Yesterday i was shooting a property when the homeowner passed by while i was putting the CPL away into the case, and there i dropped the filter down onto the Marble floor, it cracked in half. :cry: I will be ordering a new filter soon from maxsaver. It ruined my day, but i am thankful it wasnt anything else.

I'd still shoot with that, doesn't really show up in the picture. :P Might flare a little bit more though.

My initial thoughts. You're probably not going to see much difference except for when shooting in the sun...

Lensrentals has shown that even a smashed front element can still produce a quality shot, but it will be prone to flaring.

Now, since the CPL sits in front of the lens glass, that effect may be increased, but I'd certainly try shooting with it anyway, as long as you can still safely screw it on and take it off.

Well I can show solidarity. I didn't crack my CPL but the dent in the ring has now made it impossible to rotate so it's basically useless. I just put down the cash for a replacement but I bought the Marumi as I'm pretty sure I'm going to break it again.

The ring is fine, its only the glass that's cracked. :(. I will not substitute for the B+W KSM CPL. I LOVED it.

This site (external link) is the reason I bought the Marumi. I figure that for half the price of the B&W, it's worth a shot.

Cool. Hope you like it. If i end up buying a new one (which i think i will since i don't think a shattered filter will do me any good) i will get another B+W.

If you paid for it with a credit card check that you don't have some sort of loss/damage coverage for a year.

I hope you're kidding. If dust (glass dust) falls off the filter and get between the lens and filter and shake around, they could potentially scratch the coating off your outer lens element.
