    Both are CPL


    Left 1 is the Kenko Pro1D, which I, was informed by J3:16, to have better light transmission as compared to "normal-grade" polariser. This seems to match the feedback of another forummer here somewhere.

    and then the right one is the new Hoya HD CPL

    Haha...day of coincidences;
    mine IS the wideband version!:

    P.S. I dunno what the wideband term stands for, anyway.

    All I can tell you is that Hoya HD filter are premium quality. Thin, tough, bright glass and simply no coating spots.

    The high price commands the build quality. For example Nikon CPL's very thin ring turns smoothly and is light. Unless you require the build, then go for the normal series.

    If you are willing to spend for experience, then buy different type for each lens.

    I don't know which to buy now, Hoya HD or Nikon or B+W F-pro mount CPLs. They say Hoya HD have problem of ring detaches and falls apart. Is this for real???
