    Get the Hoya HD CPL as the glass is thinner and you won't see any vignetting effect. I'm using both the 72mm as well as 77mm HD CPL. Do note that the polarising effect of Hoya isn't that fantastic as you'd see from B+W though. Hey but it works!

    i use a Hoya HD CPL. 52mm should not be too hard to find. i bought my 67mm from cathay at marina square. instead of going shop to shop, why not just call. recently, i walked into a shop on 6th floor of sim lim.. bought a 67mm CPL for my good friend.. not HOYA, think it was tokina. cheap and not too bad. anyway, that shop has a huge range. why not walk in and take a look? think it's called orient photo.
    JustOneSmile.that's all i need..

    imho, CPL is one-time purchase for most of us. go for the best if you have the budget. preferably slim type and a large diameter.

    I have only one CPL - the B+W Kaesermann 77mm slim. The polarizing effect seems stronger than the Hoya I previously own, but frankly speaking the effect isn't day-and-night difference but there is sure a huge price gap between the two.

    Using the Pro1D CPL. Works well for me with no visible vignetting & cheaper than the B+W.

    Not true. Kenko and Hoya are the same company. Hoya is meant mostly for the Japanese market while Kenko is for overseas, e.g., Kenko Pro 1D = Hoya Pro 1D. Kenko series is significantly cheaper even though they are optically identical.

    THK is the general name of the company: Tokina-Hoya-Kenko. One big happy family.

    No. They are identical. My work is in the optics area and we have tested them.

    The reality is that high end Hoya (e.g. HD series) is NOT inferior to B+W as far as circular polarization is concerned. There may be differences in color rendition, but I've yet to verify that.

    thanks bro's
    Go for HD. Reasons (i) thin so vignetting is avoided (ii) HD surface is easier to clean and won't get scratched easily (iii) avoid color cast from the Pro 1D series

    HD series is better. See above.

    I thought Kenko was for the Japanese domestic market and Hoya is for the international market?

    Yes you are right Kenko is for domestic market and Hoya is for international market. Kenko is also very popular in China too.
