    don't use Tiffen, they suck ass. I'd suggest a Hoya, B+W or Heliopan.

    Yes.

    Personally, I use Heliopan SH-PMC filters, but the Hoyas are pretty good and about half the price.

    I have been using Tiffen on my kit lens and havent had any flaring problems. I got another for my 18-200 and still am not having any trouble with it.:hsd:

    Maybe you should read this, then go test again: http://www.kenandchristine.com/gallery/1054387/1

    I'd bet you are getting a LOT more flare and contrast reduction than you thought you were.

    I have a set of Tiffen filters. I can vouch for that. They do suck in certain situation.
    Ghosting is the most common of problems.

    I use B+W Kasemann CPL, can't remember how much it was. It's pretty well abused and I've never been dissapointed.
