    Exclamation Hoya PAL Identifier- Where to find a current list of PAL identifier.

    Can anyone tell me what does it mean on Hoya ID Mystyle lens when it has markings of MB 4L or MB41?
    Also what is a good resource for a current PAL identifier? My lab wants $59 for one. Any helpful advice would be appreciated.

    Josh

    It means Mystyle, 14 mm corridor, material (1)...See list provide by Hoya.

    I would negotiate the price with my lab, and depending on your volume, they might credit back the cost of the identifier if you purchase xx.xx over several months, or consider it the cost of "doing wach -a do"

    Admittedly Tony doesn't have everything on there . . . yet. Cut out charts are available also.
    There are rules. Knowing those are easy. There are exceptions to the rules. Knowing those are easy. Knowing when to use them is slightly less easy. There are exceptions to the exceptions. Knowing those is a little more tricky, and know when to use those is even more so. Our industry is FULL of all of the above.
