intending to get one too....

did a little research and found that it is more advisable to get bigger one, like 77mm and then use step down/up adapter ring so that the polariser can be used over more lenses...

like to hear more advises too....

Anyone knows the price of 77mm Cir. Pol?
+- cant remember the exec figure. B+W is abt $180 (non slim), tin its around $250 for slim, Nikon Cir Pol II is $210. Correct me if I'm mistaken...

I guess a Hoya CPL would be of reasonable standard & price. A 67mm would cost abt $60?

I've never used a stepping ring, so can't help u with that :embrass:
