Excerpt: This is the first Hoya Filter I have used. I have used it twice and am pleased with the results. I used it with my Nikon 28-300 lens and the filter was easy to turn even with the lens hood on. I would recommend this filter to others.
Excerpt: I used this at the wedding I shot this past weekend and it made the images outside much better and the colors are amazing!! I love the look it gives for the whole scene. I can't wait until I get a chance to do some landscape with it.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
Excerpt: I could tell just by picking it up that this filter was quality. The glass is PERFECT and I have not seen a single error in any of my shots. I'm currently using it with a canon 24-105 L and the lens is just as sharp with it as it is without. No auto focus issues whatsoever.
Excerpt: I own a (Moose) warm circular polarizer filter for each lens. I appreciate this lens when photographing fall colors, especially if the colors need just a little boost. I read about Moose lenses years ago and wouldn't think about shooting landscape and fall colors without one.
Excerpt: I purchased this filter as an experiment to see if I could get my photos to appear as they do through my sunglasses. I am often disappointed when I pull over to set up the tripod and realize that the lighting is not as dramatic as it appears through polarized glasses. And this filter did the trick.
Excerpt: I am a novice photographer. Since photography is only a hobby for me, I am limited on the amount of money I can spend on resources. I needed a polarizer because I find myself shooting a lot of waterfalls and rivers where reflections were killer.
Excerpt: Like other reviews, it gets stuck on really easy - this is because the thread ring is too thin and flexible. When you press on it to remove it, you deform the ring and it binds. I've found the way to remove it is to quickly turn the filter portion and the friction there easily gets the thread ring...
