I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon does crazy stuff with cookies and individualizes prices, but I was browsing and looking to replace my lost CPL and stumbled on a good sale.

Tiffen 77mm UV filter reg $55.89 is $14.84
Tiffen 77mm circular polarizer reg $150.19 is on sale for $38

Other types and sizes are also at a similar discount.

This is a SCREAMING deal if you are looking for Tiffen filters.

Thanks for that. That's some pretty heavy reading that I'll have to take a closer look at.

Hoya seems to be on sale too.

But these are not multicoated, just the very basic filters.

Let me cut to the chase...

  • do not bother consideration of the Tiffens
  • Hoya makes some good filter lines (on par with B+W), and some cheap filter lines (on par with Tiffen). Choose wisely (not the blue/green box lines)

I like cutting to the chase. And have evidently neglected my education about filters.

What would you look for if you were going to buy a new CPL? It seems that all the filters are on sale on Amazon right now and now is as good of a time to get one as any.

You would want "multi-coated" or at a absolute minimum "coated" made by Hoya, B+W, Marumi.

I would check the Amazon prices against BH Photo / Adorama. I would also suggest you also check out Greentoe and name your own price. I've gotten some filters from them that weren't screaming deals, but a few dollars off from list prices at Adorama.

Multicoated! Not single or double coated.

Light transmission spec at least 97%...preferably 99%+

In short, the good performing filters in the Ken & Christine test report.

As a good starting point... the old Lenstip testing from 2009:

If I can impose on you all to answer on last question on this thread...

What about this Hoya CPL?

That looks like a pretty good one. You get what you pay for in filters.

And $300 off... Hard to say no to that.

I have used Hoya Pro1D CPL and liked them. Slightly more expensive than these.


Current gear: One crop frame body, a couple of lenses, one flash
Wishlist: More time; better photography skills, some good glass, full-frame body.....
