Can anyone recommend which polarizing filter is best for the A1 -
circular or standard and why? Thanks

My A1 is almost within my grasp and I am looking for a polarising
filter. I phoned a camera store today where the salesman sounded
knowedgeable and stated that circular polarisation would be
necessary for the A1 so as not to interfere with the AF system. Has
your research uncovered anything to confirm or dispute that claim?
Cheers from down under (also), John

Well, apparently your salesman is not knowledgeable at all, because he is wrong....
