"I also have the B+W 77mm slim MRC CPL, but after the episode with the UV, I decided to give other brands a try so I ordered Heliopan slim 82mm Multi-Coated. The build quality seems a bit better on B+W but the Heliopan is slimmer and i find the markings on the side very helpful. I can't notice any difference in IQ."

Did you use the High Transmission SH-PMC Heliopan or the regular SH-PMC slim heliopan pol?

I checked the HT range before buying and the only difference they mention is that there's half a stop light loss. Probably as opposed to 1-1.5 for the regular filters. Are you aware of other differences?

I use the CPLs mostly in bright light so the added ND effect comes as a bonus.

The High Transmission are less dense so the light loss is 1 stop rather then 1 2/3 stop. So there is 2/3rds of a stop less light losss. And the High Transmission is only in their SH-PMC coating where the non HT is available without SH-PMC or with it.
