I am ordering the 15-35mm RF 2.8 lens that shows 82mm front lens diameter. Used for landscape, I am going to co-order an UV and polarization filter. Polarization filter with high transmission.
I want high optical quality for this premium zoom lens. A search on the world wide web shoewed a lot of new filter manufacturer.
Should I stay with B&W? Or one of the newer companies?
Your thoughts are wellcome...

For polarization: Breakthrough without hesitation, color-neutral ! (visit website first to choose the right one...)
For UV: B&W ,Rodenstock or Heliopan, or Breakthrough
Yet, digital cameras do not need UV filtration, but rather "protection" filters

I used to use B&W, but I've pretty much switched over to Breakthrough. Breakthrough's NDs are a lot more neutral than the B&W ones I had, and I like using the combo filter: a 6 stop ND with a polarizer. You used to only be able to get it from their website, but now its available at retailers.

Ok, I give them a chance. (y)
I am surprised by the remove-friendly ripped desing of the ring.
But I like the warm colour of the B&W too ;)
