Re: Recommend me a polarizer

C-PL is one thing where you often don't get what you pay for, in other words higher price, or brand reputation is no guaranty of better result. Did a lot of research when I bought my last C-PL filters, and the Marumi DHJ Super came out as a very good value and I like it. From the reviews I've seen I would get the top-of-the-line B+W but it is quite expensive, I would not bother with their cheaper options. This said I can't do high res tests to see if the Marumi affects sharpness or not as it does for you, but you might find that a vast majority of filters do, but not to the point of loosing details (which you didn't with your current C-PL), which can be easily recovered with a good sharpening tool such as Topaz Sharpen AI.
