Nice Polarizer, but Expensive!

  • Excerpt: This is a really nice and well made polarizer. I haven't had any issues with it and the clarity is awesome. I haven't gotten to really play around with it too much, the weather hasn't been very sunny. But from what i have seen the polarization effect isn't as pronounced as I would have liked. But that could be my fault more than the filter. I was just hoping for more drastic polarization.
  • Pros: Clear Optics, Easily Mounted, Firm Mount, Strong Construction

OK but extra expensive

  • Excerpt: I bought this 77 mm CPL based upon the manufacturer's adds proclaiming that this CPL had superior light transmission. Compared to my older Pro Master HGX CPL (2461) there is little if any difference. They are nearly twins and make similar quality claims. Camera light meter shows no increase in light transmission into the camera. However, the Pro master is a bit cheaper and you might want to look at it too.
  • Pros: Accepts Additional Filter, Clear Optics, Thin
  • Cons: No Superior Light Transmi

Great optical quality, but...

  • Excerpt: I use it as a polarizer- no explanation needed, it works good for chopping glare. Only downside is it gets stuck on the front of the lens or whatever other filter you stack it on and is super hard to remove.

  • Excerpt: IMHO,a CP is a must have. Having said that, at my level of photography, I can't tell the optical difference between different price points. This one works, goes on easilly & turns smoothly. Results are great.
  • Pros: Easy To Use

Very well constructed, high quality

  • Excerpt: The Hoya HD is very well constructed and with high quality. The rim is very thin and does not create extra vignetting (maybe a little for wide angle lens). The rotation of the rim is very smooth. Compare to my previous polarizer, it reduces about 1/2 stop of light loss, which is another plus. And the HD coating is so much easier to clean compare to Hoya Pro1D. In terms of the optical quality, I did not see any difference between this and a B+W MRC belongs to my friend.
