    sorry, i was probably too harsh whn i said i didnt like them. thats not true, i should have said that i prefer the B&W's. they are a little heavier, have a much better build quality and found that the threads screw in/ out with minimal to zero effort. just a better product that i'm happy to pay a premium for.

    I will be needing to pick up a larger diameter CPL may get one and step down rings for my other lenses, I will consider a b+w one it will be a pretty high cost but with rings I can use it with multiple lenses, we will see, thanks much.

    Ahhh... I should've guessed... That is why one shouldn't read forums at 1 o'clock in the night...

    My quote comes from 1993 PC RPG game Betrayal at Krondor (based on excellent books by Raymond E. Feist).

    Well I broke down and got a 77mm Rodenstock UV filter. The guy offered it to me for 20% off since i was buying a lot of stuff today. Got the 50D I wanted plus the 24-70mm f/2.8L USM lens. It's still in the box so I'll take some box opening pictures tonight then do some shots with and without the filter to see what I like better.

    Anyone have experience or knowledge of Rodenstock filters? The guy at the camera shop told me it's comparable to B+W, they get the same glass is what I was told. I haven't used the UV filter yet and I'm debating on returning it and getting a CPL from Rodenstock instead. They didn't carry the 77mm B+W CPL. Thoughts?

    77mm Hoya or Heliopan. End of thought.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Thanks Don, ended up getting the Rodenstock @ 20% off. It was the highest end 77mm MC CPL they carried. And thought it's been really hard getting information on Rodenstock, I've only heard good things about them.

    You can buy filters on the internet at B&H.

    More difficult and costly to get filters outside of the US from B&H and other US based online retailers. Plus, nothing beats a local discount that you can just drive over to the store and pick up if you need it right away.
