Anyone have any experience with these? Seeing some on amazon for a very tempting price.

Marumi makes good filters.

Can't vouch for this particular one. $50 for a CPL that is very slim usually means a corner got cut some where. Maybe it doesn't have the same coatings as their premium line. It will probably work. Probably won't be quite the same as their Super series.

Since it's one Prime and Amazon, you could always try it and if it doesn't produce good results, return it and have a review for everyone.

++++++++++++

I use the Marumi DHG Super, it's very good.

There's also the BreakThrough X2 that is very good for about the same price.

I think the regular price for it is 99, that's what shows in 2 filter and adorama. You are right, might as well give it a try and return if not good. Btw how do i know if it is good? Never used a cpl before. Thinking of using it on my 17-40 and 70-200.

Look for vignetting, ghosting, flare/glare, sharpness, reflections, etc. Basically if you can't tell a filter is on there, you're good. Just know that at ultrawide angles, it will have inconsistent patches (this is all CPLs) or banding.
