    Is there a universal CP or do you nede to get one specifically for every lens you have? i don't know if a CP can fit all lenses or not.

    your lens should say on the front what size filter it needs, the 70-200F4 is 67mm

    What's the difference in all these polarizers? Like Tiffen, Hoya, and B+W? (completely noob question)

    Is this something I will notice?
