    What you think this circular polarizer is good for Nikon D40X KIT lens (18-55mm) ?

    Yep. Hoya are good quality. And that black one is their highest quality, i think.

    Does it go green, blue, black?

    I don't know.. The price is 100 USD. This filter is good only for automatic focus?

    An excellent example of the effect of polarized light on clear plastic. Linear-polarized light is coming out of the polarizer (even though it is a circular polarizer - this is perfectly normal and doesn't indicate a fault), having been reflected by the white back, then passes through the clear cover where the colours are created.

    You don't lose much, if anything, by using a circular polarizer instead of a linear. A linear may fool autofocus systems (not all of them) and exposure meters.

    Maybe there should be a sticky, or an article on polarizing filers and their properties.

    Best,
    Helen
