    Can some one please explain the difference between a multi-coated polarizer and a Kaesaem multi-coated filter? Not sure on the spelling there.
    I have read reviews on Amazon for both. People say the Kaesaem is way better, but nobody says why. The Kaesaem is more expensive. I don't mind paying more if the cost is justified.

    Thanks for your help.

    According to Schneider (the corp owner of B+W) they are better becasue of better foil materials and glass. The edges between the glass are sealed. They are supposed to be more nuetral in color (very little color shift). And supposed to have a higher efficiency over the standard C-POLS.

    Because they are sealed there is less chance of mold / fogging between the layers in high humidity conditions.
