Hoya HD or B+W Kaeseman polarizer for 17-55mm IS?
Jul 20, 2011

These are the the two polarizers I'm considering for the 17-55mm IS and would like to hear any experiences or pros/cons of each. I've seen some reports of the Hoya HD's falling apart, but wonder how widespread the problem is. Also I've seen the B+W Kaeseman's run about $180, but the Hoya HD's can be had for around $110 on ebay from reputable sellers out of Hong Kong. I also own a Canon 10-22mm which is also a 77mm, if that factors into getting a slim version but I plan to use it mostly with the 17-55.
