I want to buy a circular polarizer for my new olympus e510 but have no clue what to buy. really new to photography and not really sure what to get...where to get it...any help would be great!!! I bought the kit that came with two lenses if that helps.

here are 2 places i have bought filters from. both are reliable.

go for a good quality hoya or if you have the cash B+W. check the filter size for your lens' to make sure you get the right size. don;t bother with a slim CPL they are a pain in the ass and a waste of money.

I have a B+W Slim C-POL, and yes they are a pain in the ass to get off of your lens sometimes. The knurled area you have to grip on is very small (probably about 1/16" wide).

I got a set of those filter wrenches...they don't help at all.
