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.
Pros: Clear Optics, Easily Mounted, Firm Mount, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Twice I have had this product literally come apart. The threading separated from the parts. The first time Hoya admitted they had a problem and replaced the product the second time they ignored me. The first occasion the threading fell off and would not mount to the camera lens.
Excerpt: The Hoya HD2 New series of filters, these are filters made with extremely high quality optical glass that is chemically altered during its molten state to become FOUR times stronger than the glass would be otherwise.The "HD2" in the Hoya HD2 Circular Polarizer filter by Hoya name doesn't stand for...
Summary: Not a great deal to say about a piece of black glass : ) It blocks light and appears to indeed be 9 stops. Based on a my handful of tests there doesn't appear to be any strong colour shift when using it which is an improvement on cheaper ND filters I've used in the past.
