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.
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.
Excerpt: As this is the only circular polarizer I have used I can't really compare it to others. I acquired it for use in wildlife photography in a marsh situation, birds primarily, both in the water and against the sky. It worked beautifully. The photos came out considerable better with the filter than without. With the filter colors had a much nicer chromatic range, very little glare, and the blues for the sky and water were much enhanced. I found it very easy to use.
