    intending to get one too....

    did a little research and found that it is more advisable to get bigger one, like 77mm and then use step down/up adapter ring so that the polariser can be used over more lenses...

    like to hear more advises too....
    Hope to learn from everyone here....

    I guess a Hoya CPL would be of reasonable standard & price. A 67mm would cost abt $60?

    I've never used a stepping ring, so can't help u with that
