Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I settled on this polarizer after reading reviews from a lot of different sources. The first one I received from Amazon had a couple of issues. The front rotation ring was too tight and it also had a small mark on the front element. I tried cleaning it with lint free cloth with no luck. I called Amazon and they promptly replaced with a new one. The new one however had a completely different issue. The front ring was a little wobbly. Having paid close to $150 on this one, I was expecting a much better quality product. I have now sent the second one back to Amazon.
Baring these quality issues, I would have given this product a 5 star rating. Now, why does it deserve a 3 star rating?
3 stars is purely for the quality of glass element. Polarization effect on this one is spectacular. People have been talking about vignetting at wide angle and the need for a slim version. But this polarizer does not vignette at 13 mm or higher on my DX format camera. Even at 11mm there...
I recently looked into purchasing my first polarizer and my father recommended this one. I have a Sony a6000 with a 35mm/ f.8 lens. This filter had one day free prime shipping and it arrived the next morning! I tested it in my backyard around sunset and it definitely made the color a lot richer. I noticed with the filter on it requires to increase ISO drastically (perhaps that's because I shot it in a lower light setting.) I can't wait till shoot with it on a bright sunny day!
I have not had any issues with this filter like I've had with others (strange color casts, uneven light spread, etc.). I used this filter for the attached photo. I needed to stop down a bit to allow for a longer exposure. It worked like a charm and didn't ruin my photo (like the current ND filters I have).
