About B + W 77 Circular Polarizer

Kaesemann filters are constructed from select polarizing foils and the finest optical class.
• They were designed for apochromatic and fast telephoto lenses, but all lenses benifit from their quality.
• Kaesemann polarizers are edge sealed and are ideal for extreme climate conditions.

• Polarizer filters evenly increase color saturation of all colors (except black and white), creating deep, rich scenics.
• They add contrast for dramatic skies and ariel shots.
• Polarizers also eliminate glare from highly reflected surfaces like glass and water.
• Polarizers are two part lenses that rotate, allowing you to select the degree of additional saturation, contrast and glare reduction desired.
•They come in two varieties.
• Circular-for all types of cameras (required for beam splitting metering systems commonly found in auto-focus SLR's and in most current TTL Slr's; check your camera's manual).
• Linear-for rangefinders and older SLR metering systems.

Most Liked Positive Review

 

All serious photographers should own one

It's simply the finest polarizer I've ever used. It has some weight to it and pretty much feels to be built like a tank. I have no doubt that this thing will last for years. Why spend thousands, or even hundreds, on a lens only to stick some sub-standard piece of glass on the front. Go with the best, you'll not be disappointed.

Low quality male threads

The male threads are poorly cut. This is the only screw on lens accessory that I have had trouble with. There is way too much friction in the part that is supposed to spin, so you either loosen the entire filter or the crummy male threads will jam into your lens/UV filter. Very annoying when you are in the field and can't remove it. Female threads are fine. Image quality is nice though.

good quality product

Good quality filter but price you have to pay over performance is too high, honestly I couldn't find much difference with my $7 cheap filter from other brand.

decent filter but too expensive for it'sperformance

By

from laurel, MD  -  Photo Enthusiast

Build quality is great does what it does but for about $145 I thought it will be way better than my old $6 cpl but honestly I couldn't see any difference even under careful pixel peeping (reducing reflection, making cloud pop). There could be something better that I don't know but for performance it was exactly same as my $6 cpl, I'm so disappointed on b+w. I'm sending this back.

Excellent Value

By

from Udon Thani, Thailand  -  Photo Enthusiast

Value is completely different from cost. There are cheaper CP filters but for me, the extra value of brass construction justifies the additional cost of this filter

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ERIC F  I bought it to make the clouds pop! CP filters are so rad, for so many things. Is this one better than a 100 dollar one? I can't say, I've only used this one and it's awesome.
William G  Does it has front threads? Thank you.
KURNIA K  Yes it does,
Shopper  Does anyone know if there is a chart of milimeter thickness of all B+W polarizers? I currently have an older one but wanted to know what the thickness is for a 77mm MRC one versis a Kaesemann MRC standard versus a Thin mount version? If I get the standard and use it on a 24-105 L Canon Lens with a 5D Mark II with I see the edges at 24mm? Basically do I have to get the thin mount version? everyone states that you can place a normal lens cap on the thin mount filters since there are no threads on it?
STEVEN J  Steve J : There is a chart on the Schneider Optics (B+W) website that shows exactly what you want. I don't remember exactly where on the site -- maybe in FAQs.
