Just make sure you don't den the cpl filter by accident,then it will be jammed..many accounts of filter getting stucked due to knocks and bumps to it,distorting the screw thread in some way.
There is 3 or 4 types of B+W, a lot of people get confused.
I think the 1st one is B+W CPL, then B+W SLIM CPL, B+W SLIM CPL MRC, B+W KSM MRC CPL SLIM...
lol... MRC ones are better
Well, if you can afford it then why not?
Plus, I had been using the most reasonable Hoya 77mm CPL, the quality and material compared with my current B+W Kasemann MRC is sure a bit difference. Just remember to buy a good filter pouch, I hate to take it off from boxes, maybe i'm careless. I had previously smashed the Hoya at Barcelona. Last week, I just dropped the Kenko NDX400 on the road, take god it didn't smash! :| Just a scratch on the ring.
well, not surprise its not crack or wat... I dropped my filter down 14floor, yes 14... and only the ring got bent, the glass is intact as it is...
as for buying the best, most ppl probably don really need one, a normal multi-coat would do more than enough for most cases...
When your filters are stuck, just exert a slight pressure from the top and turn it. There isn't much point trying to release the stuck filter the same way you put it on because you will be putting the pressure on the threads, making the filter fit tighter than ever. Its common sense.
Is it alright to leave the polariser on the whole time? Was thinking of using it as a "protector" for my lens element, as if a UV filter.
Will there be moments where my shots be affected even if i turn the cpl to the minimum effect?
There is this CPL test and comparison done recently by Lenstip.com. Might be worth a read.
Now who sells Marumi DHG CPLs? or Fujiyama CPL?
So... who sells them then?
Nikon F3HP FM2N Rollei 35 and .......... :)
A couple of persons have PMed me asking about my Marumi filters - I've got two neutral density and one CPL DHG one. I'm not an expert in filter criticism, but if I can find some time this weekend or soon, I'll take some day pictures with and without the filter and let peeps see.
