Filter Comparison: Marumi Pro Digital vs DHG Super

I found some sellers offering Marumi "Pro-Digital" CPL filters with brass rings ... any idea how they stack up against the Marumi DHG Super CPL (which I own and which are very good):

Brass 62mm 62 CPL Digital Pro Filter Lens Marumi MC Thin Slim Wide Japan NEW | eBay

vs

Marumi 49mm CPL 49 Super DHG MC Slim Thin PL.D Filter Circular Polarizer Japan | eBay

Cheers.

I cannot comment on the optical properties. But the brass is interesting, as it avoids the tendency for the usual aluminium mount to stick to the lens' filter thread. Good to know, that B+W, Heliopan aren't the only ones to use brass.

Yes, that is what originally sparked my interest in these ... I would be good to know whether the optical quality at least matches that of the "DHG Super" models.

Amazon does list the "PRO" filters as multicoated, however I could not find any mention of these on marumi's website ... are ex-pentax marketing guys working there now

I did a bunch of research on Marumi filters about 8 months ago and do not recall seeing any reference to these Brass CPL Digital Pro filters. In looking around the internet they appear to be a new product offering from Marumi. All I can say is that each of the Marumi filters I have purchased has been excellent in use and the reason I purchased them were the very high ratings in various analyses by reviewers combined with their price relative to other brands in the same quality range.

I am in the market for CPL, and face the same question as you...
Super DHG or the Brass 'Pro Digital'.

Have you bought the brass version, and is the brass version also have "Super DHG"?
I have use the Super DHG and like them very much - super easy to clean compare to Hoya filter.
