Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • High Efficiency Kaesemann Foils
  • MRC Multi-Resistant Coating
  • Rugged Brass Filter Ring
  • High Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 67mm Kaesemann Circular Polarizer MRC Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

Kaesemann-type filters feature greater optical efficiency than regular polarizing foils and are more neutral in color. The polarizing foils are cemented between plano-parallel optical glass layers, which are then precision-polished to achieve the most accurate plano-parallel surface. This edge sealing protects the filter layers from humidity and are ideal for use with high-speed telephoto and apochromatic lenses.

The Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) is both an anti-reflection coating as well as a protective surface. It helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, it offers greater protection to the filter substrate and stays cleaner for longer than uncoated filters.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

      This is a very well made filter. Polarizing filters have 2 elements of which the front element rotates. The rotation is very, very smooth. Screwing it onto my lens I was impressed with how well made the threads were. The build quality is awesome.

      As far as picture results, this was my first polarizing filter (yes I researched a lot and got one that was pretty high end). I did not notice a lot of difference in skies, however I live near Torrey Pines reserve and for the first time I could get the blues and greens of the ocean (and actually see into the water) instead of the washed out mess I usually get. For that result alone it was well worth it to me. I notice a little more color saturation in my shots.

      Honestly I thought this filter would be the best buy simply because of the high quality it said to offer. I purchased it to use with my 100mm L macro lens, but it gets stuck quite frequently on the lens and I have to use a rubber band to get it off. I think the ring that has the filter threads is too thin because there's hardly anything to grab onto to try and spin it off the lens.

      I wouldn't buy a Kaeseman again. Not worth the high cost.

        Excellent quality at an affordable price. Polarizer are more useful than most people realize - the downside is the expense. I find this Kaesemann to be every bit as effective as polarizers at almost double the price.

                operates smoothly, very noticeable effect.
                this is one of those purchases you get under the excuse of "get the best so i don't have to upgrade later" and its completely justified.

                it has a heft to it, it doesn't bind or cross-thread. i'm using it on a 70-200mm f/4L IS and it never comes off.

                    Comments about B+W 67mm Kaesemann Circular Polarizer MRC Filter:

                    The saying goes "the best things in life are free." Well sometimes the best things can be expensive, such as the three L lenses I have acquired over the past few years (and a couple of not cheap 3rd party ones as well.) I learned early on not to skimp with the glass on front, whether a clear UV haze, ND, or a CP. Your expensive lens is only as good as the filter letting in the image. There are other top grade filters on the market but for my money, B&W is as good as they get. I use their haze/UV for protection and CP's and ND's as needed for desired effects. I had a less expensive brand name CP early on and had trouble telling when it was really working as I turned the filter ring. Not so with the B&W; you can see immediate change as you adjust. The color rendering and deep blue skies or clear water are fantastic. I concur with some that you need to be careful not to over tighten when screwing the filter on. It really can get stuck especially if it should heat up in the sun. Just go easy and you should be alright. Take care of your expensive lenses and they'll take care of you.

                              This B+W Kaesemann Circular Polarizer is one of the finest I have used. It's absolutely essential for cutting glare and getting blue skies in landscape shots. It's a high quality filter and the ring is brass which makes it easier to attach to your lens.

                                      Great for landscapes. It helps to reduce glare off of water and clouds. Yields vivid colors, especially a blue sky.

                                        Comments about B+W 67mm Kaesemann Circular Polarizer MRC Filter:

                                        This is a very well made filter. Polarizing filters have 2 elements of which the front element rotates. The rotation is very, very smooth. Screwing it onto my lens I was impressed with how well made the threads were. The build quality is awesome.

                                        As far as picture results, this was my first polarizing filter (yes I researched a lot and got one that was pretty high end). I did not notice a lot of difference in skies, however I live near Torrey Pines reserve and for the first time I could get the blues and greens of the ocean (and actually see into the water) instead of the washed out mess I usually get. For that result alone it was well worth it to me. I notice a little more color saturation in my shots.

                                            For those who want to shoot outdoors, a CPL really enhances the colors, especially the sky and clouds. This CPL modifies the colors well as expected and makes the images appear very clear.

                                              Bought this filter specifically for my new 85mm f1.8 lens and together phenomenal results. This has also reaffirmed my belief in spending more to get the recognized B+ W quality and coatings.
