What CPL do you recommend for the 24 - 70 LII? Looks like selection is large with B&W, Hoya, and Heliopan at the top of the line. Would like to know what others are using for this lens and the experience.

Each of these brands have multiple filters. What is best?

Thanks for your help.

Here's something to try...

Go to greentoe.com (external link) and signup.

Find this on their site: B+W 82mm XS-Pro Kaesemann Circular Polarizer with Multi-Resistant Nano Coating

Offer $175 and use WELCOME25 for a $25 off discount code at checkout. If your offer gets accepted like mine did you'll get a $250+ top of the line 82mm CPL for $150 shipped after your rebate gets processed.

This is arguably the best CPL made for under $400.

Worked like a charm... no hassles, no issues, no problems. I'm looking at the CPL on my Canon 24-70mm MkII right now. The guy who runs the place is Andrew and he's great. Kept me posted about my offer and made sure everything went smoothly. There's a long thread in the Market Watch Forum here on POTN about them... GreenToe.com thread you can check out. I got the B+W CPL from Unique Photo who is an authorized retailer for B+W for $175 and a while later I got a $25 rebate from greentoe.com so net price was $150 shipped. That's $103 less then the current price listed on Amazon for the exact same item.

just realized their 82mm version is no longer in stock. :( how often do they restock anyway? and do they strictly ship within U.S only? i tried to checkout and it only allows me to select US states.
