Just got this lens yesterday so I took some shots around the yard. All are handheld at ~200-270mm, wide open. I'm pretty happy so far.

Good CPL for PZD?

As some of you may recall, I had some issues with my Tamron PZD when using a cheap UV filter. The filter caused all shots to appear very soft or out of focus. Well, I'm running into the same issue with my CPL filter.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good CPL to use with the PZD version of this lense? I'm trying to keep in a reasonable price range, but if a more expensive filter is going to work, I'll spend the money. The one I have currently is a cheap Targus filter, don't know if that's the problem (though it worked fine on other lenses).

Also, has anyone else had issues with filters on this lense? Or is it just my copy?? Or just my cheap filters?

This is the only lens I have with filters - a UV that is on all the time and a Hoya CPL that is used intermittently. Have not noted any problems. It is not the PZD version.

Thanks bobobird. I am considering ordering a Hoya CPL and seeing if it works. If not, I can always send it back I suppose.

I still don't understand why these filters would work with one lense and not another. I may play around with manually focusing and try to figure out if it has something to do with throwing off AF or some weird optics issue.

I am curious to hear if anyone with the PZD version has seen issues. Maybe there's a difference with the glass elements between the original and newer PZD version.

I have a B+W MRC (multi-coat) F-Pro Clear filter that I keep on the 18-270 PZD all the time, except when I swap it with a B+W MRC circular polarizer filter. The CPL filter (this is not the 'slim' version) costs about $100. I did some focus tests with and without the filters and noticed no difference at all. I find the CPL hard to adjust with the lens hood on, but I guess that is usual. Other than that, I think it works very well.

^^^ nice pics.

I got mine back from Tamron. Warranty repair. The zoom ring rubber got very loose over the years, granted I've taken probably 40-50K images with it. Also, my AF ring was a little sticky.
They fixed it and also cleaned it under warranty. Gotta love the 6 year warranty! :)
