Don't some airlines have issues with passengers transporting magnets?
News to me, but then I only fly within the US so my experience is limited. Just checked the TSA website and they state magnets are permitted in both checked and carry on bags. That is still only for US airlines though.

Doubt these would be strong enough to matter. Now the tape demagnetizer I had might be a different story but that had to be plugged into mains power.

I prefer filters of the several brands that are Made in Germany.
In my experience they are made with better quality glass,
and their sturdy brass rings are more trouble-free.

Chris, take a look at the Breakthrough filters. Same Schott glass as the German brands and their rings are far superior to anything else I have ever seen.

Chris, take a look at the Breakthrough filters.

I would never, ever pay $149 for any filter, period.

Breakthrough Photography has just come out with a new system that attaches the filters magnetically. They already make very high end filters comparable to any of the best from the other brands but this new method of attachment is different enough I thought it worth mentioning.

Manfrotto offers magnetic filter holders compatible with all threaded filters independend from the manufacturer.

Interesting. I doubt they will be compatible to each other, but regardless I think this is great idea. I have the mag mount from Breakthrough on order. So I'll see if it works as good as it sounds.

Would a Polarizer work on a Tamron 10-24? I use this almost exclusively for landscape. If a Polarizer would work, recommendations? (Under $100).

Thanks to the OP; this is a very interesting thread!

It will work. However on anything that wide you will get inconsistent results with any shot that has the sky in it. The shot will have lighter and darker areas of sky in it and look really awful. I have several hundred images from inside crater lake as an example. Strongly not recommended.

Might be OK if you want to remove reflections from water, but avoid any sky in the image.

Yes, but you need to be careful that you don't mess the sky up. The trick is paying attention to light angles and what you're shooting at and often dialing back on how much polarization you use. Here are a couple articles I think you might find helpful:

Not being one for snap decisions, I decided my initial thoughts regarding the Zeiss filter was close enough to correct, and I have one on the way.
I hope it doesn’t arrive to much before the lens....
How dou you think about the Zeiss Filter for using it with the D FA* 50mm 1.4 ?

So far so good. It doesn’t appear to have any bad effects on imaging quality, and the polarizing effect is quite strong.
