Has anyone got any experience of these?

I'm looking to get a Circular Polariser for my 10-22mm. I'm using a Kenko Pro Digital Circular Polariser on my 135mm, which is pretty good, but I'm just wondering if spending that little bit more would make much difference?

Ta :)

hey look...something I can answer!

I had one of these in an 82mm size, and it worked pretty damned great!

I believe the Zeta is the top of the link kenko filter...which is just a rebranded Hoya (forgive me if I am wrong...I went Lee and haven't used regular filters since...someone please correct me if I am wrong), but unique to Japan...mostly in that it only cuts 1 stop instead of 2 like most CPLs do

again..it was about 4 years ago that I last had it, so I could be wrong :) But I do remember it was good, cleaned easily, and didn't introduce any ghosting/artifacts/haz​e or etc in to my photos

From what I remember, I think the Kenko Zeta is equivalent to the Hoya HD. This is their hardened glass series, which is extra heavy duty and easy to clean.

Yeah, I believe they are the same as the Hoya, just branded differently!

I think I might just go for it, seems to get good reviews etc :D

I have a Zeta 8ND filter and it works very well. No loss of sharpness, no additional flare, and no color cast.

I say go for it.
