Product Description

Size: 82mm

The AGFA digital multi-coated circular polarizing (CPL) filters are the perfect compliment for your lenses. Light rays which are reflected by any surface become polarized and these high quality filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. It allows you to remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water, glass, etc. It also enables colors to become more saturated and appear clearer. It makes the sky bluer and the clouds whiter. They also protect your lens. 82mm

Customer Reviews

The ring movement is smooth and easy.
Mike
Maybe it is because of circular polarization but I am used to a sharp distinction and much crisper polarizing effects.
Matenai
It makes the faded out sky look much more blue and makes the colors in the photo more vivid.

I was initially unsure of my purchase but after receiving the Agfa CPL, I was very pleased with it & felt that I had made the correct choice . The filter is much much cheaper compared to other CPL's like Hoya but has a good build quality & glass. The reason I chose the Agfa CPL over Hoya was :

1) Cost
2) Multi-Coated
3) Huge confusion around multiple variants of the same Hoya Product with large variations in build quality ( Green series , HMC , SHMC,) and whether the baseline model is multi coated or not.

Check out my sample images that show the Agfa CPL in action , so far I've tested it in-home only with very positive results . Will update outdoor test results later.

Pros:
- Multi coating that actually works with no reflections
- Does its job of cutting our reflections very well
- Cost

Cons
- The outer ring was a bit oily due to the lubrication ...nothing that a lens cleaner & a cotton swab cant solve .

Overall very satisfied with my purchase , I would definitely recommend it to someone looking for a good multi coated CPL without wanting to spend too much money

I made a side by side comparison of the Agfa CPL with a Sigma DG wide CPL I own. The Agfa has a thicker frame, but is pretty well machined. It rotates smoothly without any problem. Optically, by naked eye, the Agfa filter appears to have a tint of orange color, and reflects light slightly stronger than the Sigma. In the real world, the Agfa filter does produce warmer pictures and is flare prone in comparison to the Sigma filter.

Agfa filters and polarizers can be had at a bargain right now. They are good quality (better than most in the price range) and a very well made. The glass is quality too. They are much thicker than Hoya versions, but at better value.

I replaced 2 polarizing filters that made me refocus after polarizing. And one of them came apart. This AGFA filter is much better made, moves smoothly without effecting focus, and produces perfect results!

Size Name: 77mm Verified Purchase
I initially rated this 5 stars. It performed quite well on my Canon 24-105 on a cropped sensor, physically felt well-constructed, and the ring rotated smoothly without being loose. On a full-frame, this polarizer's ring is too thick and appears in the frame at 24mm, but is not a huge deal since zooming in even a tiny bit or cropping the image later will get around this.

Occasionally, the ring can be stuck pretty tightly and can be hard to remove. I've found that turning the outer ring counterclockwise, as if you're unscrewing the outer ring, will loosen the inner ring and allow it to come off easily.

The reason I changed my rating from 5 stars to 2 is because initially, I used this filter at the wide end of my 24-105 where it caused little noticeable image degradation. However, at the long end, it becomes noticeable, and on my 70-200mm IS II it is unusable. The first time I tried this polarizer on my 70-200, I was taking photos of my dog in broad daylight, and EVERY SINGLE photo was totally out-of-focus and actually caused me to worry that my expensive lens needed servicing. When I got home, I took some controlled photos and found that the lens wasn't the issue -- taking off the CPL restored the 70-200's super-sharp IQ.

I've posted two images to the "customer photos" section of this product: the one with the 24-105 shows that image quality is maybe acceptable, but the one taken with the 70-200 is atrocious.

...but beware. I got mine used, while I was looking for a budget coated polarizer to be used for a few landscape shots with a new lens. I have been using it with a canon EF-S 10-22mm mounted on a T2i for a couple of weekends, and here are my findings (I should call them impressions, since I did not run any specific test/comparison with identical conditions, etc):

- Degradation in sharpness seems minimal;
- Fits nicely and seems quite solid; It adds a protection to the front element of the lens;
- Increase in flare and other undesired effects appears to be limited (I took a number of pics with the sun in the frame, and they could be controlled -- kudos to Canon for the great ultrawide EF-S lens!!!);
- The rotating part is a bit too hard to move to my taste -- you need to tighten the filter to the lens to be sure that rotating the polarizing element will not make the whole thing unscrew;
- "Effect" appears somewhat limited - I have been using a Hoya circular polarizer for another lens, and it appeared to be able to add more "punch" to the sky and have more contrast;
- At certain angles, it adds a yellowish hue to the image... strange, did not happen with Hoya. I have to admit that I have mixed feelings about this effect: I found myself looking for that specific setting for a combined warming/polarizing filter effect.

Overall: Does what it is supposed, yet with some quirks. I think I will keep it for now, and maybe get another, more "neutral" filter for critical sky pictures, or images where you want to emphasize the cold colors.

It does what it is supposed to. It makes the faded out sky look much more blue and makes the colors in the photo more vivid.
