    So I'm thinking about getting some filters for my current and coming lenses. I don't want the cheap stuff that fogs up images, but then again I can't justify spending $100 per filter. What are some to look at?

    For the cost/performance ratio, I found my Cokin Polarizers to be great.

    for the most part a good polarizer is all you need. ND's are pretty specialized, and beyond that, everything is either gimmicky or extremely specialized


    buy a polarizer that is for the largest diameter lens you own/plan to own. probably 77mm but some newer lenses are 82mm.

    From there, you can get step down rings to use the filter on a small diameter lens

    non baller polarizers are useless

    Wirelessly posted via wap.offtopic.com (Opera/9.80 (J2ME/MIDP; Opera Mini/4.2.13918/2444; U; en) Presto/2.2.0)

    Search ebay for kenko pro 1 digital. They are the same as the higher end hoyas but much cheaper.
