Which filters for FA31 & FA77

Just wondering which filters are best for mainly B&W work.....I was thinking of B&W filters with UV MRC,& Nano coating. Any suggestions?

I would get the highest-quality UV filter just to protect your lenses and not screw up the picture.

Amazon.com: RainbowImaging Pro 1D super slim 49mm UV (Ultra Violet) Multi Coated Glass Filter, (Glass made in Japan, same class as HOYA Pro 1 series, 3rd Brand): Camera & Photo

I concur - B&W MRC filters seem to outperform Pentax SMC filters. At least with Pentax SMC filters I do catch flare on my lenses occasionally and seemingly not so with B&W MRC filters.

I primarily use Hoya HMC and S-HMC filters. They have good coatings and are decently priced the last time I checked.
