which filter?
Hi, I'm trying to decide which lens filter I should go for? I'm not sure which brand to get so I'm looking for some advice. my two options for my e-510 are....

HOYA 58.0mm PL-CIR filter - $73.

B&W 58ES CIRCULAR POLARIZER - $109.

Which one should I choose between the two?..

Look, it seems you have had your camera for only just over a week .....

Why don't you hang on and get a few more pictures shot, before deciding you need any filters at all?? That would be my advice..

[There are certainly things I would buy WAY ahead of a filter... a tripod, for instance!].

Or have you already identified some problem with your shots. If so, what exactly is it makes you think a pola filter is the fix?Regards,Baz..

These 2 are both good filter, Hoya is lighter, the B&W is heavier.No hesitation when capturing moments..

The reason the BW is heavier is because the ring is brass vs. the alum. of the Hoya..

A couple of things.........

Check out hvstar.net for pricing (good dealer from hong kong)..

Make sure to get the multi-coated version of whatever you buy.

Think to the future. you dont want to be buying one for each lens usually so think about the largest filter your going to reasonably need and get that size and get step-up rings..

If you are going to use ultra-wide lenses, you'll want a slim polarizer...

I've heard many great reviews for the B&W..

As Baz hinted, do you really need this right now, though?.

I'm not saying that you don't, but it doesn't hurt to ask yourself..

If you think you could become a filter freak, you'd best check out Cokin. I prefer their slide in system..

I will definitely get Hoya. The 58mm Pro1 is more than $100. Here are few samples:http://www.photo96.com/tr/dp/cpl_01.htmYongboPhoto Gallery: http://www.photo96.com/Blog: http://www.photo96.com/blog/index.php.
