Massa CPL 52mm Superb and cheap! – CPL Polarizer Lens Filter (52mm) Reviews

Pros:
This filter will not stick to your lens, it is put on and removed very easily on both my Canon 50mm II (52 mm filter), and on my 24-85 (67mm filter). The front part also rotates easily.
For the rest it works fine, I can't see any noticable sharpness loss.
Cons:
You lose light, about half of your light (1 Stop / F). Also I noticed some different color temperatures when rotating the filter (from blue to yellow). This is normal if you know what a polarizer actually does, and your camera will easily compensate for it.
Other:
Everybody should buy this. You can do really cool things with polarizers (windows / water (fish!) / reflections). It's just that simple...
Bottomline:
Buy this!
