I purchased this CPL based on various positive internet/user group reviews. I am happy to report that it lives up to the hype.
Glare is reduced and colors are enriched while negative affects such as vignetting and flare is non-existent or minimal.
An often overlooked quality of these filters are their everyday usability. The Super DHG easily threads on and off the lens while the variable thread is at the perfect balance of taut enough to hold your selected polarizing level without being too tight to spin. Cleanability is also very high as I have not needed any chemicals to clean the filter glass - liquids either bead off on their own or a short blast of air is all that is needed maintain the perfect optics.
This filter definitely gets my 5-star approval.
The Marumi name may not be a household name for many people in the USA, but if you run some Internet searches you'll find some very favorable reviews mentioning overall quality and excellent value. This version of Marumi's circular polarizer filter is coated to reduce (but not eliminate) internal reflections and lens flare. The polarizing effect is strong, and mechanical build quality (threading, smoothness of the rotating collar) feels highly engineered. Among other possible uses, it fits perfectly the 18-55mm and 55-210 mm lenses that Sony makes for the NEX-5, NEX-5N and NEX-7 series. Results on my own NEX-5N so far are very good.
The Marumi Super DHG filters got the highest ratings at an independent photo site and are far less expensive than B+W and the other "German" brands. Seriously, too many people look at price and think that more costly means better - just isn't so most of the time. This is a case in point. Light transmission on these is as good as it gets and the coatings seem to repel fingerprints (try cleaning a Hoya filter - shudder). Well made, great light transmission, repels dirt, easy to clean, and far less expensive - what else could you possibly ask for in a filter?
