As far as brands, did a test of about two dozen filters, so check them out. I have found that the Marumi brand (found at is an easy to clean, not too expensive, multicoated brand with good IQ. I have a polarizers, clear filters and ND filters from them. I also have top of the line B+W filters and I cannot tell the difference in IQ between them. However I can tell that some old Tiffen and Hoya filters cause IQ degradation (to be fair, those are older filters that I got second hand - not new).
