The B+W 62mm Kaesemann XS-Pro Circular Polarizer MRC Nano Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure 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. The Nano coating associated with XS-Pro filters incorporates an additional 8th layer over the regular MRC and results in a better beading effect with water for greater cleaning efficiency.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. This filter features the XS-Pro Digital mount which is specifically designed for DSLR use with wide angle and zoom lenses. The filter ring is made from brass for durability as well as jamming prevention.

Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.
Kaesemann polarizing foils provide highly neutral coloring and higher image quality than conventional polarizing foils.
Multi-Resistant Coating offers both protection to the glass and helps to improve light transmission and image quality.
Nano coating promotes a better beading effect with water for more efficient cleaning.
Constructed from high-quality Schott glass for optical clarity.
Brass filter ring helps to prevent jamming and provides additional strength.
This filter ring's outside diameter is slightly larger than the actual thread size, and because of this you may be unable to attach the lens manufacturer's bayonet-mounted lens hood to the lens while using this filter. This is dependent on your specific lens and how thick the front rim of the lens is; with thinner, low-profile lenses usually being affected more.

      Great filter, as B & W filters always are. However, this filter contacted the anterior surface of my m.zuiko 12-40 2.8 lens. I had to purchase a 62mm extension ring to avoid having the filter scrape the surface of the lens. B & H would not allow me to return the filter since by the time I realized that this contact was occuring it was outside the return time window.

      So far each lens I received has come in with a minor scratch on the filter (I've tried twice so far). Ultimate fail.

        Comments about B+W 62mm Kaesemann XS-Pro Circular Polarizer MRC Nano Filter:

        After reading online about how some Oly 12-40 PRO owners experiened this filter coming in contact with the lens's front element, the first thing I did was test the clearance via a small piece of lens paper between the filter and lens. The paper moved about freely. No problems here; the filter operates as promised with typical B+W high quality.

                            Comments about B+W 62mm Kaesemann XS-Pro Circular Polarizer MRC Nano Filter:

                            Probably too expensive, but better than any other polarizing filter on the market. As a rather dedicated macro shooter, it's nice this filter fits all three Nikon macros I use (60, 105 and 200), since a polarizing filter can be necessary to cut the reflections on plant leaves in order to get good color saturation.

                            Optically this is terrific and the mechanics are perfect (as usual with B+W).
