for 58.50:

Here's the whole assortment from B&H:

Since they go all the way up to $144.95 for B+W and $132.95 for Formatt (both multi-coated) I would be inclined to get Hoya Multi-Coated if I were going toward the low end.

Would there actually be a noticable difference in quality to the human eye with the hoya filter?

Douglas,

It is 100% worth buying a decent multi-coated filter, even if only UV. The main reason being that it minimizes reflections into the lens. A cheap filter will be terrible. I have a HMC super Hoya filter that I leave on my lens and it is great.

I actually picked it up cheap on ebay without a mark on it.
