I hope this is the right section to post in. Moderators, please move if needed.

April 2013, Tokyo: Marumi Optical Co., Ltd., a major name in photo/digital imaging,
introduces a new line of filters, the “EXUS” Series comprised of the EXUS Lens Protect and
EXUS Circular Polarizer, both designed specifically for digital SLR cameras. These filters
are available in 13 different diameter sizes ranging from 37mm to 82mm, and feature new
antistatic anti-reflective coating and glass-mounting system, contributing to exceptional
high-quality imaging in digital SLR photography. Naturally, although developed with
today’s digital photography requirements in mind, the EXES Series filters can also be used
on conventional film cameras.
These filters are scheduled to be made available from the end of April 2013 in Japanese
domestic market and from June/July 2013 in overseas market.

I wish more companies would make square/rectangular filters, particularly in the larger 150mm/165mm widths.

Found an ad earlier today from my local Japanese bookstore. I already purchased the new circular P.L. 82mm thread for my 24-70. This is my second Marumi filter and I was very pleased with the previous version (Super DHG polarizer).

Just my opinion but a filter company offering a "protective" filter would most likely be who you buy magic smoke from as well. a lens hood protects the lens from FOD and light flares and doesn't add additional glass to degrade the image. OTOH a good CPL is priceless.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but some pro lenses are never really 100% weather-proof until you put a filter. If that is the case, a high quality filter would be the only way to achieve high quality pictures.

and since when does weather proofing achieve high quality pictures?

Haha! No, you misunderstood me... mind you, English is not my first language so it's probably my fault. :confused:

What I meant is:

- Some lens require a filter to make the lens completely weather proof
- If you are forced to have a filter (you're going on boat or in desert, lets say), then you should have good filter quality so it doesn't degrade the image quality (like Joe stated)

High quality filters are not *that* useless... depends on the circumstance.

Makes more sense? :cool:

When your lens is actually able to function thanks to the weather proofing after a downpour as opposed to needing a trip to the doctor's? :)

Let's not get into another argument about how much UV filters protect or don't...

FYI: I've done tons of unscientific back-to-back shots with multiple lenses and have found that a high quality UV filter can indeed improve images (specifically microcontrast, which, in turn, appeared to improve sharpness, though I believe that was an "optical illusion" due to the increased contrast)...I use them on some lenses...but not all.
