4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent filter, but is it worth it?, January 6, 2011
This review is from: B+W 77mm Kaesemann Circular Polarizer with Multi-Resistant Coating (Electronics)
I will say this is the best CP filter I've ever used. My previous is the other B+W CP. The only real difference I've noticed is in the sky colors, where this one captures it more accurately (the other had a tendency to purple the sky during certain rare conditions).

I think the gushing reviews might be in part people justifying what they paid (which seems to happen in the photo community a bit too often). I got it as a gift, so no remorse here :) I probably would not have bought this with my own money, but I'm quite happy to have it. Is it worth the extra $50-100 over the top hoya/other B+W? Well, if you need the absolute best then this is probably it. If you want something great but not excessive, the others will probably work fine for you. I could be missing something as I've only used this filter for a couple weeks now, but that's my take.

Truer words have never been spoken.

Having used many garbage filters, including Hoya's flagship polarizer that leaked grease from the rings, yes this polarizer is well worth the money. If you want the best you pay for the best.
