I've put this filter on many Canon lenses and it's worked just fine with no perceivable loss in image quality EXCEPT on one lens.

For about a week, I used this off and on a 24-105/4L IS. Near the end of the week I noticed a faint scratch/abrasion in the dead center of the filter as well as on the front element of the lens. Thus, I stopped using it (on the trip). When I returned to civilization and the land of the internet, I did some searching and found quite a few other folks (on dpreviewDOTcom) complaining about the same issue with the Tiffen filter and their 24-105/4L lens.

All in all, I'd recommend this filter, but try it on all the lenses you intend to use to make sure there's some clearance between the filter and the front element.

While not the strongest Nd filter out there, it offers (for my needs) the perfect amount of power. I'm very big on landscape and waterscape photography and this allows me to take the photos I want in just about all of the conditions imaginable. Some have stated that they can't get wispy waterfalls during the day and please allow me to correct them, yes you can and I will upload photo examples if someone would like to see them. I've shot with this filter in all conditions, ranging from full sun to cloudy skys and it's terrific! Again, you do not have to wait for sunset!

The Filter is high quality, easy to screw on and off and it drastically cuts down the light passing through your lens allowing you to take some beautiful shots.

I was looking for a filter to assist me in photographing waterfalls and creeks, but didn't want to spend a ton of money. This filter, especially for the price, is great. All of my subjects were shaded to some degree, but this filter was still enough to get the blurred effect from moving water, but wasn't so dark that I couldn't use my Rebel XS's auto-focus when I wanted. I would recommend this, especially if you are just looking for something to experiment with.

If you think this is the strongest ND filter you can get, then it is wrong. DO NOT BUY THIS. This is only 3-stop and there are 9 or 10 stop filters available. Learn about ND filters before settling on one.

With this ND filter, you cannot take pictures of water falls in bright day light (even with smallest aperture (F22)). But if you want to take the same later in the day (around sunset), this will help you a lot. I took lots of pictures using this filter during my trip to Yosemite. I could take really nice waterfall motion (with 1 sec exposure during sunset) but all the pictures I took during day time were washed out...they all became too bright.

If you have a polarizing filter, you may stack on top of it (be careful with vignetting) to get more darkness.

The filter itself is very well built and I was able to easily screw/unscrew from the lens. I would put some more money to get more f-stop. I will post some sample pics I took soon.

It works great to make long exposure photography i.e. water silk effect, panning, etc. during the day (even in a very sunny tropical day)

works well too in landscape photography (when high DOF is needed)

I needed a darker neutral density filter than I already had. I got this one and used it on a recent vacation to shoot some sunrises and sunsets. I was extremely pleased with the results. Also, I thought the price on Amazon was excellent. There are other brands out there that cost more, but I have always liked Tiffen products, and knew that I would have no issues with it.

This filter works great for slowing down waterfalls, and swift moving streams. Still keeps all the great colors too.

This was what I ordered, but I guess that it wasn't really what I was looking for. It really doesn't make all that much of a difference. It will let you increase the exposure by a little bit, but it won't be a huge difference. I was hoping to make rough surf look like fog with, like, a 30 second exposure, but, even on an overcast day, iso 100, f/22, and this filter, I could only go a second or two.

Consider buying a more powerful filter, especially if you want to take long exposures on sunny days.

Oh, and it's really hard to look through the viewfinder with one of these on. You're almost blind when you're using one of these, so there will be a lot of guess-and check.

I would really recommend some strong, stackable square filters instead. They're a lot more useful. Look into it. That's what I'm going to buy next.
