So I'm looking for a good solution. First let me tell you my idea. I'm looking for a nice polarizing solution for my Rm3D and perhaps for my Canon/Phase System.
It certainly does not make sense to buy one filter for each lens size. I think I would need to buy 8-11 Filters, which is a little expensive. My first though was to get the Arca Filter holder and use a square filter. This would let me use the Filter on all Arca lenses. However, my second idea was to get a round 86mm Filter which is the size of the biggest lens and then use a step down ring for most other lenses. Would that work or am I overlooking something ?
Second question is is there a difference in "effectiveness" between a Circular Polarizer and a Linear Polarizer? I know that perhaps the AF and metering on my Canon adn Phase wouldn't work, but the main target is still the Arca, so I don't care much about it.
Last there is the question about companies. I mean there are a lot out there, and if you read the great marketing you could think one is better than the next and back.
I have the feeling Schneider and Heliopan are more expensive than for example Tiffen or B+W, I haven't found aprice for the Rodenstocks so far.
Is there a "best" Filter out there or what a the best options ?
Thanks for the help.
