Wait for a used B+W UV MRC to pop up on here, you can get them fairly cheap used usually.
By pure coincidence, I spotted a used (9 condition) 77 mm B+W UV MRC filter on B&H this morning and I picked it up for $41 + $4 shipping. How's that for price? (This is my 2nd used purchase from B&H, I picked up a 9 condition Ultrasharp monitor 2 weeks back and it came with a slightly battered box but everything inside was like brand new!)

CPLs are fantastic, but they do decrease the light by up to two stops, depending on how strongly you have the filter set. Even at the zero setting they still decrease light input, but I'm not sure by how much. Enough that it's worth taking off if you're not using it.
Depending on what I'm shooting, I practically live with a CPL on my lenses. If it's an either/or choice, I'd definitely go for a CPL.
Interesting, I've known about CPL filters but never considered having them on an almost full-time basis. I might just pick one up.

Start here: LINKYou should get MRC version of any filter you buy
Thanks, Neil posted the link earlier in the thread but your one line summary is useful (and confirms my habit/homework that MRC filters are worth the price)
