If you are going to spend up to $1,700 for a lens, why nickel and dime the filter?
The only filters I use are the the B+W polarizer or a neutral density filter on occasion.
I agree, no need to nickle and dime a filter when I am spending so much on the lens.
Ok, so I will definetly not go with Tiffen, Canon, or even Hoya.
So I have decided to take Boku's advice, but how do I decied between B + W, Heliopan, and Singh-Ray? I looked up prices and here's what I found:
Singh-Ray LB Warming Polarizer $210 (does not indicate if it is circular or not)
B + W Circular Polarizer Glass Filter Slim $110
B + W Kaesemann Circular Polzrizer Glass Filter Slim $175 (what is Kaesemann?)
Heliopan Circular Polarizer Glass Filter slim $126
Heliopan Kaesemann Circular Polarizer Glass Filter $273
Heliopan SH-PMC Circular Polarizer Glass Filter $178 (what is SH-PMC?)
I will use the Canon 70-200mm lens mainly to shoot Landscape and aviation (airplane taking off/landing etc.) so Circular Polarizer is defeintely a must for me as it intensifies the clouds and the sky. But how do I determine which of the filters above is going to be the best for me?
