    I'm on a tight budget for an ND filter.

    I'm often taking pictures at the beach and it's awfully bright. I also want to do some time lapse footage in day light with motion blur, therefore I need at least X8 (I hope that's enough...).

    If someone has experience with Hoya filter let me know if they're any good. I wish I could spend $150 on a single filter but that's out of the question.

    Is this any good:
    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Hoya-72mm-Neutral-Density-Filter/dp/B0000AIS27/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1265561022&sr=8-1"]Amazon.com: Hoya 72mm NDX8 HMC Neutral Density Filter: Electronics[/ame]

    or multi coated:
    A72ND8XGB Hoya 72mm 8X (0.9) Neutral Density Multicoated Glass Filter

    Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

    OK got that.

    I also wanted to know if Hoya is any good?
    Of course relatively to the price...

    Yes Hoya is a good manufacturer. I have several of their filters.

    Thanks for the response.
    I "only" want it for my 18-200mm Nikkor VR so I hope it wouldn't degrade that picture too much.
