Strengths:    Thin Frame,

HARDENED GLASS 4 times the breaking strength in ANSI standardized testing (ANSI Z80.3 : 2001),

Specialized coatings that are not just water-proof to repel water spots but also hardened to be scratch and stain resistant.

Weaknesses:    The loss of 1 stop

Bottom Line:   
HOYA 67 MM Digital HD CPL Filter.
I purchased one of these for my nikon AF18-135 lens which is used mostly for landscape and general walk around photos . I am very pleased with the performance of this filter. I do notice in AP mode the camera shutter speed drops down one stop.

I use the filter outdoors in Colorado where it is extremely dusty and I am always in and near streams and lakes. I am continously cleaning Dust and water spots from this fitler. It clean very easily and shows no signs of scratchs.
