hardly worth buying – CPL Polarizer Lens Filter (58mm) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
it is a CPL and it works generally, but when stacking two Massa CPLs I was unable to get complete blocking of light, so I guess it's polarizing isn't perfect.
Cons:
it softens your images, the glass isn't of very high quality.
The softening was less problematic on shorter focal lengths but when I mounted it on 300mm lens the images suffered from some bluring.
Other:
Bottomline:
I now use it only on my 28-90mm lens(Equivalent) and I regard this buy as having the chance to experimenting with low quality CPL for a cheep price.
if I will start to use the CPL more, I will have to get a better one.
