I am looking into picking up a B + W 105mm Circular Polarizer to go on the end of my Lee filter holder. Does anyone familar with the product have any idea what the difference between the two that B and H Photo Video sells? Other then the price of course. They are both 105mm Kaesemann. I am not sure what "extra wide" entails considering they are both 105mm. Any help would be much appreciated! thanks!!

I have the regular B+W 105mm Kaesemann. It's pretty stiff, which can be annoying with the Lee filter holder. It was enough of a problem that I bought a Heliopan. I like the Heliopan much better, and I'll eventually get around to selling the B+W.
A bit of extra thickness can be useful when using one of the hooded Lee filter holders because it gives your fingers more to grab onto. It's probably not a big deal with just the holder.
