I think it was mentioned before, but I have the B&W non-multi coated and have not noticed any issues with the final images. I use it quite a lot on a 12-24 and have only noticed a few times when the effect was not even. Usually this was due to an improper rotation of the CPL. I would image though at 10mm it may be more noticeable.

Spend money for a good filter, but it does not necessarily have to be the most expensive. I'd just stick to the top brand names.

Kaesemann isn't the only option for multicoated CPLs. B+W makes non-Kaesemann MRC circular polarizers. The B+W MRC 58 mm CPL is $93.50 at B&H; the 67 mm is $117. If you're looking for a CPL for your 10-20, however, bear in mind that it'll give you a very uneven effect across a clear sky since that lens covers such a wide AoV that you'll be able to see the difference between a CPL at right angles to the sun and one aimed along the line of the sun. For that you'd be better off with a graduated ND filter (square, not rectangular) to hold back the sky.

I'm a little confused by the last sentence here, why do you need a square GND rather than a rectangular in this situation?

I'm in the process of building out my kit with a Lee holder and GND's and am trying to decide on a CPL so understanding this will help in my decisions.

Thanks.
Mickey

Just noticed that myself. I've always thought rectangular GND's were superior to square, if only for the added flexibility (able to use with low horizons or as a straight ND, etc.). Maybe he means a Lee style mount as opposed to cokin P? No idea...

I am curious. We'll just have to wait for Jon to see this and respond I guess.

Sorry - should have been "not round". Edited.

Agreed. I spent a lot of time looking at that when I bought my Marumi. I have the Super DHG (grabbed it off ebay for like $95) and it has been fantastic thusfar.

Just started researching a CPL for my new Tokina 12-24mm and learned about the Marumi in this thread. Also read the test review link posted earlier in the thread. So I put a Marumi in my Cart at Amazon, and will probably complete the order in the next couple of weeks. It's $79.

Still reading some comments in the meantime, but I think the Marumi will be my choice.

Thanks for the clarification, Jon. I should have realized it was probably just a slip of the fingers :) since it didn't make sense.
