  • Excerpt: Being in northern MI we haven't had the sun to try this out. Will be heading to the caribbean soon and I'm sure that it will get a lot of use.

  • Excerpt: The first thing all amatuers should get for their lens is a polarizer. Not only will it give more color saturation, but it will protect the lens from dust, dirt, and fingerprints. After 40 years of photography, I've never been disappointed by Hoya. They make a superb lens at a decent price.

  • Excerpt: you gotta love these polarizers. screw them on and with very little adjustment, these babies work great. couldn't be easier. Color saturation seems to be enhanced, and contrast appears better.

  • Excerpt: I found this polarizer to be extremely efficient. When two polarizers are crossed, 100% light cancellation is achieved if the polarizers are of the highest quality. I achieved near-100% cancellation by crossing this HOYA with a Sumitomo linear ploarizer. Construction is equally impressive.
