    For protection and CPL, I use Kenko Pro 1 D.

    It is all personal preference la. In the end, performance wise, should be all ok. It is our photography skills that matter more than the brand of the filter.

    while I do use the B+W, Ive been doing fine with my hoya and Kenko Pro 1Ds. Im indifferent between these brands.

    B+ w for me anyday, great built quality and reliable. Most importantly it protects most of our L lenses

    "L" refers to the Luxury line of Canon lenses.

    B+W are head and shoulders above the competition IMO. I've seen what their manufacturing and engineering processes are and it's nothing short of astonishing. Worth every penny.

    That said, I don't use filters much for weddings and portraits, I rely on the lens hoods for protection and rarely have time to faff about with polarisers etc.

    Seriously just buy one good and you don't have to worry about the possibility of filters screwing up your photos. So i think it's totally worth it..

    For an newbie like me, i go for a cheap ones. When i turn into semi-pro, go for slightly better one. Turn into pro SHOULD GO FOR QUALITY. This is what i think. What's the point spending so much when are you new to photograpy. Newbie like me will sure damage cos don't know how to clean. HAIZ..

    i understand that the coating and all does reduce reflections and cause less ghosting, but i havent experienced much problems with the 'cheap' hoya filters from the basic range, except maybe some vignetting from the CPL

    Only use B+W lens. So far they deliver the most satisfying results.
