Polarizing Filter?

Can anyone recommend a good polarizing filter for a canon 10-22mm and canon 17-55mm? Also does anyone have examples of beach or lake shots with and without using this type of filter? I have only ever used UV filters, basically just to protect my lenses. Is it worth getting a polarizing filter instead?

I don't have any with or without pictures. You wouldn't buy one instead of a UV filter. The polarising filter is great for taking sun glare off water and cars etc but it also reduces the light into the camera so isn't ideal for every occasion. I use a hoya pro digital one for my 17-50 2.8 tamron and it works great

B+W has better contrast & deeper blue with very noticeable 'pop' to the clouds. Hands down the best out there IMO.

I've read good reports about Marumi.

Nothing wrong with this. If you were shooting images for publication (like National Geographic) on a regular basis, "yes", perhaps spring for the really high end filters that carry high prices. But to be honest, the Hoya Pro 1 is decent and the incremental gain in a better filter is not worth the incremental increase in price.

I just received a B+W Kaesemann MRC and love it so far. I used to have a cheap (made in Philippines) Hoya that was absolute junk and a Marumi super DHG that was decent but not in the same league as the B+W. I noticed a definite color cast with the Marumi that is absent with the B+W. Additionally, the B+W mount and weather sealing is top-notch, better than any other cpol I've used. At $135 for a 77mm the Kaesemann is expensive but worth it in my opinion. No need to shell out more for the XS-Pro or overpriced brands like Heliopan and Singh-Ray.

Marumi here. Mine has been great and test reports have rated them equal to B+W.

Heya,

The processing was different, I warmed one up and cooled the other down, etc. So don't pay attention to color, it has no color cast. That was just my processing. Pay attention to what the CPL is doing, which is cutting down that glare and reflection, big time. Fantastic filter.

No CPL:

Marumi Super DHG:

Here's the Marumi Super DHG used on a 35mm, panorama of several shots, to show it's quality of transition towards the edges and angle changes.

I bought the 77mm size version, and I just use step up/down rings to use on any lens I have. This filter was $70 from Amazon. Half the cost of the popular B+W KS one. I went this route because I read a very detailed review that put all the popular CPL's to the test with examples shots, and measurements, and the Marumi basically was as good, and better in some ways, than the more expensive popular ones.

Very best,

Check prices at www.2filter.com (external link). They have a pretty goofy website, but I've dealt with them for 8 years without an issue at all. Personal service and very good prices. They're an authorized dealer for B + W, and believe it or not, B&H is not an AD for them.
