Circular Polarizer - 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.

Note! Circular polarizers are specifically designed for use with auto-focus SLR cameras. (They will also work on manual systems and video cameras without problems).

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

      Comments about Sony 72mm Circular Polarizer:

      B&H shipping service is top notch, the item came to me just in a few days, a lot more faster than expected.
      Sony Carl Zeiss quality has nothing to complaint. The polarizing ring is really thin, smooth,it can be adjusted with just a touch of one finger, the whole thing is in a top quality engineering. With the right polarizing, it can take off about 1,3 stop. I am using it with my Sony 16-50mm f2.8, the result is just fantastic.
