    other brands not that hard to clean, to be honest

    anyways, i don't use filters most of the time. your lens is designed to take pictures best when naked, since it was that way when they engineered it

    I suggest you make your thread title more specific the next time.

    You spent $$$ and buy a L lens, does it make sense to then put on a $5 filter? The lens is only as good as the worst piece of glass, and the filter is one piece of glass!

    air is free , that's my point

    i think most people spend too much time worrying about their gear instead of shooting.

    keeping your gear out of danger, being alert, all these count way more than a filter in terms of protection. if you don't slam your camera into a wall, you don't need filter. if you don't somehow manage to drop your camera because you did something silly, you don't need a filter.

    I prefer BMW to B+W !!
    anyway that's OT already.

    To CFM56-7B, as night86mare said, the difference is marginal. Some people do swear by the "branded" stuff, but you are the best judge whether the price is worth the perceived quality.
    Exploring! :)

    If you have friends that have other brands of CPLs, you should borrow them and try it out. The point is, if you can't tell the difference in image quality between a $200 CPL and one that cost $50, then why do you want to pay $150 more?

    Second thing, is the difference (with and without the CPL) really make that much a difference to you in a photo? How often do you use a CPL? and if the answer is not much and not very often, I would suggest you can even save that $50 and put your $200 to better use.
