Lee 105mm Circular Polarizer Filter - Anyone involved in photography knows that Lee is a top-quality name in filtration. Whether for lighting or cameras, resin or gel, Lee makes filters for all scenarios. Their reputation is impeccable and they also are characterized by high standards for customer service.  

Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun. Filter factor is between 2.3 and 2.8 (approx. +1.3 stops).

If you're out walking on a lovely day - in the mountains or at the beach - and you want to get a fabulous shot of a cloud-filled sky or make the water seem more saturated, then a polarizer is the way to go. This filter is the best way to make the clouds stand out, increase or decrease the saturation of the ocean or increase or decrease the reflection off the water. You can also use this filter when shooting into glass or windows since it will, again, either increase or decrease reflections.

If you're shooting black and white and want to simulate a threatening storm, try throwing on a #25 Red filter. The vista will take on the appearance of an imminent, ominous storm. 

Along with a UV or Skylight Filter, a polarizing filter should be a part of everyone's gear bag. It can turn a run-of-the-mill image into a stunning, creative photo by increasing color saturation. Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems).

If you are using the Lee Foundation Kit Filter Holder you need the optional 105mm Accessory Front Thread Adapter Ring (LEFARPFK105).

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance

      I use a Lee holder system to don't have to purchase a lot of filters. I Like to handle any single light situation I can encounter for landscape pictures.

      I drop my camera recently at the feet of a waterfall during a LE. The polirizer was destroy, but it protect my Ef 24-70 USM ii lens.

      Having choice to purchase an other brand, I try some 105 mm from others brand peoples loan me for test and after trying 3 I choose to purchase a Lee again. For me one of the best polirazer on the market for the price.

      As a CPL it works just fine. But I bought the 105mm filter to go on my 10-24mm lens. Regrettably, the filter causes vignetting below 12mm. I sent it back as I specifically bought the 10-24 for my landscape shooting and want to use all of the focal range.

          I have always wanted a polarizing filter and finally decided it was time to go for the best that man can make. Having this size (105mmgives me so much more capability for the variety of lenses that I have. It is easy to install and use which helps when I am in the field anticipating a rainstorm headed my way. I highly recommend this filter system for any serious photographer. Thanks Lee Filters.

            Comments about LEE Filters 105mm Circular Polarizer Filter:

            Recieved this expensive glass wrapped in tissue paper !!??To use on Nikon lenses I had to screw on an adaptor ring to the Lee filter holder. After using the tiny brass screws on the holder and then attaching the polarizer I now have to make or find a protective holder that can fit the two joined. Once again I feel the manufacturer could be more customer helpful by providing a deeper carry case.

                  Great circular polarizer for landscape photography. Easy to use on Lee foundation kit with adapter. Only downside is that filter depth create vignetting when using wide angle lens in addition to two graduated and standard ND filters. Vignetting appears around 18 mm focal length. Other than vignetting great filter.

                              Love the polarizer effect, it's a must have for any photographer. Very clean output with this filter, you know you're working with a hight quality polarizer right from the start. I also like the lee setup, vs having screw on filters, so no issues with the setup.

                              My only complaint is that the twisting of the polarizer is tight, so you have to rotate it with two hands, one rotating and the other holding the lee adapter still (otherwise it would rotate itself). Keep in mind this is NOT a deal-breaker as I'm using this for landscapes not candid portrait work, but it is not a simple as spinning a generic screw on polarizer. Then again if you're using the lee system you aren't looking for the run and gun setup anyways so... Love the filter though, and if you have a lee setup you'll want to own this thing. It truly feels like it cost as much to make it as you paid for it.

                                You need a 105mm front thread adapter to use this filter
                                You can use this along with lee nd filters.havent seen much vignetting so far.
                                Not easy to get, out of stock most of the times.bit expensive

                                  screws on to the filter holder ,the size is great you can get your hand on it to rotate with out fussing like you do with the size you buy for each lense one polarizer does all, so far nothing bad

                                      I have planned to buy this polarizer for a while but can't find the adapter anywhere. Finally I found a used adaptor on line so I order this polarizer. It is really convenient to use with the LEE Foundation Kit. I can remove the polarizer attached to the lens which also helps to reduce vignetting. I use it with the Canon 17-40mm f4, full frame 5D Mkii without vignetting at even 17mm.

                                        I use this polarizer along with ND filters for long exposure photography. The Lee filters are a joy to use; they are all so well constructed and this 105mm circular polarizer is no different. I have held off for a long time from buying simply because it is such a large investment but so far I have not regretted it when I see the results.A 105mm lens cap should be included.

                                          This is a great polarizer for the Lee filter system. I wouldn't use any other filter or system.

                                            This is for use with the Lee filter holder plus accessory ring. The set-up is far more rugged than anything I have used and plenty large enough to avoid vignetting.
