what is your budget?

hoya is generally best bang for buck

and usually brand wars take place over cameras, not filters la hurhur

For me it's B+W and nothing else. I used to be a Hoya user but due to it's 'harder-to-clean' nature, i switched to B+W and never regretted since.

when you are talking about Best bang for bucks, its definitely Marumi... their slim 77mm CPL cost only 70+SGD in China... if older from ebay, its about 90SGD+ including shipping. :thumbsup:
and yes, it performs as well as the Hoya Pro1 slim, if not better

I was at Cathay MS the other day when the salesperson promoted the panasonic polarizer to me. According to him, it is a slim one with multi-coated and it has a thread for the front len cover to be fitted. The price is $300!! But they are selling at $190 now. Any comment on this panasonic polarizer?

Anyway, the B+W one, 72mm, is seliing for $215.

:think:, still safer to get the common brand... Hoya, B+W, Kenko(Kenko offer one of the best value in SG)

since the diff in price between the panasonic (at offer price) and B+W is not significant, i'd go for the B+W any day. the testimonials given by those who use it = :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
