    I am in much need of some expert advice. I am getting ready for a big trip to Europe. I plan to do a lot of landscape and outdoor shooting with my D70. I want to purchase a 67mm circular polarizer filter to use on both my 70-300 and 18-70 lenses. I will buy the 67mm and a step up adapter for my 62mm lens. I have read that you should invest in a decent polarizer filter and stay away from cheaper ones. I did a lot of research and still don't know which is the best for the money. A lot of people have recommended staying away from Hoya because of difficulty with the cheap ring.

    Here is what I have found.

    At B&H

    B+W 67mm Circular Polarizer (MRC) Multi-Resistant Coating Glass Filter
    $114.95

    Nikon 67mm Circular Polarizer Glass Filter II (Slim) $109.95



    At Adorama

    Hoya 67mm DMC PRO1 Digital Circular Polarizer Glass Filter $139.50

    B + W 67mm Circular Polarizer Multi Coated Glass Filter $114.95



    At eBay

    HOYA 67mm THIN CIRCULAR POLARIZER S- HMC PRO 1 $114.90
