Product Highlights
  • Helps to Eliminate Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • T* Anti-Reflective Coating
  • Slim Profile Filter Ring
  • High Quality Glass Construction

The 82mm Carl Zeiss T* Circular Polarizer Filter from Zeiss helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. A polarizer is able to absorb much of this polarized light and, in turn, increase the saturation of skies and foliage, cut through distant haze, and minimize reflections in glass and on water.

A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it integrates a quarter wave plane within a linear polarizing filter. The addition of this helps to circularly polarize reflected light, which enables your camera's autofocus and auto-exposure mechanisms to function properly.

The T* anti-reflective coating helps to reduce reflections on the filter's surface and promote a better light transmission for high quality imagery. The filter ring is designed with a slim profile to allow its use on wide angle lenses, but front filter threads are still available for the use of additional filters.

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Clears up haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
Strongest effect when used at a 90° angle from the sun.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.
T* anti-reflective helps to reduce surface reflections in order to produce greater light transmission for a higher quality image.

                  Comments about 82mm Carl Zeiss T* Circular Polarizer Filter:

                  Yes, this is an expensive filter. However, it's use on my new SP Tamron 24-70 seems justified. Also, the fairly narrow ring of this filter allows it to be used at 24mm and f2.8 with no additional vignetting (on this lens, and at this aperture and focal length, there is a little vignetting with no filter) and with the Tamron's standard lens hood.

                    Comments about 82mm Carl Zeiss T* Circular Polarizer Filter:

                    I mostly do outdoor photography and have been pleased with the results using this filter. I bought my lens and filter together so I don't have enough experience to draw an athoritative conclusion, but I do know that it is allowing me to get some intense blue skies in bright sunlit conditions and does an excellent job of eliminating glare on water. I would definitely recommend this to anyone considering this product.

                      The day will come when every photographer at one time or another will need to use a Polarizing filter. It's thin and does not vignette and it's made by Zeiss
                      and it's moderately priced too. What more do I need to say ?

                              I purchased this filter primarily for use with a Zeiss 21mm lens. The build quality of the filter seems to be right on par with the Zeiss lenses. Very well made. The filter threads on the lens well and has a good feel when rotating. There are threads on the outside face of the filter so you can thread additional filters or the Zeiss lens cap will fit. You can also use the lens hood with this filter.

                              Upon the very technical and specific critics that could be made by specialists and strongly experienced pro photographs, I shall say that those polarizer work perfectly with the Carl Zeiss distagon and Makro Planar lenses.

                              Easy to carry, to attach and to use. No deception for the price.
