    which one do i use? I need to get one before Wednesday! From what I know I would use a circular polarizer filter. Anyway any ideas of some good sites to buy filters would be helpful i need a good price so help me find the great deal. Also it is a 74mm lens so they are harder to find. Help me.

    any digital should use a circular.
    B+W MRC filters are awesome...just picked one up, and can't say enough about it. Can't wait till there's a sunny day here.

    Why is that? Is it something to do with the sensor? I've never noticed anything. Doesn't it only apply to cameras that have beamsplitters in the optical path?

    Academic nit-picking aside, even for cameras that don't have beamsplitters you may as well get a circular because there are no real disadvantages, and if you get another camera in the future it will be compatible.

    Best,
    Helen
