    Solid polarizing filter

    Posted

    Was going to order a Hoya, but decided to check the store first. Already have the 67mm but needed the 72mm for two lenses, Sony/Zeiss 16-35 and Sony/Zeiss 70-200. Had no concerns about the 70-200 which is the primary lens will use with. Manatee coming into the spring from the cold and need to cut the water reflection. It was the 16-36 (full frame a7rII, not crop sensor) that gave me concerns as deep rim filters on an ultra-wide lens will have vignette due to the angle of coverage. I am happy to report that, like the Hoya Pro I intended to get, it has a narrow rim and no vignette. Also, while brought clouds out in test shots with and compared to without the filter, I didn't notice any colorcast shift either. Since this was with a full frame camera, for reference on a crop sensor camera, the lens would be 11mm or lower.

    For the price it isn't bad but you lose light big

    While optically I don't have an issue with this polarizer there are better polarizers out there but of course they cost twice as much or more.. That said, I often use a polarizer in order to reduce glare or shine from wet leaves or grass or water. A polarizer is a important component but beware the less expensive polarizers do drop a lot more light (2 f-stops) than the higher quality ones meaning you don't get to use it as often as you need to because of light requirements (higher cost polarizers will drop 1/3 stop..) Again, not bad for the price but be aware that you get what you pay for. Optically its fine.

    Good Quality and Value

    This review applies to both the polarising and UV filter. They are both good quality filters, equal to the better quality lines of better-known brands. The frames feel solid and well-made, the glass is clean, and multi-coating (usually available on more expensive versions of some brands) reduce image degrading reflections. Since almost everyone uses a zoom lens that goes from wide-angle to short telephoto as a normal lens, an added bonus is the thin frame, which minimizes vignetting at the wide end.

    Works fine until you zoom!

    Blue skies are deep and beautiful. Just don't zoom when you're using this filter. Your photos will be very blurry, as if there was a lot of camera movement, even if you're on a tripod. Keep shopping.

    I got this filter on 8-7 for my Bday with a Nikkon Wide Angel lens and I freekin love it, I can take pictures with the sun in front of me and it blurs it just right so the item I am focusing on looks super clear.

    I used this filter for a short while. It didn't feel as good as quality as the B&W or Hoya filters I've used. The glass seems thinner on the Platinum. I eventually went back to the slightly more expensive brands for peace of mind. The color is intensified with this filter so, for the price, it's not that bad.

    72 MM Polarizer (circular)

    Works well in those few cases where a polarizer is needed: Reduced reflaction from a de-electric surface, Darkens blue sky at right angles to sun light, The polarizer is followed by a quarter wave plate (at some unknown wavelength) so the camera still works properly.

    It's subtle at first, you'll think nothing's happening...but Things Are Happening. It helps! Particularly if there's some annoying bright glare you want to get rid of...I would be wary of anything cheaper.
