    As with almost all consumer goods, most brands make both good and lesser quality filters, so the name alone isn't the determining factor for me. I usually just buy a multi-coated filter that's not too expensive, as thin as possible, and have not had trouble with any brand so far.

    Always used / liked Hoya multi-coated filters...and have that very 72mm rotating frame polarizer you're referring to...spends most of its time on my Canon FDn 28-85

    FWIW, a couple of examples:

    Have the same Hoya rotating frame polarizer in 52mm that fits the shorter focal lengths like 24/28/35/50/85/70-150.

    And to solve the Canon hood dilemma I think you mentioned a while back, I replaced all my Canon bayonette type hoods with black aluminum screw on hoods that make turning a rotating frame polarizer simple...have one on that 28-85 I took those shots with.

    I've also had some good experience with Marumi 72mm Super DHG MC CPL PL.D Slim Thin Filter.

    Some foliage shots using that CPL with my Nikon D600

    I have been thinking about that Marumi as here is some big test that ranks it #1 with the B+W
