Hi guys, just wondering how many of you use a circular polariser on your copy of the 24-70 f/2.8L II?I splurged on the 82mm B+W MRC Nano XS-Pro and it is a beautiful filter but I can't tell much of a difference between it and my Hoya 77mm Circular Polarizing HD filter. The construction is a bit better, but Hoya sent me a brand new one when I foolishly separated mine while under warranty. I use a polarizer a lot in Florida for water and foliage and if you follow B+W & other's recommendations not to shoot under 28mm, it works great, although, I've shot plenty at 24mm. It works fine if I'm careful about the "effect".
I haven't got a CP yet but considering maybe that I should have one for use with this lens.
If you do use one how often is it on the lens? Is it only for the odd occassion or more?
Also any recommendations on filter purchase? All my screw on filters are B+W and am looking at maybe the B+W MRC Nano XS-Pro. Expensive but maybe worth it. Especially as it's slim mount with front threads.
As for frequent vs. occasional use, that's up to you. If you need one or use one already, it may be worth it, but if you mostly shoot people and don't get around the water, wet landscapes, foliage in the sun, big windows, etc. your better off spending your money elsewhere.
Also, using my polarizer leads me to my one gripe about the Mark II - plastic filter threads. For $2k+, that seems ridiculous!
