From the manufacturer
Hoya traces its beginnings back to Tokyo Optical Glass Manufacturing, established in November 1941 by the brothers Yamanaka.
Optical glass requires highly sophisticated manufacturing technology compared to other types of glass, and at that time it was the most technologically advanced industry.
HOYA - The Clear Advantage
Not all filters are coated. However all Hoya filters are, and the Pro-1 range are multi-coated so try a HOYA Digital Multi-Coated filter and see how the benefit of substantially reduced reflections can improve your image.
Reduced internal reflections mean a clearer image with greater contrast.
Attach and Protect
Not only will you see an improvement to image quality resulting in less time spent post production, also the front element of your expensive lens is protected against accidental damage.
Glass Formation Technologies
Hoya produces more than 100 different varieties of optical glass, working from a proprietary “recipe book” that contains over 50,000 different ways to manufacture glass. Hoya carefully selects the purest materials from around the globe, and combines them in a multitude of ways to create an endless variety of glass products with optical characteristics that precisely match market needs.
Digital multi-coated filters greatly reduce the appearance of lens flare and ghosting caused by reflections.
Black Almite Frame
Filters feature a black matte aluminum satin finish almite frame which reduces reflections.
Black Rimmed Glass
These filters are equipped with black rimmed glass to reduce the chance of light reflecting off the edge.
Low Profile Frame
Ultra thin filter frames to help avoid vignetting on super wide angle lenses are also designed to hold a lens cap (not applicable on Close-Up 3 filter).

I must admit that buying a filter is not by any means an easy feat. The range on websites such as Hoya are not by any means easily distinguishable.
Would be nice if manufacturers use a table to identify the key differences between each of the types.
Anyway, back to this Pro-1 Digital UV filter, it's very good.
I read some of the reviewers complaining about smears etc. on the filter. If you handle with care you'd be ok.
To make sure it's cleaned properly I've found its best to use a soft lint-free cleaning cloth. Microfibre cloth MAY be too harsh.
The filter screws onto Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens very easily. Unscrewing it is also very easy. Keep the protective case to hand and always put it in there if the filter were to be removed.
The Hoya 72mm Pro-1 Digital UV Screw in Filter is very good because it has:
Digital multi-coated filters to greatly reduce the appearance of lens flare and ghosting caused by reflections.
black matte aluminum satin finish almite frame which is designed to reduce reflections.
I quite like the black rimmed glass which is designed to reduce the chance of light reflecting off the edge.
The Ultra thin filter frames help to avoid vignetting (especially for super wide angle lenses - not an image sue with Primes), the thin frame is also designed to hold a lens cap easily.
In summary, the look and feel, the functionality, the ease of use, and the quality of the glass are all good.
This is another example of a nice Hoya product. Simple, metal ring filter, and nice and thin to miminise the risk of vignetting. I keep a filter on the front of all my lenses and when the DSLR fell on concrete some months ago (despite being in a bag - which is another story) the filter took most of the impact, such that it smashed the glass in the filter rather than the glass in the lens. Plus it keeps dust off the optics of the actual lens.
I believe the "Pro-1 Digital" bit is supposed to have additional coatings to minimise reflections. I've never compared it to 'ordinary' Hoya filters so I can't say how much difference it makes. If you're shooting straight into bright light you will inevitably get some flare, but I can't normally tell there's a filter on the front. And at the £10-15 price, you might as well get the Pro-1 anyway!
There are merits in both arguments. If you were to try and navigate a path between these opposing views, you'd buy the best UV filter you could for your money (which usually means going expensive).
The Hoya filters are comparatively expensive but, to my eye at least, have little impact on focusing time and reduced image quality.
The quality of the Pro 1 46mm UV filter I just received was awful and only it was straight from Amazon is have thought it was a fake, the glass!! Stick blurry crud that wobbled and moved within the frame, really surprised I've now had to form out for a B+W which I resent given they've always been so similar to Hoya for standard screw protection glass but at 3x the price. Needless to say B+W filter was fine.
