Which CPL filter can you recommend me ?
« on: April 24, 2012, 11:10:22 PM »
I have the 77mm Hoya Pro1 CPL I use on my 24 - 70 and looking to buy a 72mm to use with my other lenses. Does anyone have a suggestion on which filter to use ? I don't mind spending on quality.

Thanks.

If you're getting good results with the 77mm Hoya, why not get another Hoya?
All my filters are Hoya. hehehe

You might consider a step-up ring to use your 77mm filter on 72mm threads as a cheap solution.  The only problem is it precludes the use of a hood on most lenses (the 85L II is an exception).

I just picked up a 72mm Hoya Pro-1 on amazon for cheap and it's a perfectly good buy. as Neuro said, if you don't plan on using a hood you could just buy a step up ring (which I almost did but I do use the hood)
Canon XTi, AE-1 Program, Rebel II, Tamron 17-50 VC, Zenitar-M 50/1.7 and a bunch of other cheap lenses (50/1.8FD, 18-55 EF-S Kit, 35-70 Kit, 80-200 4.5-5.6). S100 classic.

I used the version designed for the Cokin P filter set and miss not being able to use it on my Lee filter set. If the exchange rate was better and it was easier to import I'd get a replacement.
