Could someone recommend some high end brands of circular polarizer. It would be for my 24 F2.8 is. 58mm filter size. Transmission would be an important feature for me

Thanks

Heliopan
B+W

Kasemann construction.

I just bought a 58mm B+W Kasemann MRC Nano Pro, and at peak polarization it cuts one and a 1/3rd stop.

B+W. Nuff said.

I bought a B + W polarizer for my 24mm f/2.8, and it works very well.

I'm interested by Tiffen's HT CPL filters. I'm tempted to order one to try it. Does anyone have any experience with those?

The only bad thing I have ever heard about B+W, is that they are expensive.
With good planning filters are like tripods - you only buy once.

Pick up the Marumi filters and save some money of the B+W. You will not notice any difference. I use both and see zero difference other than the price.

Also, stay away from Hoya. I've had two of them fall apart on me. Very cheaply made.
