circular polarizing filter

I need a decent 52mm poliarizing filter for a trip to Florida. The last time I went to FL I did not have this filter and my pictures were a little washed out. At that time I was using slide film, as an experiment, so that may have been a contributation. This trip is my wedding/honeymoon and I will scream if I can't get good pictures.With all the sand and glare off the water I know I will need a good one.. anyone have any suggestions on brand? I think there are different "degrees" if you will, of polarizing too.. any info is welcome.

simple rule : the cheaper the worse off you'll be.


CirPols are something that you should not be afraid to drop down a chunk of change on, and get the most expensive brand name you can afford. i'd say a B+W | 52 mm Circular Polarizer Multi-Coated (MC) Slim | 66026458 or B+W | 52 mm Kaeseman Circular Polarizer Glass Filter | 65045613 would be your best bet. the Kaeseman filters are sealed, so that the foil used to polarize the light cannot degrade as much as a regular one, and some Kaeseman filters remove more glare. at the least, you want a multicoated filter, SMC or MRC are even better

I have been happy with both B&H and Hoya. I would suggest you not get a "warm" polarizer and I don't think the "slim" polarizers are available in 52mm. I've never paid to get a Kasseaman filter.

patrick, the first link i posted was a slim, and there's a slim Kaesemann too, that's actually like, 35 cents cheaper.
