Solid Build but not much Polarization
on April 29, 2013
I have used this lens filter for 3 weeks and feel the lens is solidly built and should last for many years. However, the polarization does not change dramatically on my Nikkor 85mm f1.4G lens. The richness of blue skies on my much cheaper Tiffen 77mm Circular Polarizer are much bluer and dramatic. This CP is not a good value considering the price paid vs. the results received during my use.
I downgraded this lens filter to 2 stars as it recently cracked from being bumped when attached to my Nikon 70-200MM f2.8 VRII lens being carried in my Lowepro camera bag. The only plus is that the lens was not damaged. I will not be replacing this expensive filter as it cannot withstand minor bumps. The filter glass was supposed to be specially treated against cracking from minor impacts. Inquiries to Schneider Electronics on a filter fix or replacement have gone unanswered after 4 weeks.
